The survey appeared in Area Development’s Fall 2011 Executive Summary issue in mid-September. As part of the report, Dallas earned the # 1 spot nationwide for metro areas.  According to Site Selection magazine,
"Dallas exemplifies these honors with an array of expansions and relocations." Inc. magazine named Plano-based Ambit Energy the nation’s fastest-growing private company in its annual business rankings. (8/2/2011)
