Kat Lallo a certified Business Retention and Expansion Coordinator (BREC) thru the Business Retention and Expansion International organization (BREI), is passionate about creating economic growth opportunities to enhance the quality of life for Converse residents. 

The Converse EDC's Business Retention and Expansion (BRE) Program uses business visits, events and research to learn about our local business practices, future plans, and current challenges. When we are able to identify when a business needs help, we connect them to local or state resources.  Our local businesses know they can count on us! 

Studies show that 76 percent of new jobs are created by existing local businesses. On average, only about 15 percent of new jobs are created by new, external businesses.  Our BRE team wants to make sure our local businesses grow successfully, able to create and retain investment and jobs in Converse. Local businesses, please contact your EDC for a BRE visit.
