CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The Charleston Rotary Club got a chance to hear from one of the leaders in Silicon Valley on Monday, a West Virginia native.
Brad Smith, a Marshall University graduate, executive board chair of Intuit and chair of Nordstrom spoke to the club members on the importance of entrepreneurship and education, and how those two should intertwine to push West Virginia into the future.
“I think we are at the intersection today between our historical accomplishments as a state and a tremendous opportunity ahead,” Smith told MetroNews. “The path forward is going to be education and entrepreneurship. We spent time talking about those two things.”
Smith, who was born in Huntington and grew up in Kenova, was the CEO of Intuit
