Site-selection Consultant: Amazon HQ2 is a ‘Once-in-a-Generation Opportunity’

As Amazon continues its wide-ranging selection process for a new, 50,000-employee headquarters, consultant John Boyd has had a busy week.

The head of The Boyd Company, a Princeton N.J.-based firm that helps companies like AT&T, Boeing and PNC Bank pick the most ideal sites for their offices, has given statements to the Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, the Baltimore Sun — and the list goes on.

Take a wild guess what the outlets have been asking him about. That’s right: Boyd has been riffing over an array of metros as possible sites of Amazon’s HQ2 project: South Florida, Atlanta, North Carolina’s Triangle Park. Boyd stresses he’s mentioned Pittsburgh and Philly as prime contenders to the media thought it hasn’t been included.
