The Town of Westlake received a major honor, winning the distinguished Excellence in Economic Development Award, presented by The Site Selectors Guild (SSG).
The Town won the award for its work in bringing the new Charles Schwab development to Westlake. The Schwab Corporation is currently constructing a $100-million regional campus at the intersection of Highways 170 and 114 that will bring approximately 1,200 new employees to the region.
Town Manager Tom Brymer accepted the award on Westlake’s behalf at the SSG’s annual conference in Tucson, Arizona where economic development professionals from around the world were on hand at the year’s event.
“To win an award like this from such a well-regarded organization like The Site Selectors Guild speaks volumes about where the Town of Westlake stands nationally in regards to corporate location. It’s not just the Schwab project, it’s the recent expansion by the Sabre Corporation as well. Couple that with Fidelity Investments and Deloitte University, who already call Westlake home and you can see how the Town has truly emerged as a “financial services corridor” for the Metroplex. The Schwab deal certainly has helped solidify that”, says Brymer.
