CHARLOTTE-Texas-based ConnectSouth has selected Charlotte to begin its expansion into the Carolinas.

This supplier of online business tools is also planning to advance into Asheville, Greensboro, Raleigh and Wilmington, as well as the South Carolina cities of Anderson, Charleston, Columbia and Greenville, as part of a $225 million growth plan.

The company will be recruiting locally for its Charlotte office and expects to have 25 workers in the area by early next year.
