Dawn WhiteRegional Managing Director for State & Community Affairs, American Airlines

The Miami-Dade Beacon Council’s economic development professionals provided critical data and analysis which helped my client choose Miami for their new Latin American headquarters. They also helped the employees transition into Miami.  This relocation of their office to Miami resulted in over 80 jobs and $50 million in capital investment in our community… and a very happy client.
