Dianne Jones to Speak on Site Selection at SelectUSA 2021 Investment Summit

Maxis Advisors is pleased to announce that Dianne Jones, Senior Manager of Client Services, will be speaking on Site Selection for Foreign Direct Investment at the 2021 SelectUSA Investment Summit on June 8, 2021. 

Dianne will join an expert panel to speak about the myriad of factors that impact a company’s location decision, including supply chain, tax climate, workforce availability and wage rates, and real estate costs.  In today’s quickly-changing environment, having expert guidance to identify the tools and process to make the best decision is critical.

“The site selection process has never been more competitive and complex.  With increased raw material pricing, higher than ever labor competition and low inventory of existing buildings, who you know is just as important as what you know,” said Dianne.  “Over the last year, our team at Maxis Advisors has created opportunities for our clients through negotiations of sites, buildings and incentives to offset upfront and ongoing operational costs.”

Dianne is joined on the panel by Alex Frei of CBRE, John Scannapieco of Baker Donelson, and the discussion will be moderated by Andrew Shapiro of Biggins Lacy Shapiro & Company.  The session will air at 8:30 PM EST on June 8, 2021, during the all-virtual 2021 Summit and panelists will be available to chat live and answer participant questions.
