Kirk Bradley, developer of MOSAIC and CEO of Lee-Moore Capital, was recognized as one of North Carolina’s most influential leaders in Business North Carolina’s (BNC) Power List 2022. In BNC’s first interview feature, a partnership with High Point University, Bradley met with President Nido Qubein to share his views on North Carolina’s economic development.
“Do your best to help everyone you can.”
This mantra is the motivation behind Bradley’s pursuit to better North Carolina’s communities and is a central theme of his interview with Qubein. A real estate development professional with deep roots in the state, Bradley shares his unique perspective on the strengths and weaknesses of North Carolina’s economy, and what can be done to achieve its full economic potential.
When asked about North Carolina’s future, Bradley discusses industries that have bolstered the economy – the university and community college systems, the military, and the life sciences – as well as those he believes will have a significant impact on growth. He predicts the emergence of automobile, semiconductor and gene therapy manufacturing will be key to the prosperity of the state.
Bradley is enthusiastic about North Carolina’s future yet recognizes areas for improvement. He believes in significant investment in developing and maintaining a strong and committed workforce. “It’s a challenge, and it won’t be easy,” he states, “but if we can master that, we’ll have a competitive advantage not only in the United States, but in the world.”
