Erickson brings experience in international economic development, most recently having served as analyst and project manager with the Egyptian National Competitiveness Council where he advocated for and advised on competitive economic and business policies to improve the economic environment in Egypt. As business development officers, Battle and Erickson promote economic development and drive business growth in all sectors of the Kansas City, Missouri, economy, and ensure existing incentives help attract, retain and grow companies and jobs.

Moye most recently served as development coordinator with the Sunflower Development Group acting as liaison between Sunflower and local and state governments. He was instrumental in developing Jackson County’s real estate analysis group in his previous position as development incentive coordinator where he conducted financial analysis for business incentives and oversaw the tax incentive unit. In his new role as development services specialist, Moye coordinates with developers and businesses seeking tax incentives, leading them through the incentive process.
