A Catalyst for Growth

The Gallatin Economic Development Agency works to ensure Gallatin’s prosperity by serving as its catalyst for economic growth through leadership, aggressive marketing, local, regional and state partnerships, education and professionalism.

The Agency is the business recruitment, retention, and expansion organization for our community. Our staff is guided by a five-person Board of Directors who shape the EDA’s strategies and work plan as we strive to create job opportunities and investment for our city.

The EDA is the contact for the City of Gallatin for all business and industry prospects. As part of the Nashville Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA), much of our work revolves around regional partnerships. In working with the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development, the Nashville Chamber of Commerce’s Partnership 2020, the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) and other regional groups, we focus on our target industries of corporate and regional headquarters, data centers, call centers, light manufacturing, front office projects and retail development. The EDA works in concert with private developers from all sectors as our tremendous residential growth provides more and more retail, front office  and various service industry opportunities. The EDA also works with Gallatin’s Industrial Development Board to develop and market industrial property.

With a growing population and booming economy, the Gallatin Economic Development Agency continues to lead the city’s aggressive efforts to generate quality investment in our community and provide quality employment opportunities for our citizens.
