Economic strategies: Creating a winning culture

Joe Max Higgins, jr., has never coached football, but he has a winning record when it comes to making economic development deals, with a playbook and trophy-like examples to back it up.

Higgins, chief executive office of Golden Triangle Development Link in Columbus, Miss., has gained national attention for his no-nonsense approach to economic development after appearing on CBS’ 60 Minutes earlier this year. CBS reported that Higgins has brought 6,000 jobs to the Golden Triangle in Eastern Mississippi since 2003.
