Adam Hill, director of Charlotte’s Packard Place startup hub, is stepping down after four years. But he’s not moving far. Hill is taking a job with a startup formerly based at Packard Place.

“As some of you know I’m transitioning out of my role at Packard Place in the next few weeks. My last full day at Packard will be August 7th,” he wrote in an email sent to Charlotte area entrepreneurs.

“As for my next steps, I’ve accepted a role with local startup, Levvel. Levvel is an IT consulting firm that offers both technical implementation services as well as strategic advisory services and was co-founded by former Packard tenants John Espey and Chris Hart.  I look forward to joining a stellar team of people at that growing company later this month.”

Hill said “thank you” to a lot of people in the email and also praised the growth of Charlotte’s startup community.

“I’ve had a great experience over the last 4 years working with hundreds of amazing entrepreneurs here at Packard. In that time, the startup community in Charlotte grew rapidly, and it’s been a pleasure to be a part of that activity.  The trajectory of the community is only increasing and I know Packard will continue to play a key role in that.  There are lots of exciting things coming up for Packard Place and I’m looking forward to continuing to participate in the community here,” he wrote.

“I’m a BIG believer in the mission of Packard Place and I will continue to support everything the organization does for the startup community. Very few people understand the blood, sweat, and tears that Dan and Sara have put into supporting the ecosystem.  Their commitment to startups in Charlotte is second to none and it’s been a pleasure working for them.  I know they took a risk to bring me to Charlotte from Orlando four years ago and I’m very grateful for that.
