Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) February 15, 2013
The economy and the Dallas business climate were discussed Tuesday between SSG’s president and CEO, Steve Steinheimer, and the panelists at the Texas Tech Quarterly Business Briefing at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children in Dallas.
“We were hit hard during the dot-com bust of 2001 and the downturn of the Telecom Corridor,” Steinheimer said, “but we have seen nothing but growth in the technology industry since 2007. We’re hiring for both of our practices in the Dallas and Denver areas. Last year was significant for us in terms of investment and growth, and we plan to continue our expansion throughout 2013 and beyond.”
Steinheimer was one of five panelists at the briefing and provided insights from the technology industry. Perspectives from the healthcare, government, banking and real estate industries were brought by Sharon Ellis, the CFO of Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children; Paula Blackmon, the chief of staff for Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings; Tom Montgomery, the managing partner of Montgomery Coscia Greilich; and Scott Rohman, the president of 42 Real Estate.
The panelists also discussed labor plans and the business opportunities Dallas holds. Steinheimer, who is the chairman of Texas Tech University’s industrial engineering Industrial Advisory Board (IAB), believes local colleges present promising possibilities for SSG’s billing and revenue management and data management practices.
“We’re beginning an initiative to partner with several local universities,” Steinheimer said. “Not only are we interested in hiring recent graduates, we also hope to serve in advising roles to help prepare students for jobs in the technology industry.”
