Conway Corp Board of Directors Chair Johnny Adams announced plans for the Arnold Innovation Center at the Conway Area Chamber of Commerce Annual Meeting held last night at the University of Central Arkansas.
The center is named in honor of retiring Conway Corp CEO Richard Arnold and will be a destination for entrepreneurs to connect with one another while having access to necessary resources to create, launch and grow businesses.
“The facility will become the epicenter of Conway’s startup community,” Adams said. “With plans for co-working space, leasable office suites and seminar facilities, the Arnold Innovation Center will provide a continuum of space for Conway startups as they grow.”
Arnold began working at Conway Corp in 1978 in the data processing department and was named the company’s fifth CEO in 1998. He will retire from that position on June 1.
“Richie’s leadership has positioned Conway as a creative hub for entrepreneurs,” Adams said. “The Arnold Innovation Center will feature the latest in technology and provide a venue for developers, students and the wider community to engage directly with Conway Corp’s latest infrastructure upgrades, business tools and fastest digital data technology available.”
