Greg Prestemon, O’Fallon resident of more than 24 years, knows a thing or two about St. Charles County’s workforce.
As the chief executive officer and president of the EDC Business and Community Partners of St. Charles County, Greg oversees business incubation, small business finance and marketing programs – all of which have been recognized at a regional, state and national level and helped businesses grow.
“When a company is looking to grow or expand, the first question they ask is about the workforce,” Greg said. “Community colleges are in that perfect position to help people get prepared for good jobs.”
He has known all four presidents at St. Charles Community College and works along side the institution closely.
“I’d like SCC to continue doing what they’ve been doing. The partnerships that the community college has with businesses have already born fruit and I’d like to see more of the same,” he said.
According to Greg, the communication between colleges that provide workforce training and the business community has to be spot on at all times. SCC impacts businesses related to the EDC by helping them find qualified, productive, talented workers.
When asked what he thinks has changed most about SCC throughout the years, he said the energy level continues to rise.
“Community college is a key ingredient of the success of a local economy,” he said.
