A Johns Creek economic development corporation – Johns Creek Advantage – last week announced that JCA had raised $1,453,000 in private and public pledge “investments” that will fund the organization through 2017.

JCA noted that this amount is 116% of the $1,250,000 goal.

The “Victory Celebration,” held at Country Club of the South in Johns Creek, was attended by nearly 100 private and public sector leaders who have supported the JCA campaign and who will be influential in carrying out the organization’s mission.

JCA leadership publicly thanked Country Club of the South for its generosity in hosting the event.

The program chronicled the evolution of JCA, highlighted JCA’s critical role as an economic driver, and included the formal introduction to the community of newly hired President and CEO Courtney Bernardi.

Speakers included (in program sequence) Neil Stevens, JCA Board Chair and Executive VP and COO of KeyWorth Bank; Tom Tate, JCA Board Chair-Elect and President of the law firm of Andersen, Tate & Carr; Mike Bodker, Mayor of the City of Johns Creek; Courtney Bernardi, JCA President and CEO; and Craig McCoy, JCA Immediate Past Chair and CEO of Emory Johns Creek Hospital.

In the coming months, Courtney Bernardi and her team at JCA will deploy campaign funds to ramp up JCA’s economic development program with primary goals of growing businesses and jobs in Johns Creek, stimulating capital investment, and sustaining the outstanding quality of life enjoyed by Johns Creek residents.

Johns Creek Advantage is a nonprofit economic development organization for the city of Johns Creek, Georgia.
