CHARLOTTE  The Entrepreneurs’ Organization of Charlotte (EO Charlotte) has appointed new board members and elected a new president, Andrew Jones, the owner of Jones Gregg Financial, for the 2021-2022 fiscal year.

“We are thrilled to have this level of talent from among Charlotte’s entrepreneurial community join our leadership team,” said Jones in a statement. “We are among the largest chapters in the fastest growing region of EO Global, which is testament to the growing innovation in the Queen City.”


EO Charlotte has 103 members, according to an online fact sheet.  EO Raleigh Durham has 57 members according to an online fact sheet.
