linkedin-laptop-360Charlotte Business Professionals is a fast-growing LinkedIn “group” that includes nearly 2,700 professionals from multiple industries and companies across the greater Charlotte Region.

The group was founded in June 2008 by Jason McKinstry, Director of Enterprise Services at Sogeti USA (an IT consulting firm) and ranks today as one of LinkedIn’s largest non-alumni groups.  Jason has created quite a buzz in Charlotte’s LinkedIn community for his efforts in hosting the group’s first “face-to-face” networking event.

Team DARTON attended the LinkedIn networking event that was hosted last evening at the Marriott in uptown Charlotte.  Aside from a few hiccups that you would expect with “first time” events, we believe the opportunity for Charlotte Business Professionals to take computer-based social networking to the next level of face-to-face networking is ripe with potential.
