About Henderson

In Good Company

Located in one of the top 10 states in which to do business – according to Chief Executive magazine – Henderson’s diverse economy continues to benefit from both its strategic location as well as its inclusion in the Las Vegas metropolitan statistical area.

Some of the nation’s best-known names in business have established facilities in Henderson – including Toyota Financial Services, Unilever, Barclays, Levi Strauss and Ocean Spray – as their leaders have recognized the pro-business environment Henderson offers. Premier hotel properties, such as Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort, and Green Valley Ranch Resort bolster an already-robust business community in Henderson.

PLANTING THE SEEDS OF COMMUNITY

Located adjacent to Las Vegas, Henderson made a name for itself in the 1990’s as the fastest-growing city in the nation. In fact, Henderson – known for its master-planned communities and high-quality of living – has been at the forefront of Nevada’s growth spurt, exploding from just 60,000 people in 1990 to currently over 300,000. That figure would make Henderson the 14th largest city in the state of California – larger than such cities as Irvine, Glendale and San Bernardino.

In addition, there are more than one million people in the workforce within a 45-minute commute shed of Henderson-area business parks. Henderson covers over 100 square miles of the southeast Las Vegas valley.
