On a personal note, before joining the Chamber Team, I was a local small business owner. My business partner and I worked with Matt to set up our communications systems. He did an amazing job and I would highly recommend Carolina Tel’s work! They were reliable, trustworthy, and took great care of us. I cannot say enough good things about Matt and his company!
