  • A Closer Look: Mark Lowe
    Friday, October 20, 2017 6:00 AM
    Mark Lowe gets in trouble with his wife, Linda, for exercising too much (he competes in marathons and triathlons). Because he works out so much, he has turned to yoga to help his 51-year-old body recover faster. He gets in trouble for the time that takes, too.

    Iowa businesses that have hired at least one refugee seem to be far more likely to hire more in the future. That’s my big takeaway from attending an employer panel that was part of the 2017 Refugee Summit earlier this month.

  • The Elbert Files: Politics on TV gives comfort

    Greater Des Moines is booming. We’re the fastest-growing city in the Midwest, and population projections have our region on pace to eclipse 1 million residents by 2040. But with lightning population growth comes a variety of challenges: Infrastructure could be strained, resources might become scarce, workforce demographics will shift, leaders will change, city identities and politics will evolve, and, gulp, you might even find yourself stalled in traffic on your way to work. In advance of our sold-out panel discussion on Oct. 25, we asked each panelist to list what challenge they think business leaders should be thinking about as our region grows to 1 million people by 2040. Some challenges they identified are already being felt. We’re looking forward to a discussion that helps ensure the region and business community are positioned to continue their momentum in a sustainable way that allows us to keep our strengths and core identity while being resilient in the face of changes to come.

    Friday, October 20, 2017 6:00 AM
    Many people would probably consider it outrageous for a manager to ask an African-American employee during a company meeting to share with his co-workers what his race is like, or for a manager to suggest that an older worker should lead a seminar describing the characteristics of the boomer generation.

    With the Outlets of Des Moines opening Friday, I thought it would be a good idea to check in with Mike Whalen, whose family business started the Prairie Crossing development near Interstate 80 and U.S. Highway 65 in Altoona where the 300,000-square-foot shopping mecca is located.

  • NOTEBOOK: Annie’s Irish Pub could get a whole new look, or maybe not
    Thursday, October 19, 2017 6:00 AM
    Annie Baldwin says this item is not news, so the Business Record decided to drop it in our Notebook. Baldwin is the co-owner of Annie’s Irish Pub (formerly Mickey’s), which takes up some indoor and outdoor space at the northwest corner of Court Avenue and Third Street in downtown Des Moines.
