Congratulations to 3x POWER 10 client, Partnership Gwinnett, on the successful public kickoff of the Partnership Gwinnett (PG) 4.0 capital campaign. PG 4.0 Campaign Co-Chairs Jay Dennard (Northside Hospital) and Jennifer Fennell (Jackson EMC) announced to approximately 70 business and community leaders that PG has already raised nearly $2.3 million towards the $3.5 million campaign stretch goal (65%) during the campaign’s “quiet phase.”
Attendees had the opportunity to learn about the PG 4.0 initiative which addresses various community challenges and includes three mutually supporting goals:
- GOAL 1: Business Development
- GOAL 2: Talent Development
- GOAL 3: Community Development
In addition to remarks by the Campaign Co-Chairs and Partnership Gwinnett Vice President Economic Development Andrew Carnes, Georgia Department of Economic Development Commissioner Pat Wilson served as the guest speaker. Commissioner Wilson highlighted a record-breaking year for jobs and capital investment statewide; 33K new jobs and $11B total investments. He specifically cited big “wins” in Gwinnett like Intuitive and Soliant as significant contributors to the state’s overall economic development progress.
Senior Counsel Demetrius Jordan, Executive Vice President Amity Farrar, Chief Executive Officer Sean Mikula and the rest of our team at POWER 10 are pleased to have worked with the aforementioned and other key Partnership Gwinnett leaders, and we look forward to a successful conclusion to the campaign in the coming months!
