Even with improved corporate earnings and a healthy manufacturing output our CEO’s remain vigilant in managing controllable expenses to combat inflationary raw material costs. In facing these challenges chief executives from MCM Capital Partners portfolio companies came together to listen, learn, and better understand how to increase revenue and continue to build shareholder value in our current economic climate at MCM’s 6th Annual Executive Summit held at the Nottingham-Spirk Innovation Center in Cleveland. Each presenter discussed relevant topics chosen with input from our portfolio company executives. The topics discussed over the two day period encompassed current macroeconomic conditions, current trends in social media and e-marketing tactics, continuous sales improvement, and building an effective sales force.
Speakers included Mark Sniderman, Executive Vice President and Chief Policy Officer at the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland, Mark Goren and Greg Thomas from Point to Point Inc., a Cleveland based interactive marketing firm, Keith and Al Strauss from Sales Concepts Inc., a Cleveland based sales and sales management training firm, and Craig Jack, CEO of RMB Products, (current MCM II portfolio company) a manufacturer of highly engineered, high performance thermoplastic solutions for demanding industrial applications.
