July 12, 2019: Brighton, MI : Sara Jo Shipley —don’t call her Sara :) — has joined ASTI Environmental’s Brownfield Redevelopment Group and brings a wealth of experience with her.  Most recently, Sara Jo was the Economic Development Director at Ypsilanti Township, and  has also led brownfield redevelopment teams for the City of Kalamazoo and the Northern Kentucky Area Development District since 2012.  Most importantly, she learned how to grow and foster client relationships as a mixologist at Fries Café in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Under the direction of ASTI President Tom Wackerman, ASTI has obtained more than $330 million in Incentives (Brownfield Tax Credits, Grants, TIF, OPRA, Loans, NEZ) for Ashley Capital, ASH NYC (Siren Hotel), Bay City Hospitalities LLC, Brass Aluminum Forging, City of Adrian, City of Kentwood, Foundation Hotel (one of Time Magazine’s Greatest Places 2018), Grand Traverse County, Marwood Holdings LLC, and Oakland County the past 10 years and Incentives has evolved into ASTIs competitive differentiator.  The addition of Sara Jo is expected to accelerate that growth exponentially.
