AITP-RTP Meeting – North Carolina’s Winning Formula for Business


CNBC has named North Carolina its top state for business two years running. We took the top spot as Business Facilities Magazine’s 2022 State of the Year. All after the Tar Heel State won Site Selection’s top spot for Business Climate in 2021, and the last iteration (2019) of Forbes’ “Best State for Business” rankings had North Carolina on top, as well. Learn how this has been years in the making, and what it takes to stay ahead of the competition, particularly with a contentious political season on the horizon.

Our Speaker:

Gary Salamido

Gary Salamido is President and Chief Executive Officer NC Chamber With decades of experience and a proven track record representing North Carolina business interests at the N.C. General Assembly, Gary led the Chamber’s lobbying, advocacy and political efforts before being named its chief operating officer and acting president in 2018, then president and CEO in 2019. Gary’s leadership in advancing policy at the NC Chamber has helped propel the state to the top of a number of best-in-business rankings.
