Hello, my name is Brad Wruble. My wife Rachael and I moved to Belmont in 2009 to start our new family and careers. Growing up in small town Michigan we wanted a community with similar attributes yet close enough to transportation to get back home to visit family. Belmont and the surrounding towns and cities has that balance we sought. Since that time we have been involved in varies ways to support this wonderful community and are so happy to call Gaston County home. In 2014 we welcomed our first daughter, Lucy Anne, and in 2016 we welcomed daughter number 2, Lily Loraine. Starting in 2017, I will be the owner of Belmont Eye located in the heart of Belmont. With my new business adventure, I am both excited to see where this takes us and also terrified of where this will take us. I am sure with the support of this chamber our adventure will be a memorable one.
