The CEO CFO Group, a Las Vegas networking group for senior level executives, had their monthly luncheon on Thursday, April 28th. Attended by over 80 Las Vegas business owners and executives–including Mayor Oscar Goodman and his wife Carolyn Goodman–it was another great networking opportunity. Frank Spady, CEO and President, headed the event and kept the crowd entertained.
Mayor Oscar Goodman and Carolyn Goodman
Honored guests Mayor Oscar Goodman and his wife Carolyn Goodman (current candidate for Mayor of Las Vegas) attended and spoke briefly. The “happiest Mayor in the World” was a definite hit with the group.
Carolyn Goodman founded The Meadows School, taking it, with the help of the community, from a blank sheet of paper and building it into one of the finest independent schools in the country. Her candidacy for Mayor of Las Vegas has brought excitement to this upcoming election to replace her husband Mayor Oscar Goodman. Her appearance at the CEO CFO Group was an exceptional treat for all attendees.
