Myrtle Beach EDC to offer NESA exec its top job

The executive committee of the Myrtle Beach Regional Economic Development Corp. voted unanimously Monday morning to offer the organization’s chief executive officer job to Jim Moore, director of business development at the North Eastern Strategic Alliance.

EDC board chairman Fred Richardson wouldn’t say how much Moore will be offered, but he said the salary package will be structured like the one for Brad Lofton, the EDC’s former CEO.

Lofton left the agency in September to take an economic development job in middle Georgia.

At the MBREDC, he was paid a base salary of $123,000 plus a $711 per month car allowance and could earn a 20 percent bonus, depending on meeting certain performance goals including the number of jobs created.
