Faces of the Lowcountry is an annual sponsored publication that introduces the “faces” of local industry leaders and experts.

These profiles span the Lowcountry, from the owner of a computer company to hair stylists and expert home builders. With more than 70 profiles included in these pages, we bring you the stories of Bluffton’s and Hilton Head Island’s leading entrepreneurs. Every business owner is a local leader and the face of their respective industry. Many have chosen to include their entire staff in their portrait photos, and some even included pets. Running a successful business takes courage, hard work and a commitment to making a difference. These leaders go the extra mile to keep the Lowcountry thriving.

Like many of us, I first got to know the Lowcountry when I visited as a child, and now have made this wonderful place my home. I love being part of the Lowcountry community and watching it grow and prosper. At Frey Media, we decided it was time to get to know the faces of those who serve our community through their work. We asked for recommendations for local leaders and received an outpouring of nominations.

We appreciate your willingness to be a part of this publication. As our local business community grows and diversifies, Lowcountry residents are increasingly able to find everything they need right here at home. We are proud to be part of the effort to “Keep it local, y’all.”
