Columbia is a city of 120,000 people in a county of 175,000 residents in Central Missouri, and is home to the University of Missouri and a plethora of expanding companies.

The Site Selection team recently caught up with Bernie Andrews, executive vice president of Regional Economic Development Inc. Columbia (REDI) and the 2017 Missouri Professional Economic Developer of the Year, and asked him a few questions.
