Community State Bank Hosts 2014 Business Economic Forum

March 25th, 2014

Over 120 business professionals and guests from throughout Racine County recently attended a Business Economic Forum hosted by Community State Bank.

The forum was held at Michaels’s on the Lake in Kansasville, WI, on Tuesday, March 25th, and covered a variety of topics and concerns facing local area businesses.

After a brief presentation by CSB President Scott Huedepohl, Racine County Executive Jim Ladwig took the floor with a presentation and discussion focusing on the current economic state of Racine County. Mr. Ladwig spoke at length about the County’s finances, workforce development, the I94 corridor, and the overall economic outlook for Racine County in 2014 and beyond.

Next, President and CEO of Runzheimer International Greg Harper shared his expertise on “Total Employee Mobility”, a management approach to help businesses and organizations improve the bottom-line performance of their mobile workforce. Harper then took questions from guests that covered a broad range of topics.

“This was a great opportunity to bring professionals and business leaders throughout the County together to share candid points of view,” said Huedepohl. “I’d like to thank everyone that was able to attend, and offer our sincere appreciation to our guest speakers, Greg Harper and Jim Ladwig. They took time out of their busy schedules to help make this event a tremendous success.”

The Bank plans to build on the success of their initial forum and develop it as annual event.
