CenterState CEO, ABC Creative Group Collaborate on Amazon HQ2 Pitch

(10/19/17 – Syracuse, N.Y.) The world's largest internet retailer is looking for a second home and ABC Creative Group is working with CenterState CEO to get Central New York on the short list.

Amazon announced it was shopping around for second corporate headquarters, known simply as HQ2, in September. The proposals have poured in from around the continent.

CenterState CEO believes Central New York has a legitimate shot based on its location, low cost of living, wealth of higher education and numerous incentives in terms of both tax breaks and significant energy savings.

CenterState CEO came to ABC for assistance with design of the important proposal. The 50-pager was laid out and sent to Amazon headquarters in Seattle in mid-October to meet a tight deadline set by the retailer.

HQ2 promises to invest $5 billion in development and bring as many as 50,000 high-salary jobs, enough heft to change the economic complexion and future of an area like Central New York.
