    These same efforts have been ongoing in the state’s capital city as well.

    “GO Topeka is pleased to be a partner once again in bringing the fifth annual Financial Services Summit to our capital city.” said Matt Pivarnik, president & CEO of the Greater Topeka Partnership. “We work to cultivate a business climate that supports both new and existing companies in our financial services and insurance sectors, while supporting the workforce attraction, recruitment and retention needs of our business partners and we look forward to continuing that growth and support.”
