Data Centers: Pulsing Your Business Through America’s Heartland

The Hoosier State is fast becoming a regional hub for data centers, where businesses find world-class electric and fiber infrastructure, strategic proximity to key cities and a well-trained workforce. To this, add incentives including attractive state sales tax exemptions for equipment and electricity, local property tax abatements and rate credits from us. Put it all together, and you’ve got a winning location for data centers.

Contact Ashley Savieo, CEcD, Director of Economic and Business Development

    • Northeast Indiana has shaped my education and career. I graduated from Purdue University and earned a graduate certificate from Indiana-Purdue University Fort Wayne School of Public & Environmental Affairs. In 2011, I earned the Certified Economic Developer (CEcD) designation from the International Economic Development Council.
    • I’ve been working in economic development for over a decade, with local experience in Allen County and Greater Fort Wayne, Inc., and state experience with the Indiana government. At Greater Fort Wayne, Inc. I developed our branded business retention and expansion program, led a team that prioritized investments for shovel-ready sites, public-private partnerships for spec development and the cultivation of relationships with real estate and consulting professionals. I have facilitated negotiations for companies such as General Mills, BAE Systems and General Motors.
    • I took a year long “sabbatical” from economic development to work for an international Tier 1 automotive supplier, VOSS Automotive, where I was the marketing communications manager. There, I developed the first marketing and communications strategy for the North American business unit. In late 2017, I took on an exciting new role: Mom. In the remaining free time, I volunteer for a handful of area nonprofits and am an active board member for Science Central, northeast Indiana’s regional hands on science center.
