The New Mexico Experience was launched in early 2019 by Coach Greg Jackson, co-owner of the Jackson Wink Academy in Albuquerque. The New Mexico Partnership is designated by the State of New Mexico to be the single-point-of-contact for locating and expanding a business anywhere in the state. Lt. Governor/PhD/Coach Howie Morales has many duties and passions, but chief among them is economic development. He he sits on the State Board of Finance, New Mexico Border Authority, New Mexico Children’s Cabinet, Community Development Council, Military Base Planning Commission, Mortgage Finance Authority, New Mexico Spaceport Authority, and New Mexico Youth Alliance.

His fighters, which include Jon Jones, Holly Holm, Carlos Condit, and over a hundred others, fight at international venues from Australia to Russia, Madison Square Garden to T-Mobile Arena, for UFC, Bellator, Lion Fight and other professional MMA leagues. The fights are highly publicized and televised around the world and Coach Jackson is at the center of it all, and so is New Mexico thanks to Coach’s New Mexico Experience.
“I am extremely humbled, but also extremely excited to have Lt. Governor Howie Morales and the New Mexico Partnership in our corner as we promote all things New Mexico to the world,” said Coach Greg Jackson. “In addition to Jon and Holly, we have a winning team here from across the state in the New Mexico United, Taos Ski Resort, FARMesilla, Real Time Solutions, and the Albuquerque Dukes.”
“As Lt. Governor, my mission is to improve the lives of all New Mexico children and families, and we get there by building a sustainable economy with stronger schools in all of our 33 counties,” Lt. Gov. Howie Morales said. “As a coach myself, I know the value of working together to achieve shared goals, and with the New Mexico Partnership and Coach Jackson’s help, we will continue to demonstrate to the world why people should live, learn, play, and invest in New Mexico.”
“Coach Jackson gets it. Coach built his successful business here, and he knows that hundreds of others have also found New Mexico to be the perfect place to build their businesses,” said Tim Nitti, CEO of the New Mexico Partnership. “Partnering with Lt. Governor Morales and Coach Jackson to sell New Mexico together is definitely a winning combination.”
“At New Mexico United we have always talked about making a bigger economic pie by bringing capital and resources into our state.

I think we are starting to feel a positive shift in New Mexico and this effort will add even more wind to our sails.”

We are looking forward to supporting him as he builds upon this initiative to show people what an amazing state New Mexico is and all the fantastic experiences that it has to offer.”
