Partners for Growth



Believe in the Future

What is Partners for Growth?


For more than 25 years, the Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce has led our region’s economic development efforts with impressive and undeniable results.


Partners for Growth, Believe in the Future, the latest in a strong series of development campaigns, brings together a powerful coalition of public and private investors who believe in Mobile’s future, who build on its past triumphs and who work to keep Mobile moving forward.


Our economic development efforts are backed by funding from 160-plus business leaders, the City of Mobile and Mobile County, and led by a dedicated professional staff. Mobile’s team approach is widely considered “best practice” by peers and professionals nationwide, and these efforts have garnered repeated top rankings from national and global publications and site selectors.


Most importantly, the Mobile Area Chamber’s economic development campaigns have delivered significant return on investment by creating and retaining jobs, elevating incomes and salaries and diversifying our economic base.


Since 2006, the Mobile Area Chamber’s Partners for Growth initiative has recruited 42 new businesses and assisted with 86 expansions at existing companies. These efforts resulted in $8.5 billion in capital investment and more than 17,400 jobs with an average annual salary of $49,998.


Partners for Growth, Believe in the Future, a five-year (2013-2017), $10-million economic development program, co-chaired by Mike Saxon of Alabama Power Company and Brian Willman of Regions Bank, is lifting the Mobile area’s position as a top location for job growth and quality living to new heights.


Partners for Growth, Believe in the Future has set two main five-year goals:


  • Create 4,000 new jobs with average annual wage of $40,000.
  • Attract new and expansion project capital investment of $1.5 billion.
