Denver, Colorado – September 16, 2013
The National Governors Association toured Geotech Environmental Equipment, Inc. on behalf of the Colorado Department of Economic Development and the Colorado Workforce Development Council. The group is comprised of Business Leaders (Governor appointed Chairs of State Workforce Boards), and Directors of those boards. Participants were immersed in an experience that took them through the growth cycle of a Sector Partnership; from idea, to launch, to implementation, to sustainability.
“Geotech Environmental Equipment is honored to host the National Governors Association,” said Jeff Popiel, Geotech President and CEO. “We have worked closely with both the Denver and Colorado Offices of Economic Development to understand and create systems to support the labor needs of employers manufacturing products in the U.S.”
