Connect Caldwell


Connect Caldwell is proudly brought to you by the team at Spokeology as a service to give back to the community where we LIVE. LAUGH. LOVE!   

We are dedicated to showcasing local businesses, events, organizations, people and talent. Connect Caldwell will work to tell the stories of the amazing people who make up our county while providing a free community calendar as well as a business directory to allow organizations and small businesses to promote themselves. 

Meet Our Publisher:  

Cindy Charlton Sutton

A proud daughter of a 30 year retired US Air Force/Army Veteran, Cindy moved around for a big portion of her life.  After living in Germany,  Maryland, Texas, New York and South Carolina, Cindy found HOME in Iredell County when she and her husband Brandon relocated here with Lowe's Companies in 2003.   

Along with their then 3-year-old son Dylan, the Suttons chose Statesville, NC to settle.  

After a 15 year career in Retail, Brand & Commercial Marketing, Merchandising and New Business Development, Cindy turned her focus to Community and helping small businesses in 2011  through founding Spokeology, a full-service Marketing Agency.  

Cindy currently partners with her husband Brandon to oversee the daily Marketing and Finance aspects of their franchised Groucho's Deli location. Groucho’s Deli in Statesville, NC was opened in February of 2010.  The Suttons understand what it takes to own and operate a small family-owned business and are passionate about helping others succeed in Caldwell County.  

Inspired by a conversation she had with her mentor, Attorney William P. Pope in 2013, Cindy has been focused on finding a solution for a Countywide business directory and community calendar.  

When COVID-19 began to impact small businesses in early 2020, we knew that 7 years was long enough to wait and began the process to launch Connect Caldwell.

We look forward to CONNECTing with you!
