The new head of AR-TX Regional Economic Development Inc. in Texarkana has been on the job just a few weeks, but he has big plans for aggressively marketing the area.
Rob Sitterley was recently picked to head AR-TX REDI, the new economic development group covering Bowie and Miller Counties.
Sitterley has over a decade of experience in economic development in other states including Florida and New York. He points out Texarkana’s major assets including roads, rail, and schools.
He said he’s working on a marketing campaign to promote the area to the rest of the world.
“What businesses we want to go and attract, it’s gonna be manufacturing. This is a gold mine, this community, for manufacturing and industrial projects.“
Sitterley is also aggressively looking for parcels of land available to sell to businesses interested in locating in the area.
