SC Attorney “Buzzes” on State Economy

South Carolina Business Review
SC Public Radio
/

Our next guest is an attorney and two-time former director of the South Carolina Department of Revenue who now represents companies and organizations that need assistance with state and local tax issues and economic development incentives. And last year he started a podcast that focuses on our state’s economic development issues.

Mike Switzer interviews Burnie Mayback with Nexsen Pruet in Columbia and host of The Buzz With Burnie podcast.

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.
