58 companies pump $450 million into Southern Nevada’s economy

More than 2,700 jobs were created in Southern Nevada during the most recent fiscal year, as dozens of companies moved or expanded operations here.

Fifty-eight companies relocated or grew in Las Vegas, Henderson, North Las Vegas and unincorporated Clark County from July 2012 to June 2013, investing a total of more than $442 million, according to the Governor’s Office of Economic Development.

Just over a year ago, the Nevada Development Authority rebranded itself as the Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance. The board retooled its mission from regional recruiter to global player, rebuilt bridges with municipal economic development offices and bought into the governor’s strategy of attracting companies in key industries.

"It’s more important for us to get the entire region moving forward in one direction than it is for any one organization to be successful,” LVGEA CEO and President Tom Skancke said.
