About Us

Our Experience


Head Down Strategies, LLC provides planning and economic development assistance and services to a wide range of public and private clients.  Our firm draws on experience in local, regional and state government as well as the private sector.  With over 25 years of experience in planning and economic development, our team members have worked  in all areas of economic development including site selection, marketing, business development, project management, incentives negotiation and strategic planning.  

Our team members have worked on a variety of projects both urban and rural, guiding projects to success in  both small urban communities and large, rural county governments.  Project management in these areas often began with the initial contact of both domestic and international clients and followed through to groundbreaking ceremonies with top local and state officials. 

Head Down Strategies has hands-on experience running successful economic development programs working with teams that announced over 7,500 new jobs and $900M in new local investment.  At the state level, working for the Virginia Economic Development Partnership, team members personally led projects that brought over 4,000 new jobs and $375M of new investment to the Commonwealth of Virginia.  In addition to public practice experience, our private sector work includes experience with site selection consulting, most notably leading a nationally-known manufacturing company in a comprehensive site search to locate a new east coast distribution facility.  

From program development to closing deals, Head Down Strategies has the background to help clients succeed.
