Deputy Commerce Secretary Carroll to leave for Biotech Center post
Raleigh, N.C. —
Dale Carroll, North Carolina Deputy Secretary of Commerce, is leaving his commerce position to take the Biotech Center job. Carroll told the Business Journal of the Greater Triad he is taking the job to move back to his full-time home in Asheville. The Biotech Center’s western office is located on the Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College campus. The office serves 25 western counties.
Carroll joined the Commerce Department in 2009 as an appointee of then Gov. Bev Perdue. Before that, he had worked for 12 years as chief executive of AdvantageWest, an economic development partnership serving 23 counties in western North Carolina. He also worked in a variety of roles for Carolina Power & Light.
Carroll plans to start his new job in mid-April. The move comes amid uncertainty over the Biotech Center’s budget. Gov. Pat McCrory’s proposed budget slashes $10 million from the Biotech Center’s $17.2 million annual appropriation.
