Proud Magazine 2013 draft

Proud Magazine 2013 – Chamber Round-up


Excitement is a common theme among our Licking County senior executives. Leaders and boards are looking forward into 2013 and liking what they see, even as they make plans to improve both their businesses, and the local setting where they work.


Park National Bank President David Trautman says "We're excited about serving our communities—schools, local government, aid agencies, businesses and families.  Each year, Park bankers supply thousands of volunteer hours to schools and local non-profit groups. In addition, we help businesses grow and residents thrive. We believe banking is a noble profession and we're always excited to share our time and talents with our community, neighbors and friends. Specifically in 2013, we're also looking forward releasing an updated version of our free mobile banking and other enhancements to our electronic systems that help us our customers manage their money with confidence and ease."

In Heath, Mark A. Miklos heads up The Boeing Company's Guidance Repair Center as Acting Center Director. From his work as Chief Engineer & Mission Assurance Manager, he states that they "look forward to continued successful performance supporting the nation's nuclear TRIAD through our contracts to repair the Minuteman guidance systems, Air Force bomber navigations systems and the Navy Trident submarine navigator system.  We are expanding our core businesses with new contracts for the Navy Eletrostatically Supported Gyro (ESG) and the Air Force Air Launched Cruise Missile (ALCM) system.  Our Navy customer recognized Boeing's successful transition of work from California to Heath with a ribbon cutting ceremony at our site in April.  We are proud of our energy conservation efforts that have reduce our consumption by over 11% and passing a major safety milestone of over 500 days without loss time due to employee injury."

Licking County's largest employer, Licking Memorial Health Systems (LMHS), recently added new services that will provide more convenient access to health care for many residents in 2013.  Licking Memorial Urgent Care – Granville opened last fall, and LMHS President & CEO Rob Montagnese explains that its services are perfectly suited for contemporary families' needs.  "Urgent care facilities are designed for patients who have conditions and injuries that are not life-threatening, yet need attention immediately.  Visits to urgent care are, in general, much quicker and less costly than visits to traditional emergency rooms.  Because of these two factors, the Urgent Care – Granville office will transform the way many Licking County families receive much of their medical care."


Licking Memorial Hospital opened a new Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit in January to provide inpatients with individualized plans to treat disabilities caused by illness or injury.  The team-approach to rehabilitation provides convenient, on-site therapy services to help inpatients live as independently as possible upon leaving the Hospital.


Montagnese also notes with pleasure that "Hundreds of Licking County's youth will become more healthy in 2013, thanks to the Active•Fit Program that LMHS and Newark Advocate Media launched last summer.  The program encourages healthy lifestyles for 6- to 12-year-olds by promoting the benefits of exercise, healthy eating and proper rest.  Active•Fit was created as a way for youth and their chosen advisors to set life-long goals for better health."

Susan Krieger, Vice President – Operations for State Farm Insurance observes that "Twenty-twelve has been a tremendous year for State Farm, both in growth and in our work to meet our customers' changing preferences, expectations and needs. We're excited to continue on this path in 2013 as we deliver significant advances in our mobile and online capabilities our customers have requested. Here in Newark, our 1,200 plus employees are focused on making sure every interaction with our customers is a remarkable one."
