(Warrensburg, MO) Mary Beth Harper and Jeremy VanWey, representatives of U.S. Bank presented a $3,000 check to JCEDC President Drew Lewis and Executive Director Tracy Brantner in support of JCEDC’s mission. With over 50 volunteers and partners, Johnson County Economic Development Corporation (JCEDC) directs economic development initiatives, strives to facilitate a profitable environment for new and existing business, and assists leaders in their efforts to generate local development opportunities where businesses can create and retain new jobs and investment.
“We support JCEDC and its volunteers for all their efforts to improve the economic well-being of our bank customers and their families in the Johnson County area. U.S. Bank has been a financial partner in economic development for the region for more than 10 consecutive years. This foundation of support has enabled both organizations to continue to achieve mutually benefiting economic goals,” said Mary Beth Harper, Business Banking Relationship Manager for US Bank.
“Economic development impacts not only opportunities to work, but all aspects of life in our region. The financial support from U.S. Bank allows JCEDC to assist and serve Johnson County communities, business and industry, and individuals.” said Drew Lewis.
U.S. Bank contributes to the strength and health of our communities through the U.S. Bank Foundation and Corporate Giving. Total annual funding for both programs reached $58.4 million in 2017.
