Business Development Manager Jake Cooper joins council’s legislative committee

Representatives from TGB Group attended the recent Texas Economic Development Council (TEDC) conference, held Feb. 22 in San Antonio, Texas.  During the conference, Jake Cooper, who oversees business development for TGB, joined the council’s legislative committee.

Jake has been with TGB since September, 2017 and is tasked with generating new business for the company by establishing liaisons with potential customers and area engineers and designers.  He looks forward to helping the TEDC committee push for better representation and development opportunities for the cities of Texas.

Based in Austin, Texas, TEDC is a non-profit professional association that creates economic and employment opportunities throughout Texas.  It is the largest association of its kind in the state.  TGB is proud to now have a voice in TEDC operations as we all look toward to increasing Texas business development and strengthening our economy.

The Feb. 22 conference was attended by more than 150 people, primarily representatives of city economic development organizations with the balance made up of contractors, engineering firms and other companies engaged in municipal projects.  The central topic of the conference was addressing the challenges faced by Texas cities in increasing economic development as well as assessing opportunities for local investment and economic growth.

At TGB Group, our sights are set on building strong relationships with cities across Texas.  In recent months, we’ve designed several projects in Big Spring, Texas.  We are helping them build the Big Spring Railroad support yard and working with the city to develop some spec warehouse space in the McMahon Wrinkle Air/Industrial Park.

In addition, we recently completed the design of several streets and a water-main in a 177-acre industrial park for the Jacksboro, Texas Economic Development Council.

With every new project, we’re working hard to help Texas grow and realize its fullest potential with increased revenue and more jobs for our residents.
