On Nov 11, 2010, KORR VP of Marketing Julie Kofoed was privileged to attend a reception held in the honor of his Excellence Klaus Scharioth, Germany’s ambassador to the United States. Sponsored by the Salt Lake Chamber of Commerce, the event was hosted by Jake Boyer, Chair of the Board of Governors, and Charles Dahlquist, the honorary Consul for Germany. In his remarks, His Excellency recounted that medical devices are the primary export from Utah to Germany. When questioned about health care in his country, he stated that preventative measures have traditionally been promoted and funded. This trend, he stated, would logically expand to cover obesity treatment, should an effective preventative measure present itself. Julie was honored to meet his Excellence Scharioth and looks forward to future opportunities to strengthen economic relations with Germany.
