Jay Chesshir, president and CEO of the Little Rock Regional Chamber of Commerce, told Talk Business and Politics that he has not seen more robust potential for economic development than he’s seeing right now.
“I’ve been in this business now for 30 years. We have never in my career had a pipeline like we have today… in a very good way,” Chesshir said in an interview with Roby Brock. “Our problem is working with our partners across the region and developing more product. If we don’t have sites, if we don’t have buildings, then we don’t have product to sell.”
Chesshir said the cities of Little Rock, North Little Rock, and Conway are growing and on many radars for potential projects. He also noted Searcy, Pine Bluff, and Lonoke are also seeing an uptick in calls to go along with other high-growth communities like Cabot, Benton, and Bryant.
