Teddy McDaniel, who launched his career in the financial services industry, has been named president and CEO of Urban League of Central Carolinas (ULCC), effective Aug. 1.

McDaniel comes to Charlotte after leading the Urban League in Austin, Texas, for the past five years.
Jack Cobb, who chairs the board of directors for the Charlotte-based Urban League, said McDaniel brings to the job “strong relational and managerial skills and a deep sense of commitment to serving both our clients and the larger community.”

McDaniel replaces former President and CEO Patrick Graham, who led ULCC for nine years before leaving last fall to head Charlotte Works, the workforce development board for Charlotte and Mecklenburg County.
