Chandler Mayor Jay Tibshraeny last week was honored by the Greater Phoenix Economic Council for his leadership in helping increase the region’s economic competitiveness and create a more diversified economy.

In awarding him its Outstanding Regional Contribution award, the GPEC cited Tibshraeny’s assistance in the successful recruitment to Chandler of General Motors, Continuum Nationstar Mortgage and many other organizations that has resulted in more than 4,800 jobs for the Chandler area and propelled economic prosperity for the surrounding region.

“Mayor Tibshraeny has expanded the region’s technology sector with his steadfast leadership and business savvy,” GPEC President and CEO Barry Broome said. “Chandler’s innovative approach to economic development, and the entrepreneurial talent it recruits, is helping to make the greater Phoenix region this country’s next high-technology hub.”

Goodyear Mayor Georgia Lord was given the GPEC’s Distinguished Service Award.
