A vice president at Quintiles, the world’s largest clinical research organization, has a pretty positive view of Kansas’ spot in the world of economic development in a story in Site Selection magazine.
Quintiles, which employs 22,000 people in 50 countries, has about 900 people working at its 236,000-square-foot complex in Overland Park. It moved to OP from KCMO in 2006.
The article also talks about the Economic Revitalization and Reinvestment Act the governor signed this year to land Cessna’s new Columbus plant and mentions Kansas’ favorable position in several business climate rankings.
From the article:
“Kansas is a very progressive state. It works hard to put together an environment and financial incentives that make this a very good place to be –- a place where you can be prosperous and grow,” McDermott says.
