Thanks to your support, 2017 was a historic year for GNO, Inc. and the Greater New Orleans region, with unprecedented progress for our economy and community. Highlights included:
- DXC Technology – Following an 18-month process, and capping off a decade-long strategic push, DXC Technology announced that it will establish a 2,000-job “Digital Transformation Center” in New Orleans. This is the single largest economic development job win in Greater New Orleans and Louisiana history; the effort was co-led by GNO, Inc. along with LED and local partners
- British Airways – History was also made in March, when British Airways lifted off from MSY and flew direct to London Heathrow, marking the first non-stop flight to Europe since 1982. GNO, Inc. co-led the team that landed this flight, and other new international service, including Copa (Panama) and Condor (Germany)
- National Flood Insurance – GNO, Inc. leads the national Coalition for Sustainable Flood Insurance, which has pushed NFIP to the verge of a multi-year reauthorization and reform package that will protect coastal Louisiana and all of America
- Best in America – To cap off the year, GNO, Inc. was named one of the “Top Economic Development Organizations in the USA” (one of 11 of 25,00) by Site Selection magazine
All of us at GNO, Inc. are deeply appreciative of the many supporters and partners that make our work and wins possible. Thank you for your extraordinary collaboration, and here’s to an outstanding 2018!
