Erwin Carter, CBSE — President and CEO
Erwin is the president and chief executive officer for Peak Workforce Solutions, LLC . He serves on the Board of Directors for the company which is headquartered in Greenville, SC.
Growing up in Aiken South Carolina, Erwin was afforded a unique opportunity to be exposed to a diverse culture and environment at a very early age. As the son of hardworking parents who were living in the midst of the Civil Rights movement in the Deep South, they raised their children with character and optimism and instilled in them the belief that you could accomplish anything that you strive to do whether that was in furthering your education, participating in athletics, giving through community service or pursuing a career.
Erwin explored many college opportunities and eventually chose Davidson College because of its deep commitment to a very strict honor code and the value they placed on individual development as it relates to becoming a “servant leader.” Erwin received his Bachelor of Science in Economics and joined the banking industry in a very dynamic period where consolidation was underway and specific specialties were being created.
During his years in the banking and financial services industry, Erwin held a variety of leadership positions within international trade finance, corporate banking, private banking and treasury management. His exposure to global cultures offered many opportunities to leverage diversity in a very positive way and work on solutions that brought the power of diversity to achieving increased levels of success.
In 2012, Erwin took his belief in diversity and sought to develop a company that reflected the power that diversity could bring to an enterprise and to leverage that power by providing an environment that could have a positive impact on all the individuals within that company. We know that company today as Peak Workforce Solutions.
Erwin’s focused and inclusive leadership style has made Peak Workforce Solutions a valued “Supplier Diversity Partner” and has provided a continuous flow of opportunities for all Peak Workforce Solutions associates to rise beyond their own expectations and obtain the leadership and management skills that would make them a valued member of any organization.
Erwin also serves as a member of the Board of Directors of the National Black Arts Festival in Atlanta, is a member of the Advisory Council of the Greenville Chamber of Commerce Minority Business Accelerator (MBA) Initiative, is a member of Omicron Delta Kappa Leadership Council and is a former member of the Board of Trustees of Davidson College in Davidson NC.
