HOUSTON HITS 600,000 NEW JOBS GOAL

The Greater Houston Partnership works to make Houston one of the world’s best places to live, work and build a business. Opportunity Houston is a program designed to support aggressive economic development marketing and lead generation.

In 2005, the Greater Houston Partnership, led by the Partnership’s Board of Directors and Campaign Chair Drayton McLane, developed an aggressive, strategic plan to help the Houston region.

By the end of 2015, Opportunity Houston pledged to hit key benchmarks such as creating 600,000 jobs and increasing foreign trade by $120 billion.

On October 17, 2014, the Houston region surpassed the 600,000 job goal. This is one year ahead of schedule and despite the Great Recession.
