Since the Partnership began, the region has seen a radical transformation in economic development. Growth Strategies Organization's Ross Boyle sums it up in the Partnership strategic plan by saying, "[The Partnership] has contributed to the transformation of the Nashville region from a minor-league Southern to a major-league national community." Milestones of the program's success include:
- Population growth of the region from 53rd in the United States to 38th.
- Income growth of the region from 138th in the United States to 49th, moving the region from 5 percent below the U.S. median household income average to 7 percent above it.
- Successful landing of major brand-name corporate relocations, including Nissan North America, Dell Computer, HCA, Caterpillar Financial, Ford Motor Credit and more than 350 other successful relocations.
- Success in bringing manufacturing operations to Middle Tennessee and working in close partnership with TVA to successfully close those deals. Projects in which the Partnership collaborated with TVA include the Dell relocation, IBP, major expansions at Nissan and Saturn, Bridgestone/Metalpha's location in Clarksville, and numerous others.
