Dennis Fraise and Jason Hutcheson


Develop This! podcast is published weekly and explores topics related to transformational community leadership including economic development, non-profit engagement, organizational management, and policy development.  It is a candid conversation with veterans of the economic development profession along with inspiring interviews of today’s thought leaders.

Dennis is a progressive, yet seasoned economic development professional with an eclectic background as a small business owner, public speaker, and a perpetually optimistic big idea guy. He’s led not one, but two economic development organizations in setting Guinness World Records. A self-proclaimed meeting snob, Dennis is always willing to challenge the business as usual, status quo approach to getting things done.

Jason is a veteran of the economic development industry and holds the official CEcD designation to prove it.  He had the great fortune to serve as the President/CEO of the Greater Burlington Partnership where he was been part of the transformation of this Midwestern, industrial river town into one of Site Selection Magazine’s Top Micropolitans for economic development deal flow.
