Joe Hallow, president and COO of Bissell’s hotel group—The Ballantyne Hotel & Lodge, Courtyard by Marriott, Staybridge Suites, and the Aloft—and also past chairman of the Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority, notes Charlotte’s elevation in hospitality and tourism. “You don’t just go from the kind of conventions we had in the early 1990s and all of a sudden get a DNC,” says Hallow. “You’ve got to show a pattern of success and deliver a quality experience.”

A Relationship You Can Trust
“We take a different approach to our projects,” says Andy Robbins. “We’re not followers. We don’t come to the job asking what to do. We come with a plan of action to review with the client and then get to work. To do that, we have to have their trust.” Brother Kevin points out, “That trust had to be earned. We had to earn our way, and that’s a big deal to us.”
