BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. (June 24, 2019) – Bonita Springs Estero Economic Development Council has launched new branding that complements its name change to South Lee EDC.

            “This new brand aligns our identity and purpose to reflect our regional approach to addressing issues that affect south Lee County, from Bonita Springs and Estero to the Alico corridor,” said Don Thomson, South Lee EDC chairman. “Just as the issues that face our area aren’t confined by city or village boundaries, neither are our efforts to serve as an impactful economic development resource partner.”

            The new name and brand will be commemorated at the upcoming EDC Social, 4-6 p.m., Wednesday, July 10, in the Cohen Center, Room 214, at Florida Gulf Coast University.

Committed to supporting and developing a thriving business community, South Lee EDC’s key strategic priorities are quality of life, workforce development, and business retention and expansion. The EDC exists to support thoughtful growth in local communities, to help relocating companies successfully plant new roots, and to attract business and resource partners that make the region economically stable.

Established in 2011, the EDC is overseen by a board of directors and supported by investors and resource partners that represent the local business community. Programming, events and task forces provide opportunities for organizations and people to become involved and serve the community.

South Lee EDC is organized to build a place to live and work that is economically diverse with a year-round economy that enhances the environment and reflects the character of the inhabitants of the south Lee County area. For more information, visit or contact Tiffany Esposito at 239-333-2332 or
