NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J., May 10, 2012 – The fifth annual New Jersey Economic Policy Summit will take place on Tuesday, May 22, 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. Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno has been invited as a guest speaker. Kevin McArdle, State House Bureau Chief, Townsquare Media New Jersey, will moderate an expert panel representing a variety of industries. Confirmed panelists include: Bernie Flynn, President and CEO of New Jersey Manufacturers (NJM) Insurance Group; Gil Medina, Executive Managing Director of Cushman & Wakefield of New Jersey; Dean Paranicas, President and CEO of the Healthcare Institute of NJ; Madeleine Robinson, CEO of LPS Industries; and Alan L. Rubino, CEO of New American Therapeutics.
