He currently serves as Armada’s economic analyst and works with professional associations including serving as the Chief Economist for the National Association for Credit Management and resides on the Board of Advisors for their global division – Finance, Credit and International Business.

UID in-a-Day: As always we are proud to bring you the best of the University of Innovative Distribution (UID) with 90-minute sales sessions featuring Don Buttrey and Mike Marks, tackling the topics of sales and business strategy, respectively. UID Sessions are held in the morning and afternoon on Monday, September 25th. 

New this year, we are excited to introduce a Joint FPDA/ISD Business Meeting featuring a panel of industry leaders based on NAW and IBM's recent trend report, “Facing the Forces of Change: Navigating the Seas of Disruption.” Following our separate business meetings on Tuesday morning, September 26th, IBM’s Distributor Expert will facilitate a panel of our own Fluid Power and Sealing Distribution Leaders while answering your most pressing questions around disruption. Today is a time of great change and even greater opportunity for wholesaler-distributors - this is a do not miss session. 

And as you can see from Mike Rayburn's video, he is full of enthusiasm to serve as our Closing Keynote presenter. His musical summary of our Summit’s programming will offer a “What If” experience for maximizing opportunity and performance!

This year’s Summit promises to be one of the most exciting and robust programming in some time. Starting our Nashville experience, the Opening Networking Reception will be held at the renowned Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, which will include a tour of the Museum!

You won’t want to miss our (optional Black Tie) Gala & Closing Party with great live music (of course)! Following a sit down dinner, attendees will enjoy photo opportunities and dancing the evening away to one of Nashville's hottest bands!

Thank You To Our 2017 Sponsors!
