WILMINGTON, OH — The Clinton County Port Authority (CCPA) recently launched a new website, created by Golden Shovel Agency, to further strengthen its online presence and the economic growth of the community. The new site includes county-wide data, information specifically collected for site selectors, and local business resources to serve as a one-stop-shop for companies considering new investment or expansion in Clinton County.

“We intended for this site to showcase opportunities throughout the county, along with resources for our business community,” said Jennifer Klus Ekey, Economic Development Director at the Clinton County Port Authority. “The organization is pleased to roll out a new economic development website that houses business information and data about Clinton County, along with available sites and buildings.”

Historically, Clinton County did not have a website dedicated to economic development opportunities. The CCPA pursued a resource that would capitalize on the many assets of the community, by sharing information with businesses looking to grow or relocate. This new website is a key component of the Port Authority’s marketing efforts and will help it achieve goals related to facilitating site selection and informing current residents and businesses.

The Clinton County Port Authority collaborated with Golden Shovel Agency for its website design project. The national economic development communications firm is recognized for its award-winning design and expertise in business and workforce attraction. “Working with Golden Shovel has been great. The process is well managed and organized; we really liked all the features that we could incorporate into the website and think it gives us maximum flexibility as an organization,” Klus Ekey said.

“Working with the Clinton County Port Authority team has been a treat for us. We look forward to seeing all the great things they will accomplish with the help of this new resource,” said Aaron Brossoit, CEO of Golden Shovel Agency.
