What a Greenville business executive could contribute more to the UNC system’s Board of Governors and the UNC System’s 17 universities is his value of efficiency. How he has displayed efficiency is through supporting the consolidation of state controlled ECU Physicians Group and Vidant Medical Group. How he can display efficiency is through the passage of two initiatives. One is moving consolidating the UNC system’s offices into one building.
