BBT high tech building with people walking inside width=The BB&T Leadership Institute was established in 1994 to give organizations a leadership development partner to help create dynamic and effective leaders, increase employee retention and improve the bottom line. Now BB&T is investing in a new home to expand the institute’s capabilities and appeal.

“This new home for The BB&T Leadership Institute will allow us to expand our life-changing leadership development offerings,” said Will Sutton, director of The BB&T Leadership Institute. “With its unique natural setting and the ability to offer overnight accommodations, this new facility will provide a truly immersive environment where emerging leaders can grow.”

The 58,000-square-foot, approximately $34 million facility will be built on a heavily wooded, 11-acre site adjacent to the BB&T Triad Corporate Center on Airport Center Drive in Greensboro, N.C. The institute expects to begin operating in the new facility in early 2018.
