Business Casual is a place to expand the conversation on the wide world of Wichita business. We’ll tell you what we think and hope you’ll do the same.
Dan Loving moved to Wichita in 1996. In that time, he has seen his beloved Missouri State Bears win ONE basketball game at Koch Arena. He has been The Eagle’s business editor since 2008, after previously serving as assistant business editor and working in Sports and Presentation before that. He also has worked at newspapers in Missouri, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Reach Dan at 316-269-6706 or email@example.com.
Carrie Rengers joined The Eagle’s Business team in 2002 despite her inability to even balance a checkbook. Fortunately for her, and readers, her Have You Heard? column is about business scoops and contains lots of news but almost no math. Reach Carrie at 316-268-6340 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jerry Siebenmark joined The Eagle’s Business team in 2006 to harass columnist Carrie Rengers. When he’s not pestering Rengers, he’s writing about the area’s banks and financial services companies. Reach Jerry at 316-268-6576 or at email@example.com.
Bill Wilson joined the Business team in 2006 and covers commercial, residential and retail real estate. He considers online banking one of the great advances of the past quarter-century, after Carrie Rengers screwed up his checkbook. Now, if Bob Stoops would just win a BCS bowl game. Reach Bill at 316-268-6290 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Molly McMillin has covered aviation and aerospace for The Eagle so long, people assume she is a pilot. She isn’t — at least not yet. An Eagle reporter since 1995, Molly is taking flying lessons in hopes of obtaining a private pilot’s license. Reach Molly at 316-269-6708 or email@example.com.
Dan Voorhis has been with The Eagle since 1995 and a business reporter since 2001. He is pursuing an MBA at Wichita State so he won’t have time to work on his creaky 98-year-old house or his creaky 17-year-old car. He writes about economic development, the economy, demographic trends and other geeky stuff. Reach Dan at 316-268-6577 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Karen Shideler joined The Eagle’s Business team in 2008 and writes about health care. She’s been covering health long enough that colleagues sometimes ask for medical advice — which she doesn’t give. Nor does she always practice what she preaches about eating right and exercising. Reach Karen at 316-268-6674 or email@example.com.
Rick Plumlee became a business reporter in August 2008 to raise the age level — not necessarily the maturity level — of the biz team. He has been with The Eagle since 1975, all of which were spent in sports except as a news reporter in 1978. He covers agriculture, energy and small business. Reach Rick at 316-268-6660 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
