Laird Noble Sanders proud to be Henderson Chamber member for 18 years
HENDERSON, Nev. – Laird Noble Sanders won’t buy coffee locally from a business that’s not a member of the Henderson Chamber of Commerce. Ever.
To Sanders, the idea that business isn’t personal is an antiquated concept. To this Henderson businessman, business is – and always will be – personal. As a member of the Henderson Chamber of Commerce for the last 18 years, Sanders is the organization’s chief cheerleader. He’s also a champion for happy business owners in his community, which is why it’s not uncommon for chamber members to receive pastries or to hear him reassure them with his signature line, “you’re the best.”
