Chamber of Commerce, Circle of Champion Luncheon
MHP Partners and staff celebrate with Gus Fleischli at the recent Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce, Circle of Champion luncheon. Mr. Fleischli was recognized by the Chamber for his service to the community and keen business sense by making him part of its "Circle of Champions." Gus shared many of his life and business stories. This recognition was extra special to McGee, Hearne & Paiz because of our long time relationship with Gus and his business interests.
Mike McGee, who retired from MHP just over six years ago, became a very close friend of Gus' and has worked with Gus on many projects over the years. The activities have included business, civic and social activities, such as organizing the Wyoming Honor Flight program which has taken over 600 of Wyoming's WWII veterans to Washington DC to see the WWII and other memorials. "Gus is probably the most loyal person I've ever met. He did a tremendous job of spearheading the Honor Flight program, including keeping me in line." shared McGee.
Jim Hearne who just recently retired from MHP added, "Gus has always been a business and civic leader. His pleasant, easy manner as well as his varied base of knowledge and advice, whether around the rodeo grounds or downtown at work, is impressive. I have had the opportunity to admire, enjoy and work with Gus from afar and close up. Gus and I have especially shared a love of rodeo and Cheyenne Frontier Days. We have shared many experiences in the arena at CFD – Gus on horseback and me in front of the bucking chutes."
Ken Dugas' first introduction to Mr. Fleischli was right after he started with the firm in 1981. "My first assignment was the audit of Fleischli Oil Company. I remember being so impressed with the success of the business and the knowledge of the people I worked with at Fleischli."
Pat McGuire who retired from MHP this year also, included, "Along with all those who have recognized and admired Gus's accomplishments, I have seen his consistent and significant support for Cheyenne, UW, the State and it's veterans over the 30 years that I have known him."
