Williamson Business PAC adds two community and business leaders to board

“I’m so excited to announce that Michael and Cherie have joined the Williamson Business PAC,” said Dennis Norvet, chairman of the Williamson Business PAC Board. “We are committed to keeping Williamson County the state’s best place to live, work and raise a family, and they have the business and political experience to help us achieve that goal.”    

Carter, managing partner of the Tennessee-based construction firm Pinnacle Construction Partners, grew up in Detroit in poverty. Through parents, teachers and mentors, he attended and graduated from the University of Detroit. He holds an A.B. and M.B.A. degree from the University of Detroit. Carter is the co-founder of Jalen Rose Leadership Academy in Detroit, as well as past chair of the Nashville Public Education Foundation and United Way of Middle Tennessee. He and his wife live in Williamson County.

“I grew up in inner-city Detroit, and I can personally attest the difference a quality public education can mean in a student’s life,” said Carter. “Williamson County students are blessed to have such good teachers and good schools. It’s imperative that we protect that asset in our community.”

Hammond has been a leader in almost every facet of the Williamson County community for almost 20 years. Her experience spans from corporate to nonprofit to governmental. A CPA by trade, she owns Cherie Hammond Consulting. She is a former member of the Williamson County School Board.

“When asked to serve on the Williamson Business PAC board, I agreed because it indeed matters who governs,” said Hammond. “As a parent of three Williamson County School graduates, I know personally what these schools mean to our families. I’m thrilled to be able to build on my nonprofit and political experience with the Williamson Business PAC.”
