  • February 15, 2017

Charlotte, NC – Parker Poe was recently acknowledged as a winner of SmartCEO’s Charlotte 2017 Corporate Culture Awards honoring businesses in the Charlotte community that foster a workplace culture of creativity, collaboration and growth. The finalists and winners were chosen by an independent committee of local business leaders. The committee recognizes businesses that champion an encouraging environment in an organization and identify firms with leadership that develop a positive culture and enhance employee performance to sustain a competitive advantage in the market.

Parker Poe Partners Wanda Townsend and Brian Koontz were joined by clients from Primax Properties, Bank of the Ozarks and New Dominion Bank to support Managing Partner Tom Griffin, who accepted the award at the event held on Tuesday, February 7 in the NoDa area. Guests at the award ceremony enjoyed exclusive networking and an upscale cocktail hour, along with a Parker Poe-sponsored cornhole game.

“We are a people-focused and relationship-driven business, which means that culture is everything,” says Tom Griffin, Managing Partner. “It’s the glue that binds us together. So from our mail room to our board room, and even among our clients, we build and guard a common set of deeply rooted values – collaboration, passion, respect, trust and accountability – that reinforces the idea that we are better together.”

The firm is honored to be recognized for creating and nurturing a positive company culture in the Charlotte office and the firm as a whole across its seven offices throughout the Southeast.
