The Morning Call, Sunday, July 30, 2006
Story by Jeanne Bonner profiles Ray Suhocki in his role as president of the Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corp. (LVEDC) since 2000. Suhocki retired from LVEDC earlier this month. During his term as LVEDC president, the region prospered and was responsible for 35 percent of all new jobs created in Penna. There were 38,000 new residents and lower home prices that lured people from New York and New Jersey. As a result, the LVEDC's mission widened and although it continues to champion regionalism, it now also provides a number of services to existing companies, as well as prospects. Suhocki states that making a name for the Valley was always the primary focus. Suhocki was named president of LVEDC, after retiring from PPL in 1999. Among his future plans is a trip to India with DeSales faculty and students in January 2007, as part of the university's ongoing globalization efforts.
