On June 19th, 2012, St. Louis, Missouri's, Fox 2 News ran a story highlighting the effect of immigration on regional economic growth in St. Louis, after a study authored by Jack Strauss, an economist at St. Louis University, was released. Development officials in the region, such as the St. Louis County Economic Council, were interviewed as were prominent immigrant business people in St. Louis.
One of the business people interviewed for the story is NextGen's CEO Carmen Jacob.
Other interviewees included Martha Garcia Kampen of Kampen Marketing Consultants, and Anna Crosslin of the International Institute of St. Louis.
Thank you to Fox 2 News and Charles Jaco for recognizing the impact of immigrant business people on the St. Louis region's economic vitality!
