The Virginia Growth and Opportunity (GO Virginia) initiative began in 2016 with the purpose of promoting economic and workforce development across the state. To accomplish this, nine regional councils have been formed across Virginia. Each council is made up of business, education and community leaders that will work together to serve and apply for state funds for their region.
Floyd Merryman, President & CEO of Sonny Merryman Inc., will serve on the Roanoke/Blacksburg/Lynchburg economic council.
“I’m honored to have been chosen to serve on the Roanoke/Blacksburg/Lynchburg economic council. Our area has a lot of potential for growth, and I’m excited to see what economic developments may be on the horizon with the help of the GO Virginia initiative. Attracting new industry as well as supporting existing corporate citizens with growth opportunities and assistance is paramount to the long term stability of our region.”
