County Executive’s Economic Advisory Group

The County Executive’s Economic Advisory Group (CEEAG) is an informal group of business executives who have a strong sense of attachment to Montgomery County and are viewed as leaders by our community, both within the business and nonprofit sectors. The CEEAG is chaired by Jim Soltesz.

As partners in the economic vitality of the County, these leaders meet with the County Executive and senior leadership on a regular basis to:

  • Inform and advise government leadership on economic competitiveness issues;
  • Expand and strengthen partnerships between County government and businesses; and
  • Facilitate and promote economic priority projects.

The CEEAG identified three priority areas of critical concern to the County’s future and have formed committees to move them forward:

  • Business Competitiveness,
  • Infrastructure Connectivity, and
  • Business Climate.
