Chancellor James Schmidt has been a visible figure in the Chippewa Valley business community, making dozens of visits to area businesses during his first year in UW-Eau Claire's top leadership post. At right, Schmidt visits Orgel Wealth Management in Altoona. Samir Murty, left, managing director and principal, and Mark Orgel, the firm’s chairman and founder, look on as Schmidt shows some Blugold Spirit through the use of technology in the firm’s conference room.
