Corporate Manager Wants Liberians Take Over Economy

first_imgA Liberian corporate manager has said that in order for Liberia as a nation to make significant inroads among the comity of nations, it must first take possession and control its economy.Archon R. Clinton, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the ARC Investment Incorporated, noted that the business and corporate investment climate of Liberia has over the years solely rested within the domain and purview of foreign entrepreneurs.The young and enterprising business magnate, who has excelled to the peak of corporate managerial level over a relatively short period of time, envisioned that Liberians can progress to the top managerial level within the corporate sector based on sound financial policies and implementations that could enable them be on par with their foreign counterparts.Mr. Clinton, who manages the Archon Reconstruction Company (ARC), located in Gardnersville, related that his Liberian-owned company regulates and supervises the transportation, logistics and maintenance activities of TOTAL Liberia, while the Liberia Coca-cola and Bottling Company (LCCBC) contracted the ARC’s management in 2012 to provide similar services for their entity.The ARC manager intoned that this nation can make progressive economy recovery for speedy development if Liberians are in the vanguard of asserting every effort aimed at striving to have their economy placed in their own hands. He noted sadly that foreign business entrepreneurs are far ahead in the business and economy competition, while some Liberians are still sitting on the fence despite their nation being endowed with immense natural resources.Mr. Clinton lamented that as a struggling youth before he left the country in 1998 for the Netherlands, he was faced with numerous difficulties and challenges, but was determined in his ambition to acquire the requisite skills in order to come back home and contribute his quota to the nation’s post-war reconstruction program.He later established the ARC and its subsidiary, CHAMP Enterprise, through which he has now emerged to play meaning roles in the corporate management sector. Mr. Clinton’s managerial accomplishments also paid-off when the ARC was recently honored by the Africa Watch as the Outstanding Company of the Year 2013-2014.Besides his managerial activities, Mr. Clinton has also contributed to Liberia’s reconstruction program as well as the government of Liberia’s Poverty Reduction Strategy (PRS) program by awarding numerous scholarships to destitute Liberians, who have over the years enrolled in some of the secondary and tertiary institutions in the country. He has also rendered humanitarian services by providing aid to impoverished Liberians.Meanwhile, he has praised the Liberian government for the level of peace and stability, coupled with the existing business atmosphere, which has helped Liberians in their endeavors to rebuild their lives.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Santa Clarita getting 2 new fire stations

first_imgA report given to the Santa Clarita City Council last year said population growth in the valley was outpacing the construction of new fire stations. After the report, officials created a joint city and Fire Department task force to address the problem. Assistant City Manager Ken Striplin, who sits on the task force, said the city’s involvement sped up the construction of the two fire stations. “Working together jointly on this issue has certainly benefited the construction and future construction of fire stations in the Santa Clarita Valley,” he said. The ongoing construction of Fire Station 132 at 29310 Sand Canyon Road in Canyon Country, the one that is opening May 1, is being managed by the city. The county will build the other fire station at 24525 Copper Hill Drive in Saugus. Two development companies have helped provide the space for the two temporary fire stations, Dyer said. The county also receives fees from developers to defray the cost of building fire stations. At the temporary stations, firefighters are housed in double-wide mobile homes and the fire engine is housed in a metal building. By 2010, permanent stations should be built to replace the two temporary ones, and an additional four stations will be built by then, Dyer said. alex.dobuzinskis@dailynews.com (661) 257-5253 SANTA CLARITA – The Fire Department is building two new temporary fire stations in the Santa Clarita Valley to serve the area’s growing population. The valley now has 10 Los Angeles County fire stations and a regular staff of 53 firefighters. The two fire stations the county is building will each have four firefighters per shift, augmenting the number of firefighters in an area that has demanded quicker response times. One of the stations is expected to open May 1. The other station, which the county Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to build, should open on June 1. “It will improve response times to the area and also improve what we call the weight of the attack,” said Michael Dyer, chief deputy of business operations for the county Fire Department. “There will be more fire engines out there to respond to a big, large incident.” last_img read more
