Joey Grisham

Director of Business Recruitment -
Joey Grisham, director of business recruitment, is an economic development veteran with extensive experience in management, operations, economic development and recruiting. Grisham joined the Greater Irving-Las Colinas Chamber in January 2015 after working in chamber leadership roles for more than 14 years.
Grisham is responsible for attracting and recruiting new businesses to the Irving-Las Colinas market, a market which includes six Fortune 500 global headquarters. He works closely with key partners including Chamber leadership, brokers and site selectors, existing firms, city officials and current Chamber members.
Before joining the Irving Chamber, Grisham served as the President and CEO of the Hutto Economic Development Corporation in the Austin, Texas area. Under his leadership, Hutto was selected as a finalist for the Tesla Gigafactory Project and land options were secured for a 1,200 acre rail megasite. His work was recognized by several national publications, including Fortune. In addition, he is quoted frequently in the Austin American-Statesman and The Dallas Morning News.
Grisham also served as the President of the Southeast Mississippi Economic Development Association, and has served in numerous economic development leadership roles across the southeast. Having worked as an economic development and retail consultant on projects in Texas, Wisconsin, Indiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Alabama, and Arizona, Grisham brings a unique understanding of the challenges facing companies looking to relocate and expand. Early in his career, Grisham was an intern for the Tennessee General Assembly and worked for a large global medical device firm.
Splenda, American Apparel, Tesla, EADS, HEB, Kroger, Shell, and Pioneer Aerospace are just a few of the companies Grisham has had the pleasure of working with on successful expansion and relocation projects.
Grisham holds a B.A. in Political Science and Business from the University of Mississippi, a M.A. in Political Science from the University of Memphis, and a M.S. in Economic Development from the University of Southern Mississippi.

"I am so very proud of our two communities, Williamson County, the State of Texas, Taylor ISD, Hutto ISD, and the Austin Chamber of Commerce for putting forth such a herculean effort in pursuit of this project," said Hutto EDC President Joey Grisham.

"This is a game-changer site," said Joey Grisham, president of the Hutto Economic Development Corp.

Hutto didn't have an available 5 million-square-foot building, but Grisham said the community submitted a proposal to build on several hundred acres.
Grisham said he could get Taylor to help enlarge Hutto's original proposal of several hundred acres.
Grisham said Hutto-Taylor had put together a package of tax abatements and rebates worth $800 million to $900 million over 20 years. It had spent $20,000 for an option on the 1,200-plus acres.
The only upfront money would be whatever the state offered from the Texas Enterprise Fund.
"We knew no one was going to give $500 million upfront," Grisham said.
Nevada provided a $1.3 billion package, including tax breaks that will allow Tesla to operate the factory virtually tax-free for years.
"I don't view it as a loss because look at the exposure we're going to get," Grisham said. "This is the biggest project talked about in the world."
He said the Hutto-Taylor partnership is trying to extend the options on the land and is approaching investors to buy the land - at a cost of $20 million - to keep the megasite together for a game-changing project.
