Augusta Named the South’s “Mid-Market of the Year”


southern businessSouthern Business & Development magazine has named Augusta to the South’s top honor as the best “Mid-Market of the Year” in 2017, according to the Augusta Economic Development Authority. In 2015, the magazine named Augusta as one of the “Ten Sizzling Mid-Market Economies” in the South.

Michael Randle, Publisher of Southern Business & Development, said, “Augusta garnered the top spot among all medium-sized economic development markets based on their strong recruitment efforts for new jobs and investments.” Randle continued, “Throughout the South, there are communities on the move, where cities’ economic growth and development are outpacing the rest of the country. Augusta is one of these cities, with the Augusta Economic Development Authority leading the way. Their overall ranking was impressive.”

In Randle’s state-by-state summaries, “It was a nice year for Georgia, with its highest point total in several years. A nice mix of industries and service projects. Augusta had a year like no other to win “Mid-Market of the Year”.
