Expanding opportunities for business and financial services

A key indicator of the economic health of the Fayetteville and Cumberland County area is the demand for high-value business and financial services to support local companies. We have a highly educated, highly motivated workforce that has the skills to handle the technological advances and transactional complexity of today’s economy.


Our enthusiastic workforce includes more than 7,000 new military retirees each year, as well as thousands of military spouses who have the skills, knowledge, and work ethic to serve in high-demand office situations, transactional financial services, insurance, and other industries that benefit from high productivity and an affordable cost of doing business.


We have many residents with degrees in the STEM disciplines of Biological & Biomedical Sciences, Computer & Information Sciences, and Mathematics & Statistics, and local employers benefit from education and training support from Fayetteville State University, Methodist University, and Fayetteville Technical College.
