Although he was born and raised in Charlotte, Lawrence’s family has deep roots in the Lowcountry—his family has been part of the Charleston community for over 100 years. His marketing experience is vast, including years of work with Fox and NBC before launching his own firm in Chicago. Lawrence holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism and Business from The University of Georgia. Feeling a draw to Charleston and his Southern roots, he relocated from the Windy City to the Holy City in 2010 and now works with clients around the country.
