The Wilton Economic Development Commission (EDC) has released a video aimed at encouraging companies looking to relocate to Southwestern Connecticut to explore Wilton as their next place to call home. Themed “It’s Working in Wilton,” the 5-minute video focuses on Wilton’s access to transportation, proximity to Boston and New York, and access to a highly educated workforce. It aims to spotlight the benefits that Wilton offers to prospective and existing businesses and their employees.
The project is the counterpart to an earlier video completed by the EDC aimed at potential homebuyers, that highlights Wilton as a desirable place to live. It comes with the tagline, “Families are Fulfilled. Lives are Enriched.” Producing the two videos has been one of the primary goals of the current commission.
The corporate video features interviews with the leadership of some of Wilton’s corporate residents and developers who speak of their experiences in Wilton as their corporate home and dealing with the town. Among those interviewed were Bill Amalfitano (General Manager, ASML), Mark De Pecol (Principal, Senior Living Development, LLC), Kevin Kane (R&D Business Manager, Dorel Sports), Sean McDonnell (Principal, Health Care Affinity Group, Avison Young), and Jennifer Tombaugh (President, Tauck).
“We are thrilled to be able to share this video which perfectly captures what a great place Wilton is to live and work,” said Wilton’s First Selectman, Lynne Vanderslice. “Wilton appreciates its businesses and the support they provide to the community. We invite potential investors to come and learn more about how ‘It’s Working in Wilton.’”
In addition, the following individuals donated their services to the video: Drew Gumins, David O’Brien, Riverbrook Regional YMCA, Lynne Vanderslice, Robert Winsor and Jason Schuler. The video was produced by Adam Pemberton of Echo Brand Group.
