The ECG Technical Solutions team provides tailored research, comprehensive GIS mapping, and top-notch marketing resources to businesses seeking to expand, relocate, or establish their presence in Georgia. Our data visualization services provide a unique and insightful dimension to the analysis, enabling businesses to view potential expansion locations from a fresh perspective and make informed decisions with added confidence. It is with this in mind that we welcome two new faces.

Prior to working with ECG, Morgan served as the Economic Research Manager and grant administrator at Savannah Economic Development Authority (SEDA) where she discovered her passion for economic development and supporting the various industries in the number one State for Doing Business – Georgia. 

Before joining ECG, Jon served as a GIS Manager and GIS Planner for the Northeast Georgia Regional Commission where he worked directly with local government staff, elected officials, and members of the public on a variety of projects. In addition, Jon served on the Georgia Association of Regional Commissions (GARC) Technology Committee and GARC GIS Committee where he worked on statewide projects and solutions.
