New BofA chairman supports Queen City HQ

Chad Holliday Jr., was selected as Bank of America's new chairman on Wednesday. The 62-year-old is a past CEO of DuPont.

And while Holliday may live in Nashville, he has stated his support for Charlotte to remain the site for BofA's headquarters.

"I've spent a lot of time in your city and now since I'm the newest member of the Bank of America board of directors, I look forward to many trips here year after year," he once said, according to the Charlotte Observer.

Asked after that meeting whether Charlotte could be confident about retaining the bank's headquarters, Holliday said, "I don't know anybody who brought up the idea of moving the headquarters."
