About the Event

The Wichita Metro Chamber of Commerce and Wichita Educational Foundation have announced that Wichita native Charles Koch will be the featured guest speaker at the Chamber Annual Meeting on Monday, November 2, 2015. Koch is the Chairman and CEO of Koch Industries, Inc., a position he has held since 1967.

2015 Chamber Chairman Jon Rosell says that the chance for business leaders to hear directly from Koch is a rare opportunity. Koch will answer questions about his newest business book, Good Profit, How Creating Value for Others Built One of the World’s Most Successful Companies. Published by Crown Business, an imprint of the Crown Publishing Group, Mr. Koch’s book is scheduled for release on October 13. More information can be found at goodprofitbook.com.

Rosell said, “Charles Koch has built Koch Industries into one of the largest and most successful companies in the world. We look forward to hearing him elaborate on his value-added business philosophies and practices.”

The evening will include a discussion between Koch and a nationally-known moderator, who will be announced at a later date.

Gary Plummer, President and CEO of the Wichita Metro Chamber of Commerce, said, “Our 2015 Annual Meeting promises to be one of the most unique events we've presented in quite some time, and we’re looking forward to hearing from a globally recognized business leader.”
