Tampa Bay Ambassador, Chuck Egerter, Eagle Datagistics
If Chuck Egerter could describe the Tampa Bay region in three words, those words would be: Young. Vibrant. Growing.
“Since relocating Eagle Datagistics to downtown St. Pete in 2011, our annual revenues have more than doubled and we went from 10 employees to 22,” Egerter says. “On top of that, the quality of life improvements have made my employees love coming to work.” Egerter goes on to say, “The young, eager, creative talent we are trying to attract – both inside and outside of the region – wants exactly the lifestyle St. Pete has to offer.” Click to read more.
