Edward Lee McCallum, Jr.
We regret to share that Ed McCallum, a partner in McCallum Sweeney Consulting, passed away on September 8th — a great loss to all in the economic development field and to the many companies he assisted in their site selection work. Ed was a long-time friend and contributor to Area Development magazine, served on our Editorial Advisory Board, and was a featured presenter at several of our Consultants Forum conferences. His kind and generous spirit will be missed. We offer our sincere condolences to his family and to his colleagues at McCallum Sweeney Consulting.

Condolences may be made on line at Mackey Mortuary.
