By: Scott Bertschinger, President and COO, Wells – Great Lakes
Thanks to its prime location on the western shores of Lake Michigan, Milwaukee has long been recognized
as a city of opportunity for economic growth. As a significant trade harbor, industries of all types flocked here in the early 1800s — from shipping to processing and manufacturing, Milwaukee quickly became a
destination that enabled businesses to thrive and grow.
Spectrum Reach, in partnership with local chambers and associations, continues its support of multicultural-owned businesses through its “Pay It Forward” (PIF) program, committing $15M in advertising and marketing support to help local businesses thrive.

By Al Orr - CEO, Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren
Southeastern Wisconsin is home to a diverse, talented, hard-working, and well-educated workforce. In the current environment, businesses of all sizes and in all industries are challenged to hire and retain the talent they need to fulfill their mission. The result is a frothy jobs market. Employers are raising wages, paying signing and referral bonuses, and offering increasingly flexible work arrangements. And yet, jobs go unfilled. This is true across the country, and it’s true all over the M7 region.
