VCEDC Recognized by Dick Leinenkugal at Greater Northwoods Business Event

Wednesday , Dec 18, 2019

So inspired to attend the Greater Northwoods business speaker’s forum on December 18th  featuring Dick Leinenkugel, President and Chief Beer Merchant for the Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company.  Mr. Leinenkugal shared his knowledge and wisdom on entrepreneurship and, highlighted his role as a former board member with the Vilas County Economic Development Corporation, stating: “I joined the board because I believed in their mission outside of tourism to connect the workforce to business and bring in new business.”

Special thanks to the Greater Northwoods initiative and to Sitecast for hosting the event.
