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. And yes, Michael Libbie of this newscast, was also honored. Thank you. Click the player to hear the story:
