I've been here now for I guess 13 years now. I really wanted somewhere where I can have a real good life and work balance. The other thing that kept me here I was already in the lending industry so Charlotte is a big big area for banking operations. So I thought it will be a good good time for me to move back then and it's worked out very well for my family. - Wes Pruitt
There's so many opportunities here. And the thing about this area is it is so diverse. There's a lot of folks here from different nationalities. There's a large range of the population from different backgrounds, different cultural backgrounds, different socio economic backgrounds. And I think that really contributes very well to the environment and the overall atmosphere in the city. - Wes Pruitt
