Doug Rasmussen Featured in Area Development Magazine

Doug Rasmussen, Director in Duff & Phelps Site Selection and Incentives Advisory Practice, was recently featured in an Area Development Magazine Q2 2018 article, “The Art and Science of Assessing the Labor Market.” Doug provides his perspectives on how a company can be sure of choosing a location where its workforce needs are satisfied now and in the future.
