The February 2023 Business North Carolina includes our annual Dynamic Diversity feature, spotlighting a dozen leaders who are making a significant impact. Those profiled include executives of large companies and small business owners. Another feature describes changes at the N.C. State Employees’ Credit Union. CEO Jim Hayes is instilling new strategies to expand the $54 billion institution’s influence, but facing some pushback from former leaders and others. Wilmington writer Emory Rakestraw contributed a story on conflict between the state’s burgeoning oyster farming industry and beachfront property owners. The magazine also includes Q&As with Charlotte lawyer Russell Robinson II and Raeford hospital executive Roxie Wells, who is past chair of the N.C. Healthcare Association. And Cassie Bustamente wrote about four young professionals who returned to Greensboro after working in some much larger U.S. cities.
