Many organizations today depict their management structure in the traditional wiring diagram that would reveal more of a "top down" approach in support of customer operations.
We look at that very differently.
We know that our success depends on the success of the account leadership located at each customer facility that we serve. Like the soldier on the battlefield, our management structure is created to support the efforts of those who operate in the "trenches" each and every day, working hard to deliver the results that we promised.
We turned it upside down.
Our "Bottom Up" Approach provides the strong roots and solid foundation to leverage the wealth of experience of our leadership team in support of our customer operations.
Newbold Services Leaders
Erwin Carter, CBSE — President and CEO
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 strived 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 2006, 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 Newbold Services.
Erwin’s focused and inclusive leadership style has made Newbold Services a valued “Supplier Diversity Partner” and has provided a continuous flow of opportunities for all Newbold 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.

In 2006, Taylor joined Newbold Services as COO and began to reshape the internal processes of the company to provide an elevated level of support to our individual site managers in every customer account.
