In case you missed one or more of the Salt Lake Chamber’s Utah Business Reports on KSL NewsRadio, here is a recap of what we talked about this week.
Utah Symphony | Utah Opera recently launched “The Campaign for Perpetual Motion,” a $20 million public fundraising campaign that will continue to build and showcase the organization throughout the entire state of Utah and beyond. The campaign comes as the Utah Symphony prepares to celebrate its 75th anniversary season in 2015-2016.
Utah Symphony | Utah Opera announced the Campaign for Perpetual Motion and its lead gift of 5 million dollars from the George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Foundation one month ago. This landmark gift, including its 2013-2014 Season Sponsorship, carries on the Eccles Foundation’s decades-long support totaling more than $32 million.
Special plans in development include a statewide tour as well as a tour with free concerts in or near each of Utah’s national parks. Utah Symphony will also tour to the West and East coasts, and to Europe and Asia.
Utah Symphony | Utah Opera connects Utah communities through great live music, serving as the premiere local provider of orchestral and operatic art forms.
More and more businesses are learning that Utah is a great place to do business.
Cytozyme Laboratories recently celebrated the relocation of its headquarters to South Salt Lake.
Cytozyme was founded in 1975, but over the past five years they have nearly tripled. Between 2012 and 2013 alone, their revenue increased by 30 percent. The time for a larger building with more space to continue growth had arrived. The 107,000 square foot building will allow production to quadruple as they commit to a new Cytozyme of Sustainable Solutions to increase world food production.
Since 1975, Cytozyme Laboratories has provided farmers with safe and effective products designed to improve crop quality and productivity, while maintaining a commitment to social and environmental stewardship.
Parallel HR Solutions, a full service technical and financial staffing company with headquarters in Murray, has been recognized on the 2013 Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing companies in the U.S.
Founded in 2005, Parallel HR Solutions prides itself on building true consultative partnerships. Their unique staff includes subject matter experts who have specific work experience in the areas they recruit for. That brings a level of expertise and knowledge that can’t be taught and allows a deeper level of screening for Parallel’s clientele.
Business has doubled over the past three years and is now expanding across the United States including cities like New York and Austin, Texas.
NAIOP Utah, the Commercial Real Estate Development Association, has presented the chapter’s 2013 Developer of the Year Award to Jake Boyer, president and CEO of The Boyer Company.
With both the 101 and 102 Towers in Salt Lake City under construction and development, The Boyer Company has developed over 30 million square feet of commercial space since 1972, with more than 500 million dollars of development in progress.
NAIOP supports the Utah commercial real estate industry by influencing local, state, and regional legislative policy, providing superior education events, and fostering networking opportunities.
It’s less than one month before 2014! Ring in the New Year at EVE, Salt Lake City’s three day celebration downtown on December 29, 30 and 31.
