    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - About three dozen jobs in the Charlotte region net workers an average annual salary of between $100,000 and $165,000.

    Among the highest-paying occupations in this particular category are financial managers — likely not surprising, given that the Queen City has regained its coveted title as the second-largest banking hub in the U.S. by total assets — in addition to optometrists and sales managers.

    Financial managers, in fact, make more in the Charlotte-Concord-Gastonia region than in any other metropolitan area in North Carolina. The closest N.C. locale to match Charlotte’s average annual salary of $164,310 for that job is Durham, which came close at $164,060.

    And that amount is more than triple the overall average income for Charlotte-area workers — $51,000 as of May 2018. That’s up 1.7 percent from $50,150 in the previous year.
