About TPMA

35 Years of National Consulting Experience

Thriving at the Intersection of Workforce, Education, + Economic Development.

For community champions who are loyal to improving local and regional economic outcomes, TPMA provides professional consulting services and delivers transparent insights to the complete workforce, education, and economic development ecosystem that allows them to move forward, together.

We Translate Data into Action.

TPMA was founded in 1989 around the idea of making workforce a major component of economic development. Without qualified talent, communities cannot thrive. We’ve grown since then, but our core approach remains the same. As a team of economic and workforce development experts and practitioners, we support communities’ business growth with talent development at the center of our strategy. 

TPMA does this by providing our clients with the ability to link workforce, economic, and community development research and planning efforts. We incorporate tangible strategies with performance metrics and identify resources for implementation, sustainability, and growth.
