Connection Points | July 2022

Tina Quigley

President & CEO

As the summer heats up, so does the action at your local economic development agency!

In June, we hosted a record-breaking 700+ registered participants at our 42nd annual Las Vegas Perspective. The event focused on how the region can grow in a sustainable way, despite land, talent, and water challenges, and we hope attendees came away with a positive outlook on Southern Nevada’s future.

We also recently added nine new members to our LVGEA50 Board of Directors, strengthening and increasing our partnerships with local municipalities, utilities, and businesses.

Plus, four LVGEA-assisted companies, Bella + Canvas, Crocs, F of N, and Novva Holdings, will bring more than 1,000 jobs to Southern Nevada after being approved for state incentives by the Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development. Thanks to our partners in Clark County and North Las Vegas with helping bring these companies here!

As we head into the second half of 2022, we remain focused on creating economic opportunities for all Southern Nevadans.

Investor Connection

Here, we spotlight our investors at the Champion level and above, showcasing the work they are doing to improve Southern Nevada.

The Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) was created during the 2011 Session of the Nevada Legislature through a collaboration of the Nevada Governor’s Office and the Leadership of the Nevada State Senate and State Assembly (Authority: NRS 231) with a vision and mission to create a vibrant, innovative, and sustainable economy with high-paying jobs for Nevadans.

GOED coordinates and oversees the economic development activities and efforts of eight Regional Development Authorities, one of which is the Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance.

Since January of 2019, GOED has approved abatements for 86 companies. Within five years these companies will add 13,227 jobs and make $2.4 billion in capital investment in the State of Nevada. Over the next ten years these companies will generate more than $1.2 billion in new net tax revenues for our state.

The team at GOED is working with stakeholders to pursue visionary policies that set Nevada apart for the future, continuing the state’s drive for resilience and diversification. Where in 2018 the state’s largest employers were spread across four industry sectors, they are now spread across eight: aerospace and defense, health, information technology, manufacturing, logistics, mining, and natural resource technologies.

Some notable accomplishments the GOED team has achieved in the last year:

The Governor’s Office of Economic Development also oversees the Nevada’s Procurement & Technical Assistance Program (PTAC) and the Nevada Film Office.
