Chamber luncheon speakers: 'We're not leaving here'

Kontoor Brands expressed a commitment to the Triad speaking before business leaders last week.

GREENSBORO, N.C. — As he wrapped up remarks that were part company update and part positive outlooks on both his organization and the city of Greensboro, Kontoor Brands President and CEO Scott Baxter looked at the crowd of about 800 and asked, “Where else in the United States can you go to a chamber meeting and everybody is wearing your product?”

The occasion was the annual Greensboro Chamber of Commerce dinner-turned-luncheon on Wednesday at Koury Convention Center. 

The event was moved to midday because of a schedule conflict with the U.S. Figure Skating at the Greensboro Coliseum.
