The automotive industry has been very good for West Michigan, in spite of the challenges that it has dished up for component suppliers over the last several decades. 

Editor’s note:
 
After more than 13 years of writing the Auto Focus column for MiBiz, Melissa Anderson plans to retire as a columnist, effective immediately, as she winds down her storied career in automotive analysis and research. In the short term, she and her husband plan to travel in the Southern Hemisphere. “I have enjoyed writing the column and it has been a good long run,” Anderson said. Anderson’s business intelligence on the automotive industry will be missed. “Melissa was our ideal business columnist because she was able to talk with a lot of knowledge about trends in the global automotive industry while also providing a lot of local context, examples and data,” said MiBiz Publisher Brian Edwards. MiBiz will continue its search for a new automotive/manufacturing columnist throughout the coming months.

Don’t believe the Mayans

Happy 2012. While the Mayans are predicting really bad things for this year, we’re actually pretty bullish on the economy and opportunities for growth over the next 357 days.  Maybe it’s because we’ve been listening to local executives, economists and business owners rather than consulting a 5,125-year calendar. Whatever the reason, we’re glad to be off and running with our first edition of the New Year.
