OEM, Bremer Bank Present $10,000 to Success By 6
S. Mark Tyler, founder and president of OEM Fabricators, Inc. in Woodville, was the featured speaker February 27, 2015 at St. Croix EDC’s 2014 Business of the Year banquet at R&D Catering in New Richmond. Tyler spoke about workforce development in the region and the importance of considering population demographics from birth to retirement. Businesses are struggling to find qualified employees, said Tyler. “Every imaginable short-term solution is being tried, and so far it’s not solving the problem. It’s time to stop looking short-term and solve these problems once and for all.” Tyler underscored the critical need to invest in the future workforce today, ending with the presentation of a $10,000 joint check to Mary Sue Ash, coordinator of United Way Success By 6, from OEM Fabricators, Inc. and Bremer Bank CEO Dan Draxler.
