Morgan & Pottinger had the honor of being the presenting sponsor of the 2014 Commerce Lexington Kentucky Regional Tour. Commerce Lexington, Inc. organizes the annual two-day tour to give business leaders in the Bluegrass Region an opportunity to learn from our counterparts in other regions of the state. In November, I had the good fortune to tour the Northern Kentucky Region along with two busloads of business leaders.
We kicked off the trip at the Toyota Motor Manufacturing plant in Georgetown, where Emily Cowles, managing director of M&P’s Lexington office, welcomed the participants. Emily reminded the participants of how deeply rooted our firm is in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, primarily serving the banking and finance industry and celebrating our 40th anniversary this year. “Morgan & Pottinger’s legal team spans the borders of Kentucky – practicing from offices in Lexington and Louisville, and now from its newest office in Bowling Green,” said Cowles.
The remainder of the trip was a whirlwind tour of the Northern Kentucky Region. We visited ten different locations throughout northern Kentucky, including Northern Kentucky University, Mazak Corporation, New Riff Distillery, Kentucky Speedway and Elk Creek Vineyards and Hunt Club. At each stop, local officials and business leaders spoke to the participants about the challenges and common issues on which our regions may work together for the betterment of Kentucky.
Overall, this trip was an opportunity to reunite with old friends, make new friends, and learn how the Northern Kentucky Region impacts the business climate in the Bluegrass Region.
