DePaul University Alumni Sharing Knowledge (ASK) Program interview with Bill Stankiewicz

“What's the business climate in Georgia?”

ASK Mentor Bill Stankiewicz from Fayetteville, Georgia reports: "Georgia and Atlanta are beginning to emerge from the deep recession that has plagued the nation and region for the past two years. Corporate relocation announcements have picked up, home sales are firming and several major companies have been able to tap the credit markets in recent weeks, allowing them to shore up the balance sheets and stabilize their operations. Most important of all, the state's core competitive advantages remain intact. Georgia and Atlanta offer a compelling value for businesses looking to operate in the heart of the nation's fastest growing region, with good schools and an unparalleled transportation network. Recent notable arrivals include NCR Corporation, which is relocating its corporate headquarters from Dayton, Ohio, to Duluth and First Data Corporation, which is relocating from Denver to the Sandy Springs area. Another notable addition is a new Kia plant in West Point. In addition to production workers, Kia is hiring salaried professionals in accounting, HR, IT, legal, and administration." Bill is the VP and General Manager of Shippers Warehouse of Georgia and also sits on the Board of Directors of Southeastern Warehouse Assoc. He can offer a wealth of information in the warehousing and logistics industry, as well as the Georgia business climate for any of your mentees interested in these areas.
