Recently Cityview Magazine's Business Journal held a special event honoring nineteen individuals for their outstanding work in the Greater Des Moines Metro. Nineteen people whom the Business Journal says are "making a difference" in 2019. We were there and spoke to a number of the recipients following the gala celebration. While we couldn't get to them all we did visit with:
- Shane Goodman - Owner/Publisher of Cityview
- Michele Starkenburg of Ankeny, Iowa
- E.J. Giovannetti a long-time Urbandale community servant;
- Jim Miller a financial planner and Waukee community leader;
- Jackie Norris the President/CEO of Goodwill Industries of Central Iowa;
- Christine Osborne the General Manager of Christopher's Fine Jewelry;
- Scott Seeliger of Cognizant’s Global Corporate Affairs Team;
- Luis Cruz the General Manager of Mickey's Irish Pub;
- Dan Knoup the Executive Director of the Greater Des Moines Homebuilders.
A complete list and their bios can be seen here. I wish we could have talked to each recipient but the time got away from us. However each is mentioned in the clip you are about to hear.
Thanks for listening.
