Daily Herald Business Ledger: Business experts tout collaboration at economic forum


SBAC President and Co-Founder, Elliot Richardson, was proud to provide a legislative update and moderate an engaging panel discussion at the Daily Herald’s Small Business Economic Forum. Other participants were Mark Peterson (CEO, Intersect Illinois), Mick O’Rourke (Signature Bank), Matt Frank (Director of Economic Development for Schaumburg) and Mark Koplin (Director of Economic Development for Hoffman Estates).

Richard Klicki with the Daily Herald Business Ledger summarized the event theme — “despite perceived negativity, the suburbs and Illinois have a strong foundation for business and leaders need to band together to spread that message to attract new business to the area.”
