Although not from Columbia, BB&T’s South Carolina Regional President Mike Brenan got here as soon as he could. When BB&T built their branch here seven or eight years ago, Brenan mentioned how unique and eclectic he thought the district was. Other than BB&T, he says his favorite landmark in Five Points is the original fountain, as it gives a focal point for people to gather.
As far as Five Points events, his favorite is St. Pat’s in Five Points. He and his family have gone a number of times and they enjoy watching his wife run the signature St. Pat’s race, Get to the Green. A handful of merchants bank with BB&T, which makes Brenan really feel like a part of the community.
