Charlotte is a corporate town, and our city is home to outposts of most of the nation’s largest companies.

But there’s still prestige attached to being the headquarters city. The HQ is home to scores of jobs across multiple functions, and there are usually plenty of open positions. Being in the headquarters city also often makes it easier to climb the corporate ladder.

Here are 23 of the largest companies headquartered in the Charlotte area, listed by revenue.

Note: Data comes from the Fortune 500 list, the Securities and Exchange Commission, Charlotte Regional Partnership, Charlotte Chamber, Hoover’s, and Grant Thornton.

Public companies are easy, and we used 2017 annual revenue for the list. For private companies, we had to go with our best guess on available information.
