Rhett Weiss and Womble Carlyle’s Strategic Initiatives Group are getting attention throughout economic development and site selection circles.

DCI, an industry leader in location marketing, recently noted Weiss joining Womble Carlyle and the creation of the Strategic Initiatives Group in DCI’s e-newsletter, On Location.

On Location wrote “Womble Carlyle has added a new element to its offerings with the creation of the Strategic Initiatives Group (SIG).  SIG is a business consulting practice focused on helping companies to identify and secure corporate development opportunities, create or acquire mission-critical facilities like data centers and production plants, and solve business challenges along the way. Anchoring this expansion is long-time industry deal maker and thought leader Rhett Weiss, who has joined the firm as SIG’s Managing Director.” The news appeared in the April 2016 edition of the e-newsletter.
