Wintrust Business Lunch 11/22/16 | Just in Time For Thanksgiving, Which State is is the Number One Grower of Cranberries?
It’s time for the Wintrust Business Lunch with Steve Bertrand! On today’s show Steve welcomes: Jon Najarian (Najarian Family Offices), Andrew Herrmann (DNAinfo), Tom Lockner (Executive Director of the Wisconsin State Cranberry Growers Association), and John Groh (President/CEO at Rockford Area Convention and Visitors Bureau).
Steve begins the show talking with Jon Najarian about the recent president-elect’s cabinet choices as well as a look at the markets and potential stock choices.
Then, Steve brings on Andrew Herrmann to talk about today’s local headlines – specifically about a local cobbler whose expertise is fixing Air Jordan sneakers.
Tom Lockner of the Wisconsin State Cranberry Growers Association joins the show to inform Steve about all things cranberries. As the number one grower of the fruit, Wisconsin provides the food to grocers and farmers throughout the US. Perfect for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday!
Finally, we close the show with John Groh of the Rockford Area Convention and Visitors Bureau to discuss the recent resurgence of the Rockford community.
