WA Analytics

WA Analytics is the research services arm of Whittaker Associates, Ltd. which conducts various market research and data entry projects for our clients.

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.

"During my 30+ years as an economic development professional, I have engaged Whittaker Associates to help me identify prospects and generate in-depth research. Whittaker consistently delivers these items in exceptional manner."
