LAS VEGAS— With approval by Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) board of directors, six companies will relocate or expand in Southern Nevada with the assistance of the Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance (LVGEA).
Fresh N Lean, Sunshine Minting, Warby Parker, Pitney Bowes, TCP Global, and Spreetail will add 1,512 regional jobs in the next five years.
“We’re thrilled to welcome these companies to our region,” said Jonas Peterson, President and CEO of LVGEA. “Our team is excited to see an increase in companies, like these, choosing to invest in our community and help diversify our local economy. As we continue to push through the challenges of the pandemic, I’m optimistic about Southern Nevada’s economic outlook.”
LVGEA works closely with GOED to ensure that businesses are able to receive the incentives they need to expand their businesses and help diversify the region.
“I’m very excited about the range of jobs these companies are creating in Nevada, most importantly in Southern Nevada which saw its leisure and hospitality sector nearly shut down during the pandemic,” said GOED Executive Director Michael Brown. “Diversifying Clark County’s economy is GOED’s top priority.”

In response, our annual revenue growth has exceeded 100% since 2015 and today we look forward to continuing this growth trajectory in our new home.
