CERC’s Jason Giulietti Named One of North America’s Top 50 Economic Developers

Connecticut Economic Resource Center (CERC) Vice President of Business Recruitment Jason Giulietti has been named one of North America’s Top 50 Economic Developers. The 2018 list, developed by Consultant Connect, a consulting agency designed to bridge the gap between economic developers and site consultants, was announced this week.

The economic development professionals selected for this list were nominated by their colleagues in both the economic development industry and the site consultant community for excellent practices, innovation and success in building the communities they serve. 

“This annual list recognizing North America’s Top 50 Economic Developers is designed to acknowledge the hard work of the top leaders in this field and elevate the conversation around economic development and job creation,” said Ron Kitchens, managing partner of Consultant Connect. “Each of the leaders represented on this year’s list are beyond deserving of this recognition for their efforts in building our communities.”   

Each top 50 economic developer will be featured individually from September 17 through November 30 through Consultant Connect’s social media channels. Each of the award winners will share their expertise in the field and a few leadership insights they’ve learned along the way. Giulietti is scheduled to be featured on November 27.

At CERC, Giulietti supports the state’s business development and recruitment initiatives by cultivating and managing relationships with strategic partners and prospective business clients interested in doing business in Connecticut.

“Jason has earned this recognition by virtue of his expertise, professionalism and relentless determination to advance Connecticut’s economy by working closely with prospective businesses, extolling the virtues of Connecticut and achieving results that boost the state’s economy and bring jobs to our state,” said Robert Santy, President and CEO of CERC. “His colleagues at CERC, and at the state and municipal level, congratulate him on this well-deserved recognition.”

Each recipient will receive their award at Consultant Connect’s ECONOMIX event in Nashville in December. The entire list of recipients can be seen at
