Eric Miller, the new Senior Vice President of Economic Development, of the Memphis Chamber of Commerce will speak about “A Data-driven Approach to Economic Development.” Eric brings a disciplined, data-driven approach that will help us play smarter offense when it comes to business recruitment,” said Richard Smith, President & CEO of FedEx Trade Networks and Chairman of the Board for the Greater Memphis Chamber. “He has extensive experience successfully targeting the types of companies and industries that make sense based upon a community’s unique civic assets.” 
In addition to hiring a new Economic Development leader, the Chamber has commissioned two studies to help shape an economic development roadmap to address stagnant job growth in the region. “We’ve taken a serious look at our competitiveness as a region and it is clear that we need a far more aggressive recruitment and attraction strategy,” said Phil Trenary, President & CEO of the Greater Memphis Chamber. “Eric brings a tremendous amount of experience using a data driven, proactive approach to target companies with a marketing message that can truly sell the assets of this city.”
