It’s an enormous asset, and among one of our greatest recruitment tools, to be able to showcase well-known Tennessee companies that find success in our state. These companies help strengthen Tennessee’s global reputation of dedicated and skilled craftsmanship across a variety of sectors, and each of these stories is told in a new, unique way.”
