Catalyst for Economic Development

  • Harnessing the rich human and capital assets we possess across our region.

  • Creating greater opportunities for growth and championing workforce and human resource development to meet evolving business needs at an aggregate level.

  • Serving as a scaled voice for the region in governmental relations, pursuing potential funding from state and federal grant programs.

  • Coordinating efforts by existing entities and institutions for the greatest collective impact.

  • Amplifying existing local and regional development efforts to new levels through scale and cooperation, serving as a central point of contact for Tennessee ECD.

“The creation of the Hub is both a finish line and a starting point. The Hub represents the culmination of many conversations on regionalism over the last several years and the belief of many different people that we are better together. More importantly, it signals a new approach to collaboratively redefine what economic development can be for our region and how we can uncover a greater level of prosperity for everyone that calls Northeast Tennessee and Appalachian Highlands home.”

Will Barrett, President and CEO, Bank of Tennessee
