At FAR Lane, we wear many hats; economist, strategist, consultant, innovator.
Our team of versatile and talented professionals combine years of expertise in the fields of regional development, spatial economics, economic development, and corporate strategy.
Fun and a little bit irreverent, we thrive in collaborative environments, where we work side by side with our clients to produce tangible outcomes for every project.
