Avery County Economic Development



About Us

The Avery County Economic Development Committee is comprised of nine (9) committee members, our County Manager and a member of the Avery County Board of Commissioners. We are a diverse group of business specialists consisting of retired corporate executives, current CEO's & management professionals and entrepreneurs. Our career backgrounds range across the board from manufacturing, education, health care, utilities, retail and wholesale. Some of our members are Avery County natives with their family heritage going back multiple generations; other are expats from more northern states. Our diversity is our greatest strength.

We have two (2) primary goals, each sharing equal priority: (1) To insure the success, growth and retention of our current businesses. (2) To attract new commerce to Avery County.

Whether you are a sole proprietor, new or experienced entrepreneur, member of a site selection task force seeking a new or additional business site we are your “go to” one-stop referral source.

All of us who comprise the Avery County Economic Development Committee love and live by our county slogan—“Together…We are Avery County”. Please do not hesitate to contact us; it would be our pleasure to share our knowledge, experience and wisdom in assisting you in making your business vision a reality.
