Harper Expands to Spartanburg

After 65 years of operation, The Harper Corporation is excited to open our newest branch office in downtown Spartanburg, located at 320 East Main Street, Suite 400. Harper personnel operating from this location include Office Director and Project Manager Hootie Solesbee, Project Manager Kipp Cox, and Business Analyst and Assistant Project Manager Brandt Goodwin. President David Wise and Business Development Director Kyle Snipes will work from Spartanburg on an as-needed basis.

“Spartanburg has been very good to me personally and to our company professionally. We have cultivated many strong relationships within this community over some 25 years. It simply just made sense to establish a location here,” Wise said. “Spartanburg is a great place to live and work. Harper is pleased to be a member of this community and we look forward to contributing to Spartanburg’s bright future.”

As a Spartanburg native, Solesbee relishes the opportunity to be more integrally involved in the city in which he has deep family history. Hootie will be carrying on the construction legacy of his grandfather, Jim Solesbee, who built his career and reputation in Spartanburg with JM Solesbee Construction founded in 1936.

“We have been extremely fortunate to partner on many phenomenal Spartanburg projects over the years,” says Solesbee. “With the move to Spartanburg, we are excited to become further vested in the city and deepen Harper’s existing relationships with the community as a whole.”
