Greg JoslinGreg Joslin’s background in economic development is a different aspect of the same goal he’s now pursuing as a commercial real estate broker.
“I really love being involved in shaping the community,” Joslin said, “to blend true economic development with job creation and politics and business.”
Joslin, 39, started his career at what was then known as the Arkansas Industrial Development Commission. He followed that with economic development at the Magnolia Chamber of Commerce and Entergy’s Teamwork Arkansas. Eventually he was promoted to customer service manager for 62,000 Entergy customers.
Last October, he left Entergy for Irwin Partners.
“When you get into this business, you suddenly look at the world through different glasses,” Joslin said. “Opportunity is all around you. It’s a whole new perspective for me.”
As a member of the 15th class of Leadership Greater Little Rock, he was a founding board member of Arkansas Committed to Education Foundation, which recently awarded computers and calculators to 3,000 schoolchildren statewide. He is a previous president of the board of Youth Home Inc. of Little Rock and currently serves on the boards of Our House and Leadership Greater Little Rock and on the Little Rock Air Force Base Community Council.
