"I recently had the privilege to be part of a team representing the Shenandoah Valley Partnership and the I-81 Corridor Group at the CoreNet Global Summit (Corporate Real Estate Network) in Chicago. It was a great trip, I learned a lot, and I came home more convinced than ever that we have the best message in the game – this region has the best workforce, the best educational institutions, the best transportation network and the best access to customers anywhere in the world.”
“Farm Credit’s affiliation with the Shenandoah Valley Partnership helps promote balanced growth in our area. Agriculture is our region’s number one industry. The Shenandoah Valley has four of the top five agricultural counties in the state. SVP helped bring Shamrock Farms’ new milk processing facility here. We’re proud to help SVP grow local resources and opportunities for all industries - especially for our farmers and agribusinesses.”
"As a firm who supports multiple regional economic development organizations and is heavily involved in the Virginia Economic Developers Association – I know the Shenandoah Valley is well-represented by the SVP staff, especially Robin Sullenberger, at the state and national level, and works hard to leverage all resources, work with neighboring regions, and develop the right opportunities for the region."
"We are a strong believer in partnerships whether profit/nonprofit or public/private. We aim to harvest the strengths and competitive advantages of each party to deliver the most beneficial result for the customer. All parties are then vested with a sense of satisfaction and purpose as we work together."
"Growing up in the military, my family lived all over the world in a lot of different communities. When my husband and I relocated to the Valley, our experience was so pleasant and refreshing. Harrisonburg felt like home right away. The people here are so friendly and welcoming and it didn’t take long at all to feel like this is where we belong."
