LEAP Reports Record Numbers for 2013 Year End Report

LANSING, MI- LEAP released its 2013 Year End Project Report, announcing that LEAP projects have helped the private sector create 2,105 direct private sector jobs and $466,824,00 in direct investment for the Lansing area in 2013.

“Our Lansing region is one of the hottest economies in the State and country. We’re building Fortune 500 national headquarters, tier one auto suppliers, huge car assembly expansions, one of the world’s leading medical isotope production facilities as well as a plethora of startup and expanding high tech companies,” said Bob Trezise, President and CEO of LEAP. “We thank our local partners and the MEDC as every project is ultimately put together with a team approach.”

In 2012 and 2013 combined, LEAP projects helped the private sector create a total of 2,885 direct private sector jobs and $565,064,00 in total direct investment throughout Clinton, Eaton and Ingham counties.  These numbers are only direct numbers. They do not include retention, indirect, or construction jobs.

The numbers released in the 2013 Year End Projects Report reflect LEAP’s mission and continued success in attracting and expanding new businesses, jobs and investment to the Lansing area. In addition to the jobs and investment wins, LEAP has supported numerous workgroup-related efforts including the creation of a regional incubation network, agriculture development, global talent retention, corridor improvement, etc.

2014 LEAP Chairman Dennis Swan adds, “Our Lansing region and LEAP are hitting on all cylinders, elevating our region onto a more global stage.  We are successfully competing for growth and development opportunities on that stage by all of us working together as one region.”

This 2013 LEAP Year End Project Report details only projects that LEAP directly and actively worked on. It is not a report on all activity throughout the region. If so, the numbers would be even greater. The rapid growth throughout the region relies on the support of an incredible LEAP Board of Directors who dedicate their time and resources to support LEAP’s efforts.
