The EDCC press release stated:
Economic Development Achievement Award - Sandy Head, Montrose Economic Development Corporation (MEDC): The Economic Development Achievement Award was presented to Sandy Head the long-standing executive director for the MEDC. Her work to bring new, and expanding businesses, has contributed to the economic growth in Montrose, Colorado. Head has been instrumental in projects such as the re-plot at the Montrose Airport Industrial Park to provide the necessary land for the expanding Polystrand facility. MEDC’s support of Hansen Weatherport enabled the company to expand, increasing their employee base from eight to over 200 now employed by the company for their Western Slope operations. More recent examples include the retention of Montrose Forest Products and most notably, Ross Reels/Mayfly Outdoors. With the retention of Ross Reels, the Mayfly Outdoors investment in the creation of the Colorado Outdoor project is under way paving the way for substantial economic impact for Montrose
