4/13/2022 // ZEELAND, MICH – Jennifer Owens, Lakeshore Advantage President, has been named on Consultant Connect’s North America’s Top 50 Economic Developers of 2022 list. Lakeshore Advantage is an economic development organization that assists employers with growth opportunities in Ottawa and Allegan counties.


“This is a win not just for me but for all of us at Lakeshore Advantage,” said Owens. “I love leading the standing ovation, not only for my team but also for key partners who contributed to our shared success. Congratulations to all awardees!”


Consultant Connect, a consulting agency designed to bridge the gap between economic developers and site consultants, announced its list of North America’s Top 50 Economic Developers of 2022 today. The economic development professionals selected for this list were nominated by their colleagues in both the economic development and site location consulting industries for excellent practices, innovation, and success in building the communities they serve.


“Releasing the Top 50 list is one of Consultant Connect’s favorite times of the year because we are so passionate about recognizing economic development leaders’ transformative work. This year’s group faced hurdles unlike any other Top 50 group has seen over the past year, and we are honored to provide a platform for them to be recognized for the passionate commitment they’ve made to their communities,” said Carla Sones, managing director of Consultant Connect. This annual list recognizing North America’s Top 50 Economic Developers is designed to acknowledge top leaders in this field and elevate the conversation around economic development and job creation.

 

Starting May 9, each listed economic developer will be featured individually through selected social media channels such as Instagram, LinkedIn, and Twitter where each award recipient will have the opportunity to share industry knowledge, leadership insights, and career wisdom with fellow industry professionals.
