The Host

Hello everyone! Thank you for taking the time to visit Tar Heel Talks. I hope these interviews can give you as much value as they've given me.

My name is Chad Mason and I began Tar Heel Talks after graduating from UNC-Chapel Hill and beginning my career in finance.

I'm a lifelong resident of North Carolina and I've watched the state transform tremendously. Of course, this incredible transformation wouldn't be possible without the great minds that call this state home.

Mentors have played a tremendous role in my life, but I know everyone isn't as fortunate as I am. I want anyone to be able to experience the guidance that a great mentor can offer.

My mission is to interview successful NC leaders in business, education, and government. By sharing their stories, I hope others will be inspired to follow in their footsteps.

Lastly, these episodes are meant to be entertaining and interactive. Please leave any feedback or questions you have so I can continue to improve the show, enjoy!
