Irish Entrepreneurs

August 1, 2019 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 am

Please consider joining the Irish Entrepreneurs Group on Thursday, August 1st at 7:30 am as we explore ways to increase our productivity and performance, both personally and professionally.  Learn about what top business professionals, educators, politicians and athletes leverage to give them the competitive edge and happiness potential.  We’ll start the evening with our usual roundtable introductions followed by a speaker who will provide insight and helpful human practices. Matt Edmonds will be presenting about his journey of becoming one of the owners of Tire Rack.

Biography: Matthew “Matt” Edmonds, Arch ’83 – A transplant to the Midwest, yet always known as a “towny” while attending the University of Notre Dame, I came to South Bend as a 3rd generation native Californian never expecting to stay, met my better half, and never left after graduation. After practicing Architecture for almost 5 years and designing churches coast to coast across this great country, I officially joined the Tire Rack as an “outlaw” in the family business. Now, 31 years later, I am proud to be one of the owners of a company that is class leading in the industry – continuing the spirit of excellence, hard work, integrity and innovation that our patriarch and matriarch Pete and Wilma Veldman, established as a foundation from the very beginning. Celebrating our 40th year, starting from a converted service station in Indianapolis to serving most of the country with next day delivery of tires; we are Tire Rack, Revolutionizing Tire Buying since 1979. What an adventure it has been… … and yes, still a family business.

COST: $5 donation to the Church. No RSVP necessary.
