Gilberto ‘Gil’ Salinas is founder of GilSalinas Ecodevo Concepts LLC and a nationally-recognized economic developer who has worked in an array of projects with a focus on Smart Economic Development.

As the Chief Strategy Consultant, Gil works with nonprofits, government entities and private enterprises to develop customized economic development strategies. His expertise is strategy development with an eye on achieving success, from the smallest organizations or companies seeking their niche to the larger entities considering a customized plan for competitiveness.

Gil leads the consulting firm from a position of knowledge base and being nimble, two crucial assets in the everchanging world of economic development.

“Practicing smart economic development is about importing money into a particular community or region through the attraction and development of forward thinking companies.”

In his prior role, Gil led economic development in the Brownsville-Matamoros Borderplex, an emerging binational region of 1.2 million on the Texas-Mexico border.

He has worked in regional economic development efforts and participated in international trade missions led by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and former-Gov. Rick Perry, which resulted in major capital investments for the Lone Star State and ultimately naming Texas the best state in the U.S. for investment in multiple media rankings.
