Des Moines was rated the best place for young professionals, one of the best places to do business and was recently named the wealthiest city in America.

It’s safe to say that Des Moines is on a roll.  The man in charge of selling the city as a great place to live and do business is the Greater Des Moines Partnership CEO Jay Byers.

Byers sat down with Channel 13’s Dan Winters to spend Three Minutes in the Chair.

Byers said the partnership is about to launch a new initiative with the Des Moines Music Coalition.  He said there is no reason why Des Moines cannot one day have a live music scene similar to Austin or Nashville.
