Greater Des Moines Partnership Wins Mac Conway Award for Excellence in Economic Development for Fifth Consecutive Year

May 4, 2021

GREATER DES MOINES, IA (May 4, 2021) – The Greater Des Moines Partnership is one of 20 economic development organizations to win a Mac Conway Award for Excellence in Economic Development from Site Selection magazine. This is the fifth consecutive year the Partnership has won the award.

The awards, named in honor of Site Selection founding publisher H. McKinley "Mac" Conway, have been determined by an index that examines 2020 corporate facility investment as tracked by Site Selection’s proprietary Conway Projects database. Scores are awarded based on six criteria: total projects, total investment associated with those projects and jobs associated with those projects. The remaining three criteria represent a per capita calculation of those same metrics.

The Partnership is featured in an article in the May 2021 issue of Site Selection. The article mentions several companies that have recently worked on projects in Greater Des Moines (DSM), including Helena Agri-Enterprises, Electrical Power Products, The Waldinger Company, The Printer, Inc., Road Machinery and Supplies Co. and Schimberg.

“This recognition highlights the strength of DSM USA and helps position our region for future economic growth,” said Jay Byers, President & CEO of the Greater Des Moines Partnership. “We are dedicated to continuing to ensure our region is a best in class place to live, work and grow a business moving forward.”
