Meet the Team: Tavares Durrah, Investor Development Manager

Posted by: Tavares Durrah on Thursday, January 4, 2018

I grew up in the small town of Cowpens, SC, which is about 40 miles outside of Greenville. As a child, I remember visiting Greenville with family and enjoying the downtown scene. Greenville has served as a second home to me and I’ve always enjoyed the culture, great restaurants, and the continued growth of the city.

I studied at the University of South Carolina Upstate and graduated with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with a concentration in Non–Profit Administration and Management. I have always had a passion for helping others. I’ve served and worked in the non-profit field for ten plus years. It is important that I give back to my community, and serve where my talents are needed.  

In the past 5 years, I spent most of my time living in Atlanta, GA working in sales to help businesses grow their technology needs. In my new role as Investor Development Manager I will use the skills I have learned through my experiences to build strong community and business relationships here in Greenville. I am passionate about assisting businesses and their needs, and look forward to establishing strong relationships throughout Greenville County.

  

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my daughter Madison. Family is everything to me, and I love spending time with those I love. I have two older brothers, Victor and Ronald, who both reside in the Upstate. I’m an avid Clemson Tigers and Carolina Panthers fan! I also enjoy playing competitive flag football on the weekend. I mentor with Brothers Restoring Urban Hope, Inc., and volunteer with the Boy Scouts of America Exploring Career emphasis program in my free time.

One of my favorite quotes is “Relationships are all there is!” I look forward to building as many relationships possible here in Greenville!
