utilized J.C. Burns and his group on several occasions
over the last twenty years. We have found that his research
is complete and on point, his recommendations address
the alternatives correctly, and each project is completed
on time. I am pleased to recommend J.C. Burns and his
group for any business consulting needs.
William T. Gallagher
Senior Vice President
I have worked with J.C.
Burns on perhaps thirty or more projects ranging over
the entire spectrum of business issues. In each project
he works diligently to be sure of success for those
he represents. He has the rare ability to see the big
picture while focusing on details. My recommendation
to those needing the best in business consulting services
is to retain J.C. Burns and Burns Development Group.

City of Batesville, Mississippi
"I have never worked with
a more effective economic development professional
in my whole career.
J.C. Burns is a businessman, turned developer. He understands
the needs of business and he has an unusual ability to
create teams that effectively deliver new jobs and extensive
capital investment. J.C. proved that he can deliver
with the Nissan Project. He led a competition that has
now delivered 5,000 new jobs and $1.0 billion in capital
J.C. Burns is a rare find."
Malcolm Portera, Chancellor
of Alabama System
“Under J. C. Burns’
leadership the Mississippi Development Authority was
named one of the top ten economic development agencies
in North America by Site Selection Magazine. Applying
that kind of vision and effectiveness to local and regional
economic development organizations will allow a community
to move ahead of its competitors and other groups vying
for the same business.”
Dr. David Cole
Itawamba Community College President
"J. C. Burns has the insight and
overcome the many hurdles and obstacles that make economic
