C-Suite Survey results to be revealed at NJ Economic Policy Summit, May 21

May 14, 2013

The sixth annual New Jersey Economic Policy Summit will take place on Tuesday, May 21, at the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. The event will bring together key New Jersey stakeholders to review the results of the hallmark “C-Suite Survey” conducted by the Bloustein School. The survey targets senior executives from companies headquartered and/or deeply entrenched in New Jersey. It also gauges their opinions about the economy and their experiences doing business here. James W. Hughes, Ph.D., Dean of the Bloustein School, will present the survey findings at this event.

Founded in 2007, the New Jersey Economic Policy Summit has a single goal: to forge a shared vision for the state’s economic growth. The New Jersey Business & Industry Association (NJBIA), Rutgers University’s Bloustein School, and commercial real estate services firm Cushman & Wakefield, Inc. head the effort.

The Summit unites the Garden State’s business, educational and political communities in an effort to identify, understand and address challenges and opportunities for the future health of the state. Kevin McArdle, State House Bureau Chief, Townsquare Media New Jersey, will moderate an expert panel representing a variety of industries: Bernie Flynn, President and CEO of New Jersey Manufacturers (NJM); Janice Klostermeier, Executive Vice President & CFO of Emergency Medical Associates; Douglas Kuiken, President & CEO of Kuiken Brothers Company, Inc.; Robert Rudin, Vice Chairman of Cushman & Wakefield, Inc.; and Judith Spires, President & CEO of Kings Supermarkets. The program will also feature comments from Gil Medina, Executive Managing Director of Cushman & Wakefield of New Jersey, and Philip Kirschner, President of NJBIA.

The May 21 event will begin with registration and networking at 8:30 a.m., followed by the program from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., in the Bloustein School’s Special Events Forum, 33 Livingston Ave. in New Brunswick. Seating is limited; to register online, visit Events at www.njbia.org. The cost to attend is $25 per person.

Confirmed sponsors of the 2013 New Jersey Economic Policy Summit include Cushman & Wakefield, New Jersey Economic Development Authority, AT&T, Connell Foley, Microsoft, Verizon and IBEW Local 102.
