Members of the Killeen Economic Development Corporation and the city’s chamber of commerce know what industries they want to attract to the city. That vision relies on aligning economic development efforts with the research planned and underway at Texas A&M University-Central Texas.
“We will continue to pursue leads, which come through the state, for which we qualified,” said John Crutchfield, executive director of the Killeen Economic Development Corporation. He is also the president and CEO of the Greater Killeen Chamber of Commerce. “Resources permitting, we will focus on defense, information technology, transportation/logistics and business services because research indicates they are a good match for this community.”
