JEDCO Releases 2015 Annual Report

AVONDALE, LA – The Jefferson Parish Economic Development Commission (JEDCO) released its 2015 Annual Report.

         Paul Rivera, 2015 JEDCO Chairman said:


         “It was an honor to serve as the Chairman of the JEDCO Board of Commissioners in 2015. JEDCO has served the Jefferson Parish business community since 1987 and each year, the organization sets the bar a little bit higher, achieving new successes and milestones. 2015 was no different; what a year to be a part of this organization! You may notice a common theme within the pages of this Annual Report. In 2015, JEDCO rebranded and developed a new logo to represent the group moving forward. The new look and feel has been widely accepted and celebrated within our community.

         “Last year also marked an opportunity to re-envision the future of Jefferson Parish. JEDCO revisited the Jefferson EDGE 2020, the Parish's long term economic development strategic plan. With the help of business leaders, stakeholders, and elected officials from all over Jefferson Parish, JEDCO updated the plan and identified new action items to propel the community into the future.

         “In 2015, JEDCO achieved reaccreditation through the International Economic Development Council. This prestigious recognition highlights JEDCO's role as an influencer in Jefferson Parish and the international economic development community. It is a testament to the JEDCO staff, which works diligently to enhance the economic climate on a regular basis.

         “JEDCO's reaccreditation also speaks to our community partnerships. We pride ourselves on our collaboration with elected officials, parish departments, and the business and civic organizations that represent the companies and residents located in Jefferson Parish. With strong community partners, like the Jefferson Chamber, we are able to effect change in our community and develop a stronger, more creative action plan to help Jefferson Parish become the preferred destination for all businesses.

         “As JEDCO moves into the future, I can assure you that it will remain dedicated to our businesses and the community that supports them. We look forward to continued momentum, prosperity, and success in Jefferson Parish.”
