Letter From the President & CEO, John Carpenter

Dear DuPage County Businesses, Residents & Stakeholders, It is an honor to have been selected as President & CEO of Choose DuPage. In the month since I have been at Choose DuPage, I have continuously been impressed and inspired by the collaboration between the public and private-sectors to grow and expand our economy. A lot has been accomplished since Choose DuPage was formed in 2005, but there is a lot more to be done. As President & CEO, my job is to establish DuPage County as a premier global business location. This means that we will continue to seek new and innovative ways to generate opportunities that will grow, retain and attract office, retail, industrial, and commercial businesses. DuPage County is a formidable economic force. Our greatest opportunities continue to be our inherent advantages – quality of life, educated workforce, location and access to an extensive transportation network, and the businesses and people that create this diverse and growing economy. Communicating these advantages locally, nationally and globally will be our biggest opportunity for continued growth and success. The future is bright in DuPage County, and I look forward to being a part of it. Sincerely, John A. Carpenter
