Carolina Partnership for Reform (CPR) announced today that Stephen Wiley has joined the organization as Executive Director. 

Wiley issued the following statement: “I first developed an interest in public policy because I believe that there are conservative solutions to the most pressing issues of the 21st century. Carolina Partnership for Reform has done critical work to further those goals and will continue to educate the public about sensible, modern reforms.”

CPR Board President Jeff Hyde said, “We are excited Stephen Wiley has joined Carolina Partnership for Reform as our new Executive Director. CPR has been a tremendous voice for free enterprise and policies that empower individuals and communities across North Carolina. Stephen’s expertise will take our organization to new heights and help us educate even more North Carolinians on the benefits of reform.”

Prior to joining CPR, Wiley worked on campaigns and for the North Carolina General Assembly. In both roles, he was hands-on with messaging, communications, and policy. He helped craft legislation reforming public education, digital learning, tax policy, and information technology expansion. Wiley is a graduate of UNC Chapel Hill and a proud Tar Heel.

Carolina Partnership for Reform is a public benefit organization that conducts policy research and educates the public about freedom-based policy reforms and initiatives in order to further individual liberty, promote economic growth, and improve education in North Carolina. For more information on Carolina Partnership for Reform visit
