George Holding grew up in Raleigh, North Carolina. He attended Wake Forest University and has degrees in Classics and Law. Holding clerked for U.S. District Judge Terrence Boyle, practiced law with Kilpatrick Townsend and served as the United States Attorney for North Carolina.
As United States Attorney, his priorities included prosecution of violent felons, drug offenses, child pornography, and political corruption.
