Investor Testimonial

Eli Lilly and Company

“About a year ago, Lilly announced our plans to build in Concord, NC. Since then, we have had a great experience becoming a part of Cabarrus County. I recently learned that Concord doesn’t have a Main Street; instead, the city has Union Street, which is fitting as Concord has a history of bringing people together and reflects our experience within the community today. The partnerships we have between public, private and non-profit sectors are all extremely positive. Leaders on both sides are excited to work together, and they do it very well. Concord is a great place to live and work, and Lilly strives to make communities where we live and work better places, and for a community like Concord, this isn’t hard to do.”

– Rebecca Hammel, Sr. Director HR, Concord Manufacturing Site
