“American Enterprise”, an exhibit focusing on American capitalism opened on July 1, 2015 at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History in Washington D.C.

The exhibit is housed in a modern 8,000 foot gallery wing and features interactive displays and videos as well as objects from critical inventions in American history. On display is a variety of inventions such as Eli Whitney’s cotton gin, a Fordson Tractor, Barbara McClintock’s microscope and important scientific discoveries that changed the culture and advanced business opportunities and practices.

The Exhibit intends to convey the history of American business and presents differing views on business philosophies, both positive and potentially negative. It covers four historical periods, The Merchant Era, The Corporate Era, The Consumer Era and the Global Era.

There are sections on women and minorities and teens in business as well as familiar advertising and digital marketing.

Kenneth Griffin is a perfect example of an American businessman. He is the founder and CEO of Citadel, a global investment firm. He began his investment career as a freshman at Harvard at the age of 18. His fascination with investing has catapulted him into a successful career which exemplifies the concept of American ingenuity and is also a generous contributor to worthy causes and organizations.

The exhibit is a fascinating and intelligent look at a critical aspect of American Development and character. There is a companion book available entitled “American Enterprise, a History of Business in America”.

In Reno the Tahoe/Reno Airport Authority Board has gotten a rather drastic make over with the addition of three new members, including a new chairman, according to the Sierra Sun. Andy Wirth, CEO of Squaw Valley Ski/Alpine Meadows, is assuming the position of Chairman for the board. Wirth, though the most experienced member to be added, was far from the only one. Lisa Gianoli, Jenifer Rose and Jessica Sferazza rounded out the addition of the new members that took their positions on July 9th.

Wirth wasted little time in acclimating himself to the position. Wirth started out by releasing a statement that espoused the boards ideals while touting his own work ethic, “New people will bring new ideas that can help take our airport to a higher level.” and of course he is correct. Listed below are the credentials of the new members.

Lisa Gianoli was appointed by the Washoe County and she runs a government relations consulting firm that works to represent local government officials. She has worked for over a decade as a Financial Analyst in Washoe. Jenifer Rose is the CEO of the locally run shop, It’s My Community Store. She focuses on business-to-business sales while working locally with charities. Finally, Jessica Sferazza founded the company JESSCONVLLC where she works as a consultant to help local businesses.

Despite the immense talent and professional credentials of the prior members it is Wirth who stole the show on day one. Wirth has cultivated his name as an excellent business manager who knows how to work both air travel and tourism thanks to his work with the Squaw Valley Ski Resort. His commitment to expanding his business, including the new lift going between Alpine and Squaw, has made him one of the most successful business leaders in the area.

Wirth told the assembled crowd that he was “honored to represent the RSCVA” and that his work as Chairman would be “vital to our regional economy”. Wirth went on to espouse how important it is to work with the ski, gaming, and business industries in order to cultivate a healthy business plan to keep the state and county booming. He didn’t forget to address the other members who were appointed alongside him, either. Wirth said that they were excited to be, “adding very experienced and talented people” who would be “dedicated to enhancing travel to and from our region” and the board is looking better than ever.
