Business acquisition is an attractive option for business owners seeking increased market share. While a successful acquisition can positively impact the bottom line, a poorly planned acquisition can greatly damage a company’s brand and leave the business in a worse position. Approaching an acquisition must be done with thoughtful consideration and counsel. The following questions are important to consider before considering the acquisition of another business.
Earlier this year, Ron Garrison, MATA’s president and CEO, caught the attention of public officials to approve the funding for new buses. Since coming on board in the fall of 2014, he led the effort to improve staffing capability, find new funding sources, improve on-time performance, decrease maintenance costs and get trolleys back on the rails. MATA had been “doing more with less than just about transit system in the country,” Garrison said. But he isn’t interested in just making do. 
It takes a network to get a job, said Dr. Glen Fenter, president of the Greater Memphis Alliance for a Competitive Workforce (GMACWorkforce). They have built a networked environment to share information among all workforce stakeholders and the job seekers they serve. Built on the Workbay platform developed by Mary Hayes, president of Memphis-based Workbay LLC, this common database and mobile app will roll out this fall to make job seeking, job training and job recruitment easier to access.
We’re one month away from the saccharin splendor of Valentine’s Day, and in offices across this great country, Cupid’s bow is pulled tight, ready to loose romance on the unsuspecting.

However, not all of these moments end like Jerry McGuire. Sometimes Cupid’s arrow misses its mark with disastrous consequences.
Elvis Presley Enterprises is upping the ante to make Graceland bigger and better. October saw the opening of The Guest House at Graceland, a full service, 450-room $92 million hotel. In March, a new $40 million, 220,000 square-foot visitor complex will open, replacing the existing 47,000 square-foot facility.
Kayla Rodriguez Graff thrives on activity, and these days the young entrepreneur is on fire. 
Her considerable energies are focused on her work as COO of a startup with a cool product and her passion for Memphis, blended in with her recent marriage and membership in SoundCheck, where she recently joined the leadership team.
Online advertising can do incredible things for your small business, but only if you are willing to put in the time it takes to analyze the data and refine your efforts. But how can you make the most of your time?
Henry A. Hutton and Thomas Hutton, Jr. have their sights set on taking care of business for Memphis. 
At the beginning of the year, we outlined the Greater Memphis Chamber's objectives for growing our city's middle class, increasing receipts for minority & women-owned businesses and creating higher enrollment for workforce training key sectors.

Today, we'd like to highlight some of the ways our team met these goals and others these past 12 months:
