Business Development Team

Tecumseh has had a strategic focus on economic development for many years, because that’s what the business community has demanded. In fact, the city’s Economic Development Department originated out a five-year pledge from the business community in 1995 to start an organization focused on the needs of business. Since that time, the department has grown to a staff of three, which in a community of 8,500 is a tremendous testimonial. The Economic Development Department is led by Paula Holtz who has been in the business of helping businesses succeed for over 15 yrs.

Success Stories

Over the years, many Tecumseh businesses have spawned other successful ventures and incubated entrepreneurs. This entrepreneurial spirit is evident in the filled storefronts in downtown Tecumseh and in our diverse manufacturing base. Successful businesses choose to locate in Tecumseh due to the proactive business climate and the high quality of place, a strong component of our economic development efforts.
