Creating a Sustainable Economy for Southwest Virginia – William Wampler Oped

In the latest feature from The Roanoke Times, Delegate William Wampler shares his thoughts on the COVID-19 crisis and highlights business leaders that are planning new initiatives, adapting, implementing change, and finding a path forward.

“Consider the story of “The 1901 Group” — a growing tech company that established an Abingdon location in the Virginia Highlands Small Business Incubator in early March. The coronavirus hits and the economy starts dragging. Instead of scrapping the company’s expansion into Southwest Virginia, the 1901 Group team is digging in, making hires, and preparing for the future demand in IT services and remote working. 1901 Group is an example of how we are pivoting to focus on high-demand, high paying jobs in our region.”
