Gavin Mitchell has been acquiring and renovating downtown property in Hickory for more than a decade. His renovated commercial spaces have attracted viable businesses that complement the existing mix of retail, professional, and service companies in the downtown district. Several homes he renovated provide residential opportunities for families looking for an urban lifestyle.
Mr. Mitchell has been the Chairman of the Business Development, Design, and Promotions Committees. He has also served three terms on the Hickory Downtown Development Association (HDDA) Board of Directors, one as Treasurer and two as President.
