Mulally, President and CEO of Ford Motor Company, will be traveling to Louisville to speak at the
event, which takes place Tuesday, March 15, 2011. Mulally will discuss the Ford
story and how its team returned the company to profitability during the recent
economic crisis. Remember: Ford was the only major American car manufacturer to

Interesting article on Forbes.com this month. We know population trends indicate that individuals are migrating out of mega-cities into communities with higher qualities of life (something we pride ourselves on here in Louisville). As Forbes notes:
"In the course of the next 40 years, the biggest gainers won't be behemoths like New York, Chicago and Los Angeles, but less populous, easier-to-manage cities that are both affordable and economically vibrant… Over the past decade, the biggest migration of Americans has been to cities with between 100,000 and 1 million residents.”
Louisville is poised to greater benefit from this trend – in fact, we already are.

The latest from Eileen Pickett, GLI’s Senior Vice President for Economic and Community Development:
We’ve known for a long time that the logistics and
distribution sector is central to Louisville’s
economy. And we’ve known that this
community is good at logistics
– if you need to get something from here to there, Louisville is the place to do it. It’s rather nice though, to have the rest of
the world acknowledge this strength.
I draw your attention to the current issue of Fortune magazine (the Oct 18th issue – the one with Oprah on the cover)
pages 32 and 33.
