NCTA Opens Office in Charlotte
The North Carolina Technology Association (NCTA), the primary voice of the technology industry in North Carolina, today announced the opening of a new office in Charlotte. Twenty percent of NCTA’s member companies (500+) have a primary office or presence in the greater Charlotte region. Charlotte has been NCTA’s fastest growing region three years running.
“This represents the first time NCTA has opened an office outside of its Raleigh headquarters. Many of our Charlotte members have played a pivotal role in the opening of this office, which will support the Queen City’s growing technology industry,” said Kay Read, Director of Member Value (Charlotte Region) in a statement.
NCTA’s Charlotte office, which is located in NCTA corporate member goodmortgage.com’s building at 3325 South Tryon Street, will provide a central hub for technology companies throughout the Charlotte region.
NCTA is becoming fully entrenched in the Charlotte technology scene, which includes working with groups such as the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce, Business Innovation & Growth (BIG), Charlotte Regional Technology Executives Council (CRTEC), Charlotte Area Science Network and the Society for Information Management (Charlotte chapter).
“I’m very pleased to see the NCTA Charlotte office come to fruition. We began the process of building a meaningful, influential membership base a few years ago from a core nucleus of board members in Charlotte with a desire to establish NCTA’s presence here. This office clarifies NCTA’s engagement and enhances the growth of NCTA’s local membership and programs,” said David Jones, the president and CEO of Peak 10, an NCTA board member and past chairman in a statement. “NCTA’s Charlotte office is another positive move for our technology and entrepreneurial community by increasing awareness and visibility of the state’s growing technology businesses, driving its focus on green technology initiatives, and further developing its longstanding leadership in government relations, knowledge workforce and STEM initiatives.”
