Industrial Distribution is pleased to announce its first-ever Leadership Summit on Sept. 16-17, 2019. The summit includes a two-day conference schedule surrounding the unveiling of the Big 50, the top 50 U.S. industry suppliers, at a special cocktail reception. The Leadership Summit offers a unique opportunity for distribution professionals to network, connect, and learn together and from one another in a niche environment designed specifically for them! Join us September 16-17, 2019 at the Hilton O’Hare Chicago for this event--collocated with the annual NAW Large CEO Roundtable.
Millions of people experience a merger or acquisition each year. Chances are, you’ve experienced this firsthand. Studies show that 70 to 90 percent of M&A deals fail, despite efforts by senior management executives to kick start growth and success for their companies.
Acquisition frustration happens to everyone, regardless of rank, department, or whether part of a small, large, or family owned business.
Jennifer J. Fondrevay, having been on all sides of the M&A equation, sheds much-needed light on navigating a rapidly changing work environment in her new book, scheduled for release in September just prior to Industrial Distribution’s Leadership Summit.
The book is an invaluable field guide for successfully maneuvering through the “what-the-hell-just-happened and what-does-it-all-mean” confusion on both sides of the M&A deal.
Additional copies of the new book will be available for purchase at the Leadership Summit. There will be an opportunity to meet Jennifer following her September 16 keynote address at a special ‘lunch and learn’ program and at a book signing session in the afternoon.
