NC Chamber Foundation Names Director of Institute of Workforce Competitiveness
Vincent Ginski to lead and develop the NC Chamber Foundation’s long-term strategy and policy on workforce and talent-related issues
RALEIGH, N.C. – The NC Chamber Foundation has named Vincent Ginski director of workforce competitiveness. A U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation Talent Pipeline Management Fellow, Ginski will lead the organization’s Institute for Workforce Competitiveness and develop the long-term strategy and policy on workforce and talent-related issues.
Prior to joining the NC Chamber Foundation, Ginski served as vice president of talent and strategic initiatives at the Gaston Business Association where he launched the Talent Partnership of Gaston County, which has been recognized nationally and statewide as an innovative solution trailblazing a new era of workforce development.
The NC Chamber Foundation launched the business-driven Institute of Workforce Competitiveness in 2022 in response to the urgent workforce needs of the state’s employers and to focus on future talent supply for the state. North Carolina, and the nation, face workforce challenges, changes, and opportunities, and the states that successfully address these issues will be best positioned for economic competitiveness.
Under Ginski’s leadership, the Institute for Workforce Competitiveness will advance talent outcomes by deploying Talent Pipeline Management for key industries across North Carolina, build leadership capacity to develop and implement transformative workforce solutions and partnerships, and identify policy innovations to close the people and skills gap.
“As North Carolina competes globally for job growth and investment, education and workforce are the linchpin to continued success and increasing prosperity across all corners of the state,” said Meredith Archie, president of the NC Chamber Foundation. “I am thrilled to have Vincent on board to drive innovative talent and workforce solutions. Nationally recognized for his work, Vincent is a change agent in the workforce development arena with a passion for collaboration and a focus on delivering measurable results to both businesses and job seekers.”
Working with the NC Chamber Foundation President, Ginski will also provide counsel to the NC Chamber on education and talent public policy issues, as well as evaluate and update Vision 2030 to reflect goal achievement and the changing North Carolina landscape.
