Introduction

RGJ provides management, business development strategies, and partnerships for individuals, businesses, and governmental entities to solve problems, create jobs, and support long-term economic development in rural communities.

Network Partners   

Our company operates with a team of professional managers, Network Partners, as its executive team to provide general, financial, marketing, and operations management across a variety of disciplines and industries.  Experts are added to the core team as needed to complete projects.

Most of our Network Partners are entrepreneurs and small business owners that excelled as senior executives for major corporations, not-for-profit organizations, and federal, state, and local governments.  We clawed and scratched our way to the top, had a good look around, and now we're back down to earth.  City life's been good to us, but it's time to get back to our roots in rural America. 

Together, RGJ and its Network Partners, form partnerships with private and public sector businesses, and individuals to craft a shared vision and business development strategy for each project, new business, or entrepreneur for whom it chooses to represent.  Careful planning, good management, and committed public and private partners sharing resources are keys to completing successful projects. 

Current Areas of Interest 

RGJ's current areas of interest reflect specific challenges in rural communities in North Carolina and South Carolina.  Meeting these challenges require innovative and creative 21st century solutions that positively impact a community's long term goals.  RGJ and its Network Partners  look forward to developing business strategies and projects that attract entrepreneurs and boost economic development.  Together everyone achieves more.  We get it done.


Our Values

 

 

RGJ enjoys working with entrepreneurs with creative ideas to solve problems in rural communities.  We like straight forward conversation, honest people, and fair deals with our partners and our clients.    We gravitate toward people, ideas, services, and products that given time, human and financial resources and a business development strategy will produce viable commercial enterprises that create jobs, protect the environment, foster interdependence, and broaden the concept of community.

 

 “We’re making a living and getting a good night’s rest.”
