New CEO to lead Economic Development Partnership of NC

A 38-year-old economic developer from Missouri will replace a Triangle business executive at the helm of North Carolina’s new public-private partnership for job recruitment.

Christopher Chung will begin work as CEO of the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina on Jan. 12, Gov. Pat McCrory’s administration announced Monday. In 2007, Chung launched the Missouri Partnership, which is also mostly funded by state government with contributions from the private sector.
