She works closely with senior management by providing support in the area of labor statistics and location advisory. Eleanor uses statistical and spatial analysis to aid clients in identifying key demographics, labor, real estate and other economic conditions throughout the site selection process.
Eleanor is involved in all aspects of a site selection project. She works closely with SSG’s internal GIS team to run demographic reports to better assess labor force and occupational trends. Her relationship with workforce resource groups including Economic Development agencies across the country and internationally is critical to collecting important data that is not available in traditional databases. She compliments her quantitative research with her qualitative abilities by conducting workforce interviews with local employers. Through these interviews Eleanor identifies potential workforce strengths and weaknesses and can better assess long-term talent availability and pinpoint market wages. In addition to her demographic and workforce assessments, Eleanor assists the real estate team with building research and validating key real estate metrics. She is instrumental in organizing site visits to ensure clients are meeting with local community leaders, workforce experts to discuss labor availability, and real estate tours meeting the clients building requirements.
Eleanor has a background in commercial real estate research, including reporting on the DFW office, industrial, retail, and capital markets. Eleanor holds a Spanish degree from Miami University in Ohio.
