At the heart of a “top group,” PRA colleagues work closely with economic development partners and others across the 10-county Pittsburgh region to successfully market southwestern Pennsylvania for business investment.

At its annual “Wins Day” event at the end of March, the Pittsburgh Regional Alliance (PRA) celebrated capturing 302 economic development deals – or “wins” – during 2013.  Now the celebrating continues as the PRA has just been named one of the U.S.’s top 10 economic development organizations by Site Selection, a leading area economic development/corporate real estate strategy publication. The PRA was the only top 10 group in the Northeast U.S., and this current recognition marks the sixth time in the last seven years that the PRA has been named as such.
