For Wholesale/Distribution CEOs Only

Take Your Company to the Next Level with CEN

The Distribution Industry is Changing Rapidly

Don't navigate it alone.

Our Wholesale and Distribution CEO members face a host of unique challenges including upstream and downstream consolidation, online competitive price transparency, new automation technologies, rising labor costs, better use of data/AI and more.

CEN's wholesale/distribution CEO members share with each other the technologies, processes and approaches that are working for them (and which have not).  This sharing of ideas, best practices, benchmarks and advice with non-competitors who understand the distribution business ensures each member gets value from each meeting.

Here are a few samples of topics our Wholesale/Distribution members have discussed at recent meetings:

  • Using Automation to Increase Sales and Social Media Marketing
  • New Thoughts on the “Amazon Effect”
  • Senior Team Development and Succession Planning
  • Culture Development Within a Company
  • Effective Communication Throughout the Organization
  • Processes for Working on, Rather than in, the Business

Proven ROI: Don’t Take Our Word for It

“When another CEO was discussing his bank line of credit, I discovered that I was paying 75 basis points more than the lowest rates (3/4 of 1% per year). The other CEOs gave me the names of their bankers who lend to our sector and offered to make introductions. When I went back to my bank and said I was going to be leaving and why — my local bank cut my interest rate by a whole point to retain my business. This was worth over $300,000 per year — over $2 million during the life of the loan.”
