SC's Water Professionals Work With Business Community

Most businesses in South Carolina know the importance of our state's water resources.  In fact, many have said that shortages of water are much more likely now this century than oil.  And one of the biggest gatherings for water resource professionals on the East Coast will soon be occurring in Myrtle Beach where this topic will be addressed.
Mike Switzer interviews Heather Beard, executive director of the South Carolina chapter of the American Waterworks Association in Columbia, SC, host organization for the upcoming South Carolina Environmental Conference.

After almost 20 years, Mike Switzer retired from Wells Fargo Securities in 2001 as Senior Vice President/Investment Officer and Certified Portfolio Manager. In 1999, he and his wife, Maggie, purchased and operated for eight years the Baskin Robbins ice cream store on Forest Drive in Columbia. They grew the store from a bottom-tier operation in the Baskin Robbins franchise system to one in the top 5% nationwide within three years, tripling sales along the way. While operating the ice cream store, Mike and Maggie received patents for a portable ice cream sink and fold-down sneezeguard they invented and in 2002 started Magnolia Carts, an ice cream cart manufacturing company, which they sold in 2013.
