GOOD SAM HIRES NEW ADMINISTRATOR

The Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society recently announced that Brian D. Larsen has been named administrator of Curry Good Samaritan Center effective July 17.

Larsen will be replacing Marcia Bouwman, current administrator.

Larsen will be transferring to Brookings from Waconia, Minn., where he is completing an administrative internship.

A native of Tower, Minn., Larsen earned a bachelors degree in management and sociology from Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minn. He also completed course work for licensure as a long-term care administrator at Mankato State University and St. Cloud University, officials said.

Larsen joined the Good Samaritan Society on Nov. 1 as an administrator-in-training at the Waconia Good Samaritan Center. He also completed an interim assignment at Pleasant View Good Samaritan Center in St. James, Minn.

Prior to joining the society, Larsen worked as a program supervisor for an organization that serves children with developmental disabilities. His employment background also includes positions in the insurance industry. While completing administrative licensure requirements, he also worked as a certified nursing assistant, officials said.

  • Europe rides rebound as global sell-off abates
    World stocks hit a nine-month low on Friday but oil and southern European bonds were off their week's worst levels, as investors began to dust themselves off after one of the most volatile spells in world markets in years. Bourses in London (.FTSE), Frankfurt (.GDAXI) and Paris (.FCHI) started the day up 1 to 1.5 percent and Athens (.ATG) rose 4.5 percent as Greek governments bonds steadied after their worst run since the height of the euro crisis in mid-2012. The possible return to recession in the euro zone, a floundering economy in Japan, slowdown in China and the Ebola virus outbreak have conspired to rattle investors already fretting about the end of years of U.S. It has been a fourth straight week of stock market falls in the U.S.
  • Goldman curbs bankers' compensation even as revenue surges
    Top Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) executives are determined to keep compensation costs under control. On Thursday, Goldman reported a 25 percent increase in quarterly revenue, but the money it set aside for compensation and benefits rose only 18 percent from the same period a year earlier. The amount of money it has set aside for compensation is more or less unchanged, as is the average compensation per employee, at around $320,000 for the first nine months of the year. Sources familiar with the matter inside Goldman Sachs described the restraint as a sign of the shifting mentality about bonuses at the bank: it wants to tightly control compensation, even if it has good quarters with big revenue gains.
  • Google's revenue falls short despite curbing price declines
    Google Inc's revenue fell short of Wall Street's expectations as growth in Internet advertising slowed in the most-recent quarter, offsetting a modest improvement in ad pricing, sending its shares down about 3 percent. Shares of Google fell 2.7 percent to $510.11 in extended trading on Thursday. Google posted $16.52 billion in revenue for the three months ended Sept. 30, compared to $13.75 billion in the year ago period. On Thursday, Google announced it had appointed Omid Kordestani its new chief business officer, replacing Nikesh Arora, who had departed a quarter ago to join Japan's Softbank Corp. The chief business officer is considered a key position, overseeing all the company's revenue-generating activities and serving as a liaison to investors and Wall Street.
