Notes from the CEO

Game Changer

Game Changer of the WeekInnovate North State is a public/private partnership driven by CEOs of leading North State businesses that was established in early 2012 to create jobs in the region by specifically focusing resources on helping innovative growth companies succeed.

Their goal is to make the North State the most competitive non-metro region in the US by 2017. We share this vision for the North State and are proudly contributing to this effort.

Last week we where honored as the Game Changer of the Week by our friends at Innovate North State. Our Senior Vice President, Business Development Officer in Chico,  Marcy Sutcliffe, was featured on their website and on the air in radio spots.  We are delighted to play a role in making it possible for business leaders to connect with the resources they need; be that access to capital, or connectivity with other business leaders, we are proud to be a part of this “leading edge” organization.

Thank you to Innovate North State for this recognition.
