Faculty member Anita Brown-Graham, who rejoined the School of Government in 2016, was named a Triangle Business Journal 2017 CEO of the Year for her leadership of North Carolina State University's Institute for Emerging Issues (IEI), where she served as director from 2007–2016. There, she led IEI’s work to build North Carolina’s capacity for economic development and prosperity. Each year, she and her colleagues worked with leaders across the state in business, government, and higher education to focus on issues important to North Carolina's future. Triangle Business Journal will honor 20 CEOs at a black-tie dinner May 19 at The Umstead Hotel & Spa in Cary.

Brown-Graham is a William C. Friday Fellow, American Marshall Fellow, and Eisenhower Fellow. In 2013, the White House named her a Champion of Change for her work at IEI, and the Triangle Business Journal named her a 2014 Woman in Business for her policy leadership in the state.
