With the tight labor market we are currently experiencing, companies need every advantage they can get in order to lure qualified employees.  It certainly helps if your business is named one of the best places to work ten years in a row.

Mike Switzer interviews Sandy Reeser, CEO of VC3, an IT services company in Columbia, SC, recently named, once again, as one of our state’s best places to work by the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce.

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.
