North End Community Coalition
Board member
Adrienne Rose Martinez a Vice President at Bank of America and a community leader in Charlotte’s North End. She is a board member for the North End Community Coalition, made up of eight neighborhoods that work together in their community building and engagement efforts.

Martinez grew up in a suburb of Los Angeles. Among the first in her family to earn a college degree, received her Bachelors of Science from Cornell University’s College of Industrial and Labor Relations. After working at a small West Coast nonprofit, she returned to Cornell for an MBA at the Johnson Graduate School of Management. After graduating, Martinez joined Deutsche Bank in New York City, where she worked for more than five years with institutional clients as a relationship manager. In 2014, she moved to Charlotte, N.C., where she did a stint as director of corporate and foundation relations at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, before making yet another career switch into information security as part of Bank of America’s Global Information Security team.

Martinez and her life partner, Kinson bought their first home in Brightwalk, a mixed-income neighborhood near uptown where she serves as a resident leader. No stranger to volunteer leadership, she can trace back her experiences to middle school. In Brightwalk and the North End, she has among other things, helped execute on several grants that have brought diverse communities together through waste reduction, stream cleanups, a concert series and exercise classes in a neighborhood park, placemaking initiatives and a four-block-long celebration of National Night Out.
