Susan Cudahy – New CEO of the Nanaimo Economic Development Corporation (NEDC)

There’s a lot of excitement and optimism in the air after Susan Cudahy’s first 30 days as CEO of the NEDC. The NEDC has been formed to allow the business community to move forward with economic development plans at an arms-length from the Nanaimo’s city government. Economic plans will be made in-line with the vision of the city, but at the speed of business – not the speed of government!

The NEDC is basically a sales and marketing organization and Nanaimo is its product.

  • Priorities for the NEDC include:
  • Rebranding Nanaimo
  • Developing a clarity of vision for all stakeholders
  • A new downtown hotel to allow the conference centre to attract more business.
  • Attracting new carriers and new destinations for Nanaimo’s airport – Calgary being a top priority.
  • Re-establishing a fast ferry service, downtown Nanaimo to downtown Vancouver
  • Attracting a larger commercial and industrial tax base to take the pressure of the residential tax base.
  • Developing a “concierge philosophy” in City Hall. i.e. a customer service approach that gives the message – “Your business is welcome here”.

Testimonials

I am a happy repeat client. Love Real Estate Group sold my two previous houses selling/buying and a lot purchase within a few years. She had lots of patience, listened to me and helped me figure out what do I want and what is the best for me. She was trying to find a real home for me and was not a just rush to push me to buy and move on type. I had a small budget to buy a lot to build on and Love Real Estate Group was an awesome negotiator. I went through many hurdles with these 3 sales and purchases. Every time I had an issue, Love Real Estate Group helped me out and I was able to carry on to get my home. Love Real Estate Group are not simply selling or buying a house for me, They made my dreams come true and can make yours come true as well. They are my tailor-fit realtors.

When I decided to sell my home in Cedar by the Sea last April, I asked Love Real Estate Group to list it. Within a week, I had offers and a purchaser. Next, Love Real Estate Group showed me a number of potential residences that could meet my needs. Within three weeks, I was very interested in buying a townhouse, made an offer and it was accepted. I was very impressed with Love Real Estate Group’s manner in which they dealt with me. Their advice, professionalism and prompt service were especially appreciated. I would highly recommend these Ladies to others if they are seeking either to sell or buy a home. Thanks again Love Real Estate Group.
