Prior to moving to Greenville, I had only visited a few times before. After my first trip here, I knew it would be a great place to land.Jehan WillsSenior Marketing Manager, McMillan Pazdan Smith
I love South Carolina, and I love Spartanburg because it is a hub to everything. It is booming with recreational and cultural activities that make it a great place to raise a family and have a successful career, all while giving you a sense of belonging in a larger community.Lakessa WrightSenior Sales Executive, Milliken & Company
