About Us

About-Us

 

Dean Whittaker, an economic development and real estate practitioner fascinated by emerging technologies, founded Whittaker Associates in 1987. By merging his professional expertise and his passion for technology, Dean could provide something other firms didn’t: hard-to-get company data.

By applying proprietary analytic methods, Whittaker Associates transforms this data into richer business knowledge. We bring meaning to information to help you achieve your business, real estate, and economic development goals
