The RMA Economic Development Team is led by Kevin S. Crowder, a certified economic developer who operated an award-winning program for the City of Miami Beach for 15 years. Kevin finds the economic niche of each client and then defines a bold and stimulating plan and direction to drive economic growth.
BusinessFlare™ is RMA’s unique, trademarked approach to economic development that integrates market reality into a local government’s strategic plan, annual budget process and day-to-day operations. It is practical methodology we use to identify an effective strategy that efficiently utilizes limited staff resources. Following the plan will result in new retail business openings, less vacant storefronts, more commercial development and new jobs!
Economic Development is inevitable, but where it occurs is not. So we focus on the key drivers of investment, combining an evaluation of the real world influence a local government has over each driver with recognition of the influences that are beyond the local government’s control. This is essential to identify strategies that truly encourage economic growth and strengthen a community’s credibility, customer service and cash flow potential.
