If you tune in to the 2014 State of the Union address tonight, you might see a familiar face in the crowd. Peter Mouskondis, President of Utah's Nicholas and Company, was invited by First Lady Michelle Obama to attend the event, and will take a seat near Michelle Obama, Dr. Jill Biden, and others.
In a statement Mouskondis said, "Our success at Nicholas & Company is directly related to our family-friendly approach and the work of my grandmother, mother and wife in making work-life balance an essential part of our culture."
Peter will be joined in Michelle Obama's box by NBA veteran Jason Collins and Boston Marathon bombing survivors Carlos Arredondo and Jeff Bauman.
Nicholas & Company, a 75-year-old Salt Lake-based food distribution company, was founded in 1939 by Nicholas Mouskondis and will open a new distribution center in Las Vegas, Nevada this year.
