Real estate developer and currently the president and CEO of Bissell Cos. Edward L. “Ned” Curran has been chosen as the chairman of the Charlotte Chamber in 2016. He will be replacing Laura Schulte, a senior executive from Wells Fargo & Co.
Schultz announced last Thursday that she’ll be retiring this year as she was set to be the chamber chair in 2016. She’s the Wells Fargo’s highest-raking community bank executive in Charlotte and she will be succeeded by Michelle Lee, a New Jersey bank executive who is set to relocate to Charlotte for the said position.
Chamber officials have recently announced that Curran will be taking over for Schulte. The officials also said that they were aware of Schulte’s retirement plans and choosing Curran to replace her was planned ahead of time.
Curran currently handles the Bissell’s daily operations, the company famous for their high-profile project in Ballantyne Corporate Park. He’s also the current chair of North Carolina Board of Transportation and an executive committee member of the Charlotte Chamber.
