RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - Construction fatalities are up in 2014, leading the Department of Labor to work with its allies to produce a new public service announcement campaign to combat the spike.

As of the end of October, 14 people had lost their lives on North Carolina construction sites. That's double the seven who died during the same period last year, according to the Labor Department's November/December newsletter, Labor Ledger.

The newsletter reports that half of the deaths involved Hispanic workers.

The ad campaign will run through the end of the year and will focus on falls, carbon monoxide exposure, and more.

Builders Mutual Insurance Co. subsidized a $5,000 media buy. Univision is doing a 1 to 1 match on the ad buy.

The newsletter is available online at http://www.nclabor.com/news/ledger/14Nov_Dec.pdf

Tuesday, 09 December 2014 05:51

RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - The man who launched Missouri's business development corporation has been hired to lead North Carolina's new nonprofit entity charged with job development, sports and tourism marketing, and international trade efforts.

Christopher Chung begins his job as CEO of the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina on January 12.

“I am delighted and honored to join North Carolina’s campaign for economic growth, particularly at this pivotal time in the state’s approach to job creation and development,” said Chung in a statement. The 38-year-old is an Ohio native.

Serving as CEO, Chung launched the Missouri Partnership in 2007, which focused exclusively on recruiting new business, and he led the organization to be recognized by corporate executives and location advisors as one of the country’s best economic development programs. He was dubbed a “rising star” last year by Development Counsellors International, which named him among the industry’s “Top 40 Under 40.”

Under Chung’s leadership, the Missouri Partnership helped recruit 78 new corporate operations and more than 10,000 jobs and $1 billion in capital investment since 2010 – including major projects by IBM, international auto supplier Yanfeng USA, and North America's largest roofing manufacturer, GAF.

Previously, Chung managed $80 million in deal-closing incentives and other related economic development funds used to attract, retain and expand business in the state of Ohio.

Chung holds a degree in economics and Japanese from The Ohio State University, where he also completed significant post-graduate course work in public policy.
