Managing Principal

“Wow!, It has been 20 years since I went through Leadership North Carolina.  What an incredible experience then, learning about all the aspects of the state and becoming friends with 50 great people from across the state.  It really opened my eyes.  I later went on to serve on Charlotte City Council, and my experience with LNC helped my perspective of the entire state and broke down the us and them attitudes that had been pervasive for a long time.  Today, I still have great connections and friendships with my classmates and many that followed.

I take every chance to tell people about the great opportunities and benefits of going through Leadership North Carolina.  I take great pride in serving as Program Chair, a dozen years on the board, and helping bring in 20 to 30 participants.  If you believe in something, it makes it very easy to promote it.”
