Charlotte Regional Partnership (CRP)

Founded in 1992, the Charlotte Regional Partnership is a nonprofit, private/public organization dedicated to the planned growth and prosperity of the Charlotte region. Roughly the size of the state of Massachusetts, the region includes 16 counties: 12 in North Carolina and 4 in South Carolina. Together the area is marketed as Charlotte USA.

The organization brings together government and local businesses to market and promote Charlotte USA as a highly competitive, vibrant region with an increasingly attractive quality of life.

Embracing the core belief that there is strength in unity, the community and business leaders of Charlotte USA continue to work together to reinforce the powerful concept of "regionalism."

Regionalism is an effective strategy for global "city-regions" like Charlotte and others to grow and prosper in the 21st century world economy. As a result, it has become the driving force behind everything we do.

The President and CEO of CRP is Ronnie Bryant, an accomplished veteran leader in the economic development field. Ronnie is the current Chairman of the International Economic Development Council (IEDC).
