A Bigger Part Of Our Community!
Recently Newhall Klein has had the honor of joining Southwest Michigan First. This economic development team prides itself on building amazing community, as well as raising the bar on education and job growth in our region of the state. We are so excited to dive into all of the fabulous amenities that this group has to offer, and to give back to our thriving community in new ways.
By joining the Council of 100, through Southwest Michigan First, we will be able to become a more integral part of the Kalamazoo workforce – and help the creative growth of our vibrant city.
We love these interesting facts about Southwest Michigan:
- 7 counties total
- 778,384 people live in those counties
- 56,421 of those people are college students
- 15,875 companies are headquartered here
- 9 higher education institutions/colleges are in the area
As a member of Southwest Michigan First, we will be able to connect with a pool of people and resources we were unable to tap into prior. This is a very exciting step for Newhall Klein, and we look forward to supporting the group’s vision:
“Southwest Michigan will be recognized as a robust, vibrant and successful region where emerging innovation, thriving talent and a collaborative culture generate the fastest growing economy in the country and one of the nation’s leaders in economic growth.”
NK loves Kalamazoo and Southwest Michigan, and we’re thrilled to be part of its growth and future success.
