Water Professionals Gathering Soon in SC

South Carolina Business Review logo

  Every two years, water industry professionals in our state gather to discuss the growing challenge the industry has of providing the water resources necessary to sustain and grow South Carolina’s economy, without depleting our natural resources.  The South Carolina Water Resources Conference is coming up once again October 12-13.

Mike Switzer interviews Jeff Allen, with Clemson University, coordinator of this event.

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.
