President of KSM Location Advisors, Katie Culp, appeared alongside Trevor Yager, president and CEO of Trendy Minds, and Murray Clark, partner at Faegre Baker Daniels, on last week’s Inside INdiana Business’ INsiders panel.
The INsiders offered perspective on topics ranging from holiday spending to a potential NFL franchise in Northwest Indiana. More notably, they provided insights on the changing real estate landscape in Indianapolis – specifically, the recent acquisition of Summit Realty Group by Colliers International. As the former leader of the national location advisory and incentives practice at Cassidy Turley, which merged with Cushman & Wakefield and then merged again with DTZ all in the span of one year, Culp knows a thing or two about the benefits of adding bench strength to a firm.
“Overall, I think it’s really good. I think it’s a sign of the times. And it’s not just tied to real estate,” Culp said.
As with the IEDC’s Regional Cities Initiative, also discussed on the show, the INsiders as a whole agree that positive things are on the horizon for Indiana’s business community.
Culp works alongside CEO Tim Cook at KSM Location Advisors to provide economic development and location advisory services to public and private companies across the United States.
