Beaufort County Economic Development

Posted on Apr 04, 2018
 
John O'Toole, Executive Director for Beaufort County Economic Development
Corporation, gave the Rotary Club of Bluffton an overview of efforts to
bring new businesses into the county. O'Toole also spent some time
explaining how they plan and work with organizations such as USCB and TCL to
prepare a workforce for new businesses. Their goal for next year is to bring
in $50 million in revenues and 200+ new jobs by June 2019. Beaufort County's
work force "hidden weapon" is our military presence; every year 800 - 1200
Marines either retire or transition out of the Marines into our county.
O'Toole's key to development? Look for 3 things: Simple, Swift and Certain.
