Born and raised in the small town of Walhalla, South Carolina, Mike Lawrence studied at the University of South Carolina. After double majoring in marketing and finance, he joined his father's business in upstate South Carolina. Here, he helped him expand his company from one office to three! Mike then relocated to Charlotte for the opportunity to grow professionally in a new, exciting and booming city.
Luckily, COVID-19 did not cause too many problems for Mike as he was able to keep his job and work remotely, which helped him realize that his true passion is connecting with new people, working with local businesses and building relationships. So he took the opportunity to work at RevLocal, where he gets a chance to not only connect with his community but also to help local businesses similar to those like his father's.
During his off time, Mike enjoys exploring the city, relaxing with his friends and trying all of the new things that Charlotte has to offer.
