The organization, which was started in 2009, has been to disasters in Atlanta, Raleigh-Durham, Wilmington, Nashville, Jolpin, Missouri, and other areas.
When they began looking for a place to relocate to, Greenville popped up in Forbes magazine as one of the top places to relocate a business, Wiseman said.
The Upstate, he said, is very business friendly and the improvements made by the city of the Greenville have made the downtown an attractive area.
Also, this particular part of South Carolina and the Southeast is among the least likely to have a major disaster, Wiseman said.
“The last thing you want as a a disaster relief company is to put your headquarters in harm’s way, so it was a financial logistical and a safety decision to relocate here to Greenville,” he said.

Leadership Memphis class.
Dr. Venson also choreographed the Debutante Cotillion for 44 years, a task she turned over to Washington.
She also gave a lot to her family, said niece Yolanda Abram of Durham, N.C.
"You know how a dancer is graceful? That's the way she wanted us to act all the time," Abram said. "During my high school graduation, I was not walking tall and graceful. I was playing around. And she lit into me."
Dr. Venson first became ill early in 2010 and spent her final days at home.
During that time, she never lost her sense of humor, Bailey said.
"She told me somebody was saying a prayer for her to stay here and she said 'I wish they'd stop it.' She had a humorous side, even then," said long-time friend Barbara Bailey.
"She lived a beautiful life and if there's such a thing, she died a beautiful death," Bailey said.
In addition to her husband, Dr. Venson is survived by sisters Lavern Buford of Memphis and Geraldine Hooks of Columbus, Ohio.
Funeral services will be today at 11:30 a.m. at St. Augustine Catholic Church, 1169 Kerr.
Interment is at 2 p.m. at West Tennessee Veterans Cemetery, 4000 Forest Hill Irene Road.
V.H. Bins & Sons Mid-South Funeral Home has charge.

A movie with the broadest appeal became known as a “four-quadrant film.”
Whether Mr. Farrell’s influence was positive or malign was debated. Ron Shelton, the director of “Bull Durham” and “White Man Can’t Jump,” complained to The Los Angeles Times in 1992 that Hollywood’s reliance on marketing “contributes to the lowest-common-denominator mentality and the proliferation of formulaic movies and genres.”
“I want to confound expectations in my movies, not cater to them,” Mr. Shelton said.
Mr. Farrell defended his work. “The film is the athlete; I just give it every training tip I know,” he said. “Filmmaking is a creative pursuit but must ultimately go commercial. Market research, a town meeting of sorts, lets the filmmaker know if he’s communicating effectively with the public.”

Joe Major, a friend and radio colleague of Wilson's, "but I have not met one person that had some dealing with Al who didn't come away genuinely liking the guy. That's the toughest part."
Born in Durham, N.C., Wilson was an avid sports fan his entire life. He was an all-conference outside linebacker in high school. One of the highlights of his senior year was getting the chance to work out a few days with then-college star Lawrence Taylor, who went on to a Hall-of-Fame career in the NFL. Wilson played tight end for two years at North Carolina Central University before a knee injury ended his football career. In his senior year at NC-Central, he was a member of the school's NCAA Division II national championship basketball team. One of his athletic claims to fame was playing a pickup basketball game with NBA great Michael Jordan.
His favorite teams growing up were the Dallas Cowboys, New York Yankees and the University of Notre Dame, and he remained loyal to them throughout his life.
"I used to give him grief for being a front-runner," Jones said. "I'd say, 'Al, I don't get it. The Cowboys, the Yankees and Notre Dame? Isn't there an underdog team in your life you're rooting for?' "
Wilson had a lifelong passion for writing. Upon graduating from college, he worked for the Durham (N.C.) Morning Herald. He moved to the Rochester (N.Y.) Times-Union and then the Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel before joining The News.
It was early in his News career that he met his wife, Lisa, who now is executive sports editor at The News.
Wilson worked the high school sports and college sports beats for The News and covered numerous NCAA Final Four basketball championships. In 2006, he and News reporter Keith McShea won a New York Newspaper Publishers first-place award for a series on the scarcity of African-American coaches in area schools. He has covered numerous Super Bowls over the past decade.
"When he was covering high schools, he almost had a big-brother type attitude toward the kids he dealt with," Jones said.
Wilson took pride in having a vote for college football's Heisman Trophy the last 15 years and followed the college game intensely.
"He loved evaluating," Jones said. "His business wasn't college football in the big sense. He covered the Bills, and he had to be familiar with the college games. But he had every cable package possible and watched a lot of games every week of the college season. For our draft preview, he'd be giving us 18 players deep on special teamers. I'd tell him, 'Al we're not going to run more than five of these guys. (The Buffalo News)
