"We're a strong believer in economic development - it's a pretty simple equation to know that in our business if our community does well, we do well. So economic development has always been part of our plan, in particular as Sun Corridor Inc. was formed. We've been very enthusiastic in our support for Sun Corridor Inc. and the work that's being done. In a short time Sun Corridor Inc. and the efforts of its members and the local governments have contributed what looks like over a billion dollars in favorable economic development to this community. And I like to think that's just the beginning."

"I think the biggest single thing Tucson did was demonstrate a tremendous partnership across all levels of the different organizations involved - from the state, to the city, to the county, to Sun Corridor Inc. to the Rio Nuevo team.

“Ascensus is the nation’s largest independent retirement and college savings services provider and we had many options when it came to establishing our first west coast facility. Similar to most companies, we needed to find a location that would serve our workforce needs but there was one thing that Tucson had that others did not; a coordinated, positive message from every person we spoke to. We were struck at how welcoming Tucsonans are and how much they all wanted us to be a part of their community.”
