Almost one-third of world’s 7.7 billion people have been born since ’01
Newest generation is less ‘self-centered’ than millennials
According to yesterday’s news from Bloomberg, Millennials are about to be surpassed by Generation Z. Bloomberg reports: Gen Z will comprise 32 percent of the global population of 7.7 billion in 2019, nudging ahead of millennials, who will account for a 31.5 percent share, based on Bloomberg analysis of United Nations data, and using 2000/2001 as the generational split.
IS MYRTLE BEACH READY FOR THIS NEW MARKET?
The Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce’s new C.E.O., Karen Riordan, takes office this month. According to statements made by former C.E.O. Brad Dean to the Puerto Rican press, the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber receives $55 million annually in tax monies to attract new customers to Myrtle Beach.
Riordan previously worked at top creative advertising agencies, including Arnold Worldwide, SmithGifford, Pagano Schenck & Kay, and Hill Holliday in Boston and Washington, D.C. Over the course of her career she has led marketing campaigns for leading tourism brands, including Visit Williamsburg, The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, Amtrak, Choice Hotels International and Celebrity Cruises.
Based on her resume, it appears Mrs. Riordan is ready to take on the challenge of attracting this new American majority group to the area. However, questions remain as to if the city is ready? Or if Mrs. Riordan will be given the authority to truly do her job? As a lawsuit filed by Karen Mitchell exposed, the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber does the majority of its spending with eight crony insider companies. MyrtleBeachSC news continually points out that these companies have a poor track record of producing new customers.
