Here’s how GPEC closed even more deals during the pandemic

By Erin Thorburn | AZ Big Media

If Chris Camacho was Wall Street, he would be a constant bull market. During his tenure as the president and CEO of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council (GPEC), the economic development association has led the attraction of more than 414 companies creating more than 74,000 jobs and $11 billion in capital investment. Some of the more notable projects include Apple, Deloitte, Infosys, Creighton Medical School, Silicon Valley Bank, Zenefits, GoDaddy, Yelp, Amazon, Garmin, General Motors and Microsoft.

But, like every business leader, Camacho and GPEC faced challenges in 2020 and the COVID-19 pandemic created many unanswered questions, particularly in the business world.

Az Business talked with Camacho about how the pandemic impacted economic development efforts and what we can expect from GPEC in 2021.
