The city of Surprise applauds Economic Development Director Jeanine Jerkovic on being named one of Arizona Business Magazine’s 2021 “Most Influential Women in Arizona Business.”

Jerkovic’s work as the city’s Director of Economic Development attracts businesses to Surprise that provide economic stability, local jobs, and places to shop, dine and play! The department also manages the award-winning AZ TechCelerator business incubator. 

Under Jerkovic’s leadership, the city has seen a Costco Warehouse, Amazon Distribution Center and Iris USA Headquarters locate in Surprise. 

In May 2019, the Arizona Association for Economic Development recognized her as Economic Developer of the Year.
