Loren Hill, Carolina Core Regional Economic Development Director
"Economic Development along the Carolina Core" -
In addition to talking about how ACEC/NC members can best interact with local economic development groups, Hill will review the Carolina Core, which is a 120-mile stretch of North Carolina along US Highway 421/future Interstate 685 -- going from Yadkinville through Winston-Salem/High Point/Greensboro and on to Fayetteville. It is an area not confined by traditional borders but instead by impressive assets that make the region a globally competitive market: four megasites which have more than 7,200 acres along with other impressive sites; 30+ colleges and universities with 250,000 students; and a talent pool of more than 2 million people.
Loren Hill began working for the Piedmont Triad Partnership on February 1, 2021, in the newly-created role of Carolina Core Regional Economic Development Director. PTP created that position to further enhance regional collaboration and to help attract new jobs and investment to central North Carolina. He had most recently served 20 years as president of the High Point Economic Development Corporation. Hill had also been a Marriott Hotel General Manager all across the U.S., a Greensboro Chamber executive, and a governmental affairs director for five local real estate trade associations.
