THIS IS LARRY MANKIN, PRESIDENT OF THE SALT LAKE CHAMBER, WITH YOUR METRO BUSINESS REPORT

Here’s a report from Utah Business Week: The 22nd annual Utah Business Week began Sunday at Utah State University in Logan and runs through the 11th. This weeklong “business boot camp” for youth is put on by the Chamber to teach teens about the realities of business. Today the youth meet with experts from Simmons Media, Clear Channel Communications, the Economic Development Corporation of Utah, and Solomon Smith. They also will tour local companies and will enjoy a dance in the evening.

Several Salt Lake businesses report personnel changes. Amy Reitsch has been named as the new State Director of the Utah Chapter of the March of Dimes. ClearOne Communications has named Scott Newth as Group Vice President of Business Services. Big-D has hired Greg Fix as Senior Estimator, John Fleming as Senior Project Manager, and Brigham Wilcox as Estimator. Arlene Urias is the new Station Manager at Univision KUTH-TV 12.

According to the Economic Development Corporation of Utah, Twin Lab, an American Fork based company, will hire an additional 225 new workers bringing their total to 500 employees.

It is time to celebrate 100 years of building business in Salt Lake. On September 14th is the Chamber’s Century Celebration Gala sponsored by Questar and Stoel Rives. We will honor all the past Athena Award Winners, and Giant Step Small Business Award winners. Call the Chamber now to reserve your space at 328-5050 or see us on the web at saltlakechamber.org.
