Bob Singer, a partner in the Greensboro office of Brooks Pierce, was recently named to the board of directors for the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina (EDPNC).
Singer is one of 17 business leaders from across the state appointed to the board, which will hold its first meeting on November 21.
“I look forward to working alongside the state’s top business leaders as we continue to drive job creation throughout North Carolina,” said Singer. “Our state has so much to offer to a wide variety of industries, and the EDPNC is dedicated to connecting businesses with the resources they need to thrive. Given Brooks Pierce’s reputation as a leader in business law, my new role as a board member is a great fit.”
The EDPNC is a nonprofit group created by state statute to oversee the state’s efforts in business and job recruitment and retention, international trade, tourism, film and sports development. Based in Cary, the partnership officially opened its doors in October, and has more than 200 potential economic development projects in the pipeline.
Singer has practiced in the areas of banking, mergers and acquisitions, public and private securities offerings, venture capital transactions, and general corporate matters since 1979. Singer maintains an active practice in the representation of banking organizations and the North Carolina Bankers Association, and provides securities and corporate advice to a number of publicly-traded corporations. He also advises the firm’s litigation practice in the defense of officers, directors, auditors and others in securities cases. Singer has been widely recognized for his success, having been listed for many years in several top legal guides: The Best Lawyers in America, Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business, and North Carolina Super Lawyers.
