Jeff Finkle, CEO Podcast: Conversations on Economic Opportunity

By Paul Krutko, SPARK


Jeff Finkle, President of the IEDC

Ann Arbor SPARK CEO Podcasts: Conversations on Economic Opportunity capture the flavor of my one-on-one conversations with over one hundred key economic leaders in the region, including private sector CEOs, elected and appointed public sector leaders, and the executive leadership of key non-profit and academic institutions. The podcast series is designed to not only highlight that expertise, but also make it available to others who could benefit from the wisdom those business leaders can share.

Jeff Finkle is the president of IEDC. The 2013 IEDC Spring Conference was recently held in Ann Arbor, bringing more than 350 economic development professionals to the region.

In my conversation with Jeff, he gives his perspective on the use of incentives to spur investment and job creation. He also discusses his biggest accomplishments during his 30-year career in economic development.
