TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now)

As Tucson Regional Economics Opportunities, Inc. expands its footprint across Southern Arizona, it will now be called Sun Corridor Inc.

For years TREO has been helping several employers expand in our area including advocating for military installations including Ft. Huachuca; and establishing new Foreign Trade Zone sites in Pinal County.

"The drivers discussed in TREO's Blueprint are the keys to strengthening our competitiveness, and by addressing talent, infrastructure, healthcare and collaboration regionally through the Sun Corridor we differentiate Southern Arizona in the marketplace for high wage jobs," said Guy Gunther, chairman, TREO Board of Directors and Vice President Operations, Arizona, CenturyLink.

"TREO leadership recognized through this work that we have a significant opportunity to coalesce one market under a unified brand," said Denny Minano, TREO Executive Committee member and Managing Director, CMM. "We began to seriously consider a tangible structure that defines Sun Corridor business opportunities and provides a path to combine expertise in the attraction and expansion of business, thereby increasing our global competitiveness."

"With Mexico's growing economic strength, it paves the way to market the entire Southern Arizona/Sonoran region as a bi-national, world-class center in integrated research, manufacturing and supply chain strength," said Fletcher McCusker, TREO Executive Committee member and CEO, Sinfonia HealthCare Corporation. "Few economic development groups have the unique strategic position of this 'perfect storm' of opportunities."

"President Kennedy said, "with this new regional partnership we will emerge as a stronger competitor in the global economy and position ourselves to be an attractive choice for expanding local business and recruiting new ones," said Anthony Smith, Chair of the Pinal County Board of Supervisors and new TREO Board member.

Effective August 1st Sun Corridor will be located at 1985 E. River Road in Tucson.
