The business recruitment and expansion team works with mid-sized to large companies who are looking to relocate or establish a new facility in Charlotte and current Charlotte companies looking to expand their operations.
The team works closely with regional economic development agencies, including Mecklenburg County Economic Development, Charlotte Regional Business Alliance, and the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina to help companies make the decision to locate to or expand in Charlotte. The Business Recruitment team does this through assisting companies by:
Providing labor market and demographic information
Assisting with real estate and property searches
Connecting to local education and workforce development partners
Since assuming the role of business recruitment and retention project management in 2018, this team has helped Centene, Credit Karma, Robinhood, Better.com, Lowe’s, Microsoft, Honeywell, and many others relocate to or expand in Charlotte.
Our efforts have resulted in more than 13,400 new jobs, 4,250 jobs retained, and $1.5 billion in capital investment.
