Rutherford Works: Chamber rebrands county's economic development effort

In the past few years the Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce has worked diligently to attract jobs to the county.

It’s efforts have been rewarded with high-profile relocations like the Amazon distribution center, the U.S. corporate headquarters of Schwan Cosmetics and mostly recently Enovate Medical.

Vice President of Economic Development Brian Hercules wants to continue the track record of success by rebranding the county’s economic development effort as “Rutherford Works.”

Hercules said he wanted to make Rutherford County more memorable to the businesses he courts. He believes this rebranding is the perfect way to do that.

“We want our citizens and those who are not familiar with us to understand that our county works for new and existing companies because of its many advantages, including geographic location, quality of life, educational systems and trained workforce,” he said. More here.
