What an amazing time we are in! The Partnership is leading our most comprehensive effort ever in crafting a proposal for Charlotte USA to be selected as the site for Amazon’s second headquarters. A team of more than 40 leaders from across the region have been contributing to this project and it’s been an incredibly positive experience. I can’t thank everyone enough for the time, energy and expertise that, I believe, is making our proposal second to none.
As you have no doubt seen, the competition for Amazon HQ2 from across North America is intense but I am confident we will shine and be selected as a finalist. You can help us be successful in this endeavor! Please spread the word on social media and help Amazon see that there is a groundswell of support from across the region’s public and private sectors for them to call Charlotte USA home.

In other great news, I couldn’t be more proud of our team at the Partnership. Charlotte USA has just been named one of “The Most Valuable Economic Development Brands” in the U.S. by Atlas Advertising. Charlotte Regional Partnership was selected for this recognition after a survey of nearly 100 national and international site selection consultants. I am proud that the Partnership has once again been viewed as a top economic development organization. Our team has a strong commitment to the growth of Charlotte USA and I’m honored that our efforts have been recognized by so many site selection consultants.
