Brunswick – Glynn County Development Authority Mission, Staff, and History
The Brunswick and Glynn County Economic Development Authority (Development Authority) is the organization that is tasked with the creation of jobs and investment in Glynn County through the attraction, retention, and expansion of businesses.
Business attraction is very competitive and demands a lot of attention. The Development Authority promotes the development of economic assets such as industrial parks and educational infrastructure and develops incentive packages that attract new businesses to the area. Read more below.
The Coastal BEST (Business Expansion Support Team) ensures that our local business stay here and are growing. Members of the Coastal BEST make two visits a year to each industry. Information is gathered on challenges and opportunities and the best solution is determined based on the needs of the business and state and local resources.
Growth is the natural result of increased demand and requires prompt attention to meet that demand. The Development Authority works closely with existing industries and often provides assistance with locating/securing financing, workforce training/hiring, developing utility infrastructure or any number of other projects.
