J. King White:

Raised on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, I earned my college degree from Elon University. After a stint as Elon's Director of Alumni and Parent Relations, I moved to NC’s innovation-rich Research Triangle to launch and operate the region’s first commercial cellular telephone provider. Today as an active proponent of the Triangle’s vibrant entrepreneurial ecosystem, I build productive business collaborations by proactively connecting community resources to needs. And I don't mind rolling up my sleeves and getting my hands dirty. When I’m not off exploring Raleigh's vast greenway system, you’ll likely find me at the workbench or consumed by my latest DIY project.
