B for me. He's a good candidate because of his experience so if he hadn't accomplished something positive (i.e. establish good relations with business leaders), it wouldn't make sense to mention it.

IMO B
B strengthens the statement further. It was a toss up between B & C. We are trying to strengthen the argument for Grayson and not have a generalization like choice C.
