Former Democratic Gov. Bev Perdue has recently finished her teaching fellowship at Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government, and plans to launch an education consulting business from her home in Chapel Hill.
“I'm older, I've got probably 10 years of really robust kind of activity, and I'm very discerning about it is I want to choose to do with my time,” she said in a recent interview with Erik Spanberg of the Charlotte Business Journal. “So I have agreed to do some work with one company around education and technology. I'm setting up the company now.''
Perdue plans to work with a number of outside experts with the company that will be called Perdue Strategic Group. She is also working on a biography with two writers, Barlow Herget and Marion Ellis.
