Preble County has become the 31st jurisdiction in the Greater Dayton Region to join the Business First! Program. 

“Preble County is excited to join The Business First! Program as we strive to strengthen our commitment to responding to the needs of our business community,” said Shawnda Combs, Director, Preble County Economic Development Department.  “This program will help Preble County foster relationships and establish communication with multiple partners.”

Business First!  uses a customer-oriented approach to link businesses with resources that help businesses stay and grow in the community.  Highly trained and motivated outreach specialists meet with individual business owners to learn more about each business and identify resources to assist the firm in succeeding in today’s competitive environment. 

The Business First! Team is a coordinated group of more than 100 economic, community, workforce development and government agencies that are ready to assist firms in meeting their corporate objectives.

Business First! is a prime example of multiple counties and jurisdictions working together to provide economic development resources for businesses,” added Montgomery County Commission President Judy Dodge.  “Montgomery County is proud to be one of the founding members of a program that strengthens our economy and grows jobs for our entire region.”
