Annie is a true leader in Minnesota and economic development. I am confident that she will rise to the top as one of the top ED professionals in the State. In addition, she is a wonderful person to work with and be around.
“Decklan Group has proven themselves to be one of our company’s greatest assets. They leave no stone unturned and deliver a value that far exceeds their cost. We expanded our facility, implemented educational classes for our employees, and added new equipment with Decklan Group paving the way. We invested in their expertise and they have shown us a return in excess of 1000% on our money. 1000% ROI may sound like an exception, however, if you speak to their other clients, you’ll find out it is not the exception, it is the norm.”
Annie and Tim have really helped us navigate the sometimes confusing and overwhelming government rules and regulations. We worked with them to submit and receive our SBA 8(a) Certification, and they have provided us with tools and resources to grow our business that we never would have found otherwise.
“We had been hesitant to move forward with social media because we didn’t have the time or knowledge to do it properly- since hiring Decklan Group, not only has our business increased, but we receive compliments from our customers on a weekly basis about promotions and items they see on Facebook and Twitter. Their knowledge and creativity has helped our business grow.”
“We had the pleasure working with Decklan Group from the moment we decided we needed a new location for our building. Not only did they help us find a site, but they handled the land negotiation, city applications, wetland delineation and were able to identify three different incentive programs which provided us over $1.3 million in financing to help us get our project done. They’re involvement saved us many headaches, and allowed us to focus on what we do best; running our business. We highly recommend involving them from the get-go when you’re thinking about expanding or growing your business. Annie is the master of helping herd the cats. Getting government agencies to all get into step in one direction is an art.”
“We started working with Decklan Group when we were conceptualizing our new building. Not only were they able to work with the City and County to get us nearly $100,000 in tax abatement, they have also worked with the state to get us nearly $50,000 to train our employees. They also took the time to review some new marketing channels we had been neglecting and their suggestions have already yield results above our expectations. Both Annie and Tim’s knowledge of available programs, incentives and innovative marketing have helped our company grow efficiently and profitably. Their services are an exceptional value.”
Tim Dolan has been a great asset to Granite Shores in Elk River MN navigating us through the process of local government while caring for the overall result of all main street businesses in Elk River. I highly recommend Tim for integrity, expert advice and of course achieving expected results when hired. Decklan Group has been paramount in our success and continued business growth for Granite Shores.
I highly recommend the Decklan Group for your business. As an Elk River City Councilmember, I had the pleasure of working with Annie Deckert for several years while she worked in the Economic Development Department. She was always forthright and professional and she often came up with innovative ideas. Since forming the Decklan Group, Tim Dolan and Annie have assisted companies in obtaining financing and with other business planning. Three significant forgivable loans were recently awarded to Decklan Group clients, largely due to the efforts of and presentation by the Decklan Group.
