In Her Shoes Interview Series Pt. 1: Why Charleston, SC?

After being ranked fifth on SC Biz News' Roaring Twenties list of fastest-growing companies in South Carolina, the exaqueo team sat down with a former Roaring Twenties Winner to discuss why Charleston, South Carolina was the chosen location to start and grow both Catch Talent and exaqueo. 

Our Founder and CEO, Susan LaMotte sat opposite of Christina Lock, Founder and CEO of Catch Talent to discuss this topic. Catch Talent is a “high-touch recruiting agency that delivers end-to-end talent acquisition solutions to growing technology, digital media, and professional services companies.” Both Christina and Susan allude to Charleston’s sense of community and hospitality as well as the rapid growth the Lowcountry has experienced in recent years. 

“When I started Catch, there were dozens of people saying, ‘How can I help?’ That was just such a great feeling to really have the community wrap your arms around you as you’re going through this very, what can be, kind of a lonely journey, starting a company.” 

        Christina Lock, Founder and CEO of Catch Talent 

“Charleston really is a great place to live and work…I think as we continue to grow…we can pay attention to ‘what does that mean for us?’ And thinking about how we help grow talent here and attract people here that can contribute to the talent workforce and the marketplace too.”

        Susan LaMotte, Founder and CEO of exaqueo
