We can also connect you with the Department of Economic and Community Development. Governor’s Account Executive, Brian Doyle, is always eager to help businesses in Maine. Brian has assisted and advocated for numerous businesses while staffing DECD’s Business Answers and Red Tape Hotline over many years. This long expertise means he is well versed in state and federal programs that can help Maine businesses succeed. And if he doesn’t have the solution at his fingertips, you can be sure he knows someone who does and will work with you until your problem is solved.

We also track legislative issues affecting business and share key information with our members via our newsletter.
