NOVI, Mich., August 14, 2017 – Novi’s new Economic Development Director Alan Weber is no stranger to business growth. In fact, during his five year stint in Oakland County as a senior business development representative, he helped create and implement programs that brought the county nearly 8,000 new jobs and more than $1 billion new investments.
Weber, who started his job in Novi today, comes to a community experiencing a great deal of business success. Small businesses and headquarters for large international companies alike are choosing Novi, many building from the ground up while several others are investing in current facilities.
“We are seeing a lot of positive momentum, and Alan is the perfect choice to lead our economic development efforts as we seek to build a quality, diverse and sustainable tax base,” said City Manager Peter E. Auger.
Prior to working for the county, where he led the international business attraction program, Weber worked as a business development manager for Ann Arbor Spark and was the associate director for the Eight Mile Boulevard Association.
He has extensive knowledge of Novi, and is anxious to start meeting with current business owners and promote the City to prospective candidates.
“It’s crucial that we work with the community to strategically plan for future growth, while also striving to support our current businesses and ensure their success,” Weber said.
