Columbia, S.C. – Parker Poe Consulting is pleased to announce the addition of Morgan Crapps as a consultant in Columbia. Morgan strengthens PPC’s Site Selection & Economic Development Division.
Morgan will work with corporate clients to find optimal locations for their entry, expansion, or relocation in North America. She also will negotiate and structure incentive agreements with state and local governments. She frequently advises companies on manufacturing, distribution, office, and development projects and has significant experience working with global businesses to facilitate foreign direct investment (FDI) in the United States.
Morgan previously worked for a midsize law firm as an attorney in the economic development and international arenas, where her practice focused on tax and incentives.* Prior to that, Morgan worked at the South Carolina Department of Commerce, both as a project manager in global business development and as senior manager of international strategy and trade. In these roles, she was responsible for recruiting companies from around the world to South Carolina and streamlining their investment projects to create jobs and bring investment to the state.
“Morgan brings a strong international background to Parker Poe Consulting, including relationships in some parts of the world where we have not been as active,” says Mark Simmons, leader of PPC’s Site Selection & Economic Development Division. “In addition, she has a unique understanding of how economic development gets done, both from the perspective of corporate prospects and state and local developers.”
“Parker Poe Consulting has a tremendously strong reputation as a valued partner for companies who need to seamlessly execute their investment projects – especially when it pertains to FDI,” Morgan says. “The expertise and collaboration within this organization are unparalleled and I am thrilled for the opportunity to join the PPC team.”
*Morgan is not a practicing lawyer and does not provide legal services.
