The Right Place adds more talent to their team

There is no place like home. And although Washington D.C. is not exactly Oz, for Megan Sall, that sentiment is pretty accurate.

Sall, the former City of Wyoming Downtown Development Authority Director, has joined The Right Place as a business development manager, leaving D.C. where she served as a program manager for the International City/County Management Association (ICMA).

"There is something about Grand Rapids," says Sall. "It's a smaller city, and there is a lot of opportunity to make a difference. In West Michigan, you can see change right before your eyes."

Sall's initial focus will be on business retention, helping existing businesses access more resources and achieve new successes. "The biggest opportunities are in manufacturing, which is making a comeback," says Sall. She uses the term "reshoring" to describe the migration of production coming back to West Michigan from elsewhere due to the demand for higher quality and the existing capacity to absorb more work due to the infrastructure that is already in place.
