GLS Founding Principal Didi Caldwell has been named one of the 50 Most Influential People by Greenville Business Magazine. The list highlights those who have made a significant impact shaping the business and community landscape of Greenville, S.C., the city where GLS is headquartered.
The magazine recognized Didi for her company’s help in producing $5.6 billion of announced capital investments and 5,300 new jobs since 2012. A review of her 2017 accomplishments included leading the site selection of a $400 million tissue plant; her election to serve as treasurer of the prestigious Site Selectors Guild Board of Directors; an interview with Reuters about Amazon’s HQ2 search that led to extensive nationwide coverage; and numerous speaking engagements at global and regional conferences.
Each year, Greenville Business Magazine selects the “50 Most Influential People” based on nominations from the community, news reports, and its own observations of the Greenville community.
