Michael Mullis, President of JM Mullis, Inc., a corporate site selector, who worked with Fulton and Montgomery Counties in the past, toured the Region in September 2013. Mr. Mullis believes the Fulton Montgomery Region is a prime location for new businesses looking for a great New York location. Mr. Mullis noted, “There’s not a state in the union with a more diverse and knowledgeable workforce than New York. But businesses don’t realize the riches available in the Fulton Montgomery Region.”
