Phil Hughes To Kick Off Poolside Chat Series At Topside Pool Club

Topside Pool Club has started a new business series aimed at letting some of the Upstate’s biggest names in business tell their story in a new kind of setting.

Poolside Chat will launch on April 4 at 5:30 at the downtown pool club with special guest Phil Hughes, said Jaci Willing, Topside membership and event director. A limited number of seats are available for this exclusive event and free registration can be found at

Hughes is the founder and President of Hughes Investments, Inc., a commercial real estate development company, which develops office buildings, retail shopping centers, industrial facilities, apartment buildings and urban mixed-use projects in the Carolinas.  Some local projects include RiverPlace, Poinsett Plaza, Falls Park Place and RiverWalk.

The Poolside Chat program will occur monthly. The speaker in May will be Paul Sparks, managing principal with RealOp Investments.

“Topside is an amazing location for an after-work networking event,” Willing said. “We created the Poolside Chat series to highlight that.”
