LA CROSSE, Wis. -- Former Northern Engraving President and owner Charles Gelatt will open Viterbo University’s 2004-05 Brown Bag lunchtime discussion series at noon Tuesday, Sept. 28 in room 107 of the D.B. and Marge Reinhart Center.
The four-part series entitled “The Ethical Business: Learning from the Past, Preparing for the Future” features local business owners discussing the values that go into operating a business for the long term and the benefits that accrue to the community and future generations.
“We are very fortunate to have many businesses in La Crosse that have demonstrated a real commitment to making our community a good place to live,” said Rick Kyte, director of the D.B. Reinhart Institute for Ethics in Leadership. “The business leaders who will be speaking at this year’s Brown Bag Series are people who are able to share from their own experiences how operating a business according to sound ethical principles is a key component of successful businesses and flourishing communities.”

Northern Engraving was founded in 1908 and today serves clients throughout the United States and internationally, providing customers with a variety of metal and plastic nameplates.

The four-part Brown Bag Series schedule continues:

  • Oct. 20 with Jack and Mark Glendenning of Inland Group
  • Feb. 1 with Paul Fuchsel of La Crosse Sign Company
  • March 16 with Phil and Lyle Quillin of Quillin’s IGA

The Brown Bag Series is sponsored by the D.B. Institute for Ethics in Leadership, the Dahl School of Business, and Viterbo University. The events are free and open to the public. People attending the event are invited to bring their own lunch or they may purchase a box lunch for $5.
