The Alaska business industry has a long history of success. This tight-knit business community is made up of people born and raised here, many of whom go back several generations, and are dedicated to working together and contributing to the vast, beautiful place they live. Alaska business leaders share many attributes: entrepreneurial, resourceful, community-focused, and tough, and they understand the families, workers and communities that support the state. But starting a business in Alaska is not an easy task, and our business leaders overcame several challenges to get where they are today.
On June 15th from 12-1 p.m., join GCI VP of Business Sales Lori Davey for a webinar with Joe Schierhorn, President & CEO at Northrim Bank; Terry Shurtleff, President & CEO at Alaska Industrial Hardware; and Jon Hickman, Vice President at Peter Pan Seafoods, Inc., to share their origin stories and discuss what it means to be Alaska born and raised as an entrepreneur and business leader in the state.
During this live presentation, you'll have the opportunity to ask questions about operating a business in Alaska, how being born and raised in Alaska influences business decisions, and what the future holds for Alaskans as our state continues to grow and we emerge from a pandemic.
