"I don't know how any company, big or small, makes the right decision on where to invest without the expertise of a site selection consultant like Next Move Group."
-David Modeen, Senior Director Lithium Ion Products, EnerSys

"Working with EnerSys on this project has been a true joy, and I thank them for choosing Next Move Group as their site selection consulting firm.  We analyzed 50 sites in 25 states before EnerSys chose to locate this project in Greenville, South Carolina.  I cannot praise the economic development team in South Carolina enough for their diligence in working this project."
-Chuck Sexton, CEO, Next Move Group, LLC

"Since Chuck Sexton joined Next Move Group two years ago, he has taken our site selection business to a new level.  Every time I turn around he is adding a new manufacturing client to our site selection practice.  His work ethic is not only helping Next Move Group grow, it is also helping the American economy grow by helping manufacturers expand across America on sites that are ready to go.  We will have more site selection announcements soon thanks to Chuck's hard work.

Additionally, I want to see Chuck Sexton leverage the expertise he uses to site manufacturing projects to also help communities prepare good sites, without good sites, our economy as a whole will stall and local economies will have trouble creating growth.

Lastly, at Next Move Group, I am more interested in our mission than simply one project at a time.  Our mission is to support the economic development profession.  The economic developers in South Carolina know how to work a project!  I am pleased to see EnerSys locate in Greenville, South Carolina, where they truly know what they are doing."
