Site seeing: Location consultants eye Florida's incentives policy

Mike Vogel | 2/27/2017

The debate in Florida over offering incentives to companies locating operations here has drawn the attention of a crucial national audience: Site selectors, the consultants paid by corporations to find and evaluate sites and negotiate incentive deals.

Dropping incentives, says, Del Boyette, of Boyette Strategic Advisors, an Arkansas firm that works in Florida, “sends a message you’re not open for business anymore. You don’t want to compete. It’s not true, but it’s what people think.”

“It’s not helpful,” agrees another such consultant, Mark Sweeney.

Ballot Box

Do you support or oppose the U.S. Senate's GOP health care plan?

  • I support it - good start
  • I oppose it - because it doesn't repeal Obamacare enough
  • I oppose it - because it would harm low-income, seniors and more
  • Unsure, need to study it more
