Guy Gunther, Arizona vice president and general manager of CenturyLink and TREO's current chairman, said the new plan is focused on strategies that can reap results across a range of growth industries, though the sectors identified in 2007 are still key.
"The industries that were identified then pretty much held up; they've proven to be the ones that leverage the assets we have here," Gunther said. "But the strategies did need to be updated."
While before the recession companies looking to expand or relocate were focused on the best deal they could get, now they're more focused on such things as available talent and health care, including employee wellness and access to quality care, Gunther said.
"The availability of talent is really what drives winning these deals," he said.
Along with health care, transportation and logistics have been given new emphasis, Gunther said, to capitalize on efforts to build new trade corridors with Mexico that include trying to extend the proposed Interstate 11 through Pima County.
A major thrust of the new blueprint, Gunther and Snell said, is embodied in its subtitle, "We Win as One."
"We've only recovered about 35 percent of the jobs lost during the Great Recession," Gunther said.
