Mike Romot, Architectural Department Head, has graduated from Leadership North Carolina (LNC) as part of its 28th class. Mike and his fellow participants completed the program in 2021, with the formal graduation ceremony postponed to May 2022 due to COVID-19. He joins the ranks of past Clark Nexsen alumni, including Terri Hall, Jason Jones, Jeff Yelton, Peter Aranyi, and Richard Fort.
With a mission to inform, develop, and engage leaders in North Carolina, LNC broadens participants’ understanding of key issues and opportunities facing the state. A series of sessions held at locations across North Carolina deliver valuable insights on five key areas: economic development, education, environment, government, and health and human services. Through these sessions and interactive discussions, participants gain knowledge and build networks that enable them to have a positive impact on the state and its people moving forward.
Mike shares that Leadership North Carolina was an enlightening experience that expanded his knowledge of how to have an impact:
“I’m really thankful for the opportunity to be part of LNC. The conversations with other leaders in the state highlighted how, to make a difference, we must engage with people outside of our professional sphere and learn from them.”
Mike leads the architectural department of Clark Nexsen’s Charlotte, NC office. A graduate of both the Bachelor of Architecture and the Bachelor of Arts in Architecture programs at UNC Charlotte, he is invested in the future growth and success of both the city and the state of North Carolina. His recent work includes the new Science Building at UNC Charlotte and a variety of projects for Central Piedmont Community College.
