HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - At a luncheon today, the Area Development Partnership kicked off a new capital campaign called Pinnacle.
The Area Development Partnership hopes the funds generated from this campaign will have a multiplier effect on the business community in the area.
The plan states that Pinnacle will focus on recruiting new companies to greater Hattiesburg in a variety of industries through recruitment missions, site development and actively marketing the region.
"It's awesome that we are already approaching 1.8 million of a 3 million dollar campaign goal. So this business community just steps up again and again as we try to achieve economic prosperity in greater Hattiesburg," said Chad Newell, Area Development Partnership president.
Newell went on to say that in the last 4 1/2 years the ADP has been able to work with 157 companies generating about 3500 new jobs for our area.
