NJ’s Business Action Center Aims to Convince Execs They’ve Got a Friend in Trenton

Trenton, NJ, February 8, 2013 — NJBIZ’s Beth Fitzgerald reports on the New Jersey Business Action Center (BAC), which was created by the Chris Christie administration to reach out to businesses considering moving to New Jersey or expanding here — and to intervene when discouraged companies consider pulling up stakes.

It is part of the administration’s Partnership for Action, which so far has worked with companies to attract or retain 67,000 jobs, according to Catherine Scangarella, marketing director for the BAC.

“We are the one-stop shop for the business community, and we use all our resources to bring all state resources to bear” to stimulate business investment, said Lauren H. Moore Jr., deputy executive director of the BAC, during a meeting with NJBIZ.  

Besides the BAC, the Partnership for Action, led by Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno, includes the state Economic Development Authority, which provides loans and tax incentives to companies, and Choose New Jersey, an independent nonprofit that recruits businesses to move here.

Guadagno is well known as a highly visible member of the administration who meets with companies, speaks to business groups and often ends such engagements by giving out her mobile phone number.
