Jared Lutz Joins Michigan Growth Advisors
KALAMAZOO, Mich., February 28, 2023 – Jared Lutz has joined Michigan Growth Advisors as a Project Manager working with companies on securing economic development incentive packages as they look to expand, consolidate, or relocate. Lutz was the Attraction and Research Director at Kalamazoo, MI-based Southwest Michigan First before joining Michigan Growth Advisors. In his new role, Lutz will continue to assist clients with business growth services.
Michigan Growth Advisors (MGA) helps clients obtain the public incentives that can bridge the gap between a project’s cost and financial viability. MGA provides solutions to businesses including understanding if a project is eligible for incentives and the value of those incentives to their company or project through local, state, and federal programs. With a collaborative approach to procurement, MGA proactively identifies and secures public incentives available to meet specific client needs.
“Jared is an expert in a growth-oriented service that requires a tremendous amount of knowledge of how a variety of government, marketplace, and workforce partnerships can benefit a company,” said Joe Agostinelli, Managing Director of Michigan Growth Advisors. “Our clients are going to realize the value of MGA through Jared because he has foresight on existing and evolving incentive programs. Knowing what programs apply and securing the most comprehensive benefits available can dramatically affect the viability and success of a project.”
“I am thrilled to provide answers to clients on their expansion project costs when sometimes they don’t even know what questions to ask,” said Lutz. “In many situations I am able to identify funding, rebates, and abatements that most companies have little or no idea are even available to them. When you can bring money to table, or save money from being spent, especially in our current economic climate, companies and communities grow.”
Lutz is a Board Member for the Kalamazoo County Brownfield Redevelopment Authority.
