Brian Rauschenbach and Eliza Buxton of Sumter Economic Development and TheLINK Economic Development Alliance have both earned the prestigious title of SC Certified Economic Developer (SCCED). Brian and Eliza were two out of only 10 professionals throughout SC that were selected for the SC Economic Developers’ Association’s Advanced Symposium which covered topics such as negotiations, product and infrastructure development, site due diligence, deal structuring, incentives, marketing and communication strategies, and other topics relevant to the economic development profession. Each session throughout the robust year-long program involved graded exams followed by a final case study which had to be analyzed and presented before a group of certified economic development professionals. Brian and Eliza join Jay Schwedler as SC Certified Economic Developers within Sumter Economic Development and TheLINK Economic Development Alliance.
