Since taking office in 2011, Governor Nathan Deal has led Georgia to become the No. 1 state in the nation for business for five years in a row – a first in Georgia history – and helped create more than 675,000 private sector jobs. In the past six years, Georgia’s job growth has outpaced the national average while its population has jumped from 10th to 8th nationally.
During Governor Deal’s tenure, Georgia has become a global destination for companies in a wide range of industries, and under his leadership, Georgia has produced seven balanced budgets, maintained Georgia’s AAA bond rating and grown the Rainy Day Reserve Fund to more than $2 billion.
