RALEIGH, N.C. -- The group that calls itself the voice of North Carolina's business community has its first black leader.
Cynthia Marshall becomes chairwoman of the North Carolina Chamber on Thursday. She's been the president of AT&T's North Carolina operations for the past three years.
Marshall and the rest of the group's leadership team were elected at the group's annual meeting in Durham earlier this month.
The organization's other elected officers are Wachovia Carolinas community banking president Stan Kelly of Charlotte, Food Lion CEO Rick Anicetti of Salisbury, First Citizens Bank chairman and CEO Frank Holding of Raleigh, and Robert Stolz of Charlotte, the North American CEO for The Wurth Group.
