    Update on Shared Service Center Initiative

    The EDC hosted a roundtable discussion in June featuring
    Massachusetts Secretary of Housing and Economic Development Greg Bialecki. We
    invited several New York site selectors as well as other state and regional economic
    development officials to join us for an engaging conversation about shared
    service center opportunities in our region for companies in the financial and
    professional services and IT sectors. We had hosted a similar roundtable in Boston
    in March. Secretary Bialecki has set an ambitious goal to speak to 50 companies
    who might be interested in opening a facility about the advantages of western
    Massachusetts during 2013. Based in part on contacts made at these roundtables,
    the Secretary is well on his way. If anyone wants to find out more about the
    deep labor pool available here and the reasonably priced real estate (including
    plug & play) for these facilities, please contact Mike Graney at the EDC,
    413-755-1300 or m.graney@westernmassedc.com.
