More than two hundred local business and community leaders gathered at the Winspear Opera House in downtown Dallas for the Chairman’s Dinner. Jointly hosted by the Dallas Regional Chamber and Hilti North America, participants enjoyed dinner on the stage of the opera house and a keynote address from Roger Staubach, Executive Chairman – Americas, JLL. Other featured speakers included Prof. Dr. Pius Baschera, Speaker of the Martin Hilti Family Trust and member of the Board of Directors of the Hilti Group and Heinrich Fischer, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Hilti Group.
The event comes on the heels of Hilti’s two-year relocation to North Texas and organized to thank area business leaders who have welcomed the company to the community.
“A relocation can often be a challenge for a company as well as team members and their families,” said Avi Kahn, President and CEO of Hilti North America. “The Dallas Regional Chamber, the city and local leaders have made us feel welcomed and at home. They have been instrumental in our move and integration to the Dallas Region.”
Dale Petroskey, President and CEO of the Dallas Regional Chamber said, “Dallas has become a destination of choice for companies around the world looking for a vibrant business climate and great quality of life in a dynamic and affordable market. We’re so glad that Hilti North America made the decision to join us here. They have been a wonderful addition, and our business community is better for it.”
The evening ended with the Moody Foundation Chandelier saluting the upcoming 2017-2018 Broadway series with music and lights.
