About Bruce Merrifield: 
Bruce started his consulting practice for the world of independent distribution channels in January of 1980, after having spent 8 years working for a growth-by-acquisition chain of distribution companies with 300 employees. During his time with that company, he: rose through the ranks; quarterbacked turnarounds for 4 acquisitions; and was the chief operating officer for his last two years.

In 1983, Bruce bought Clark Security Products, a San Diego distributor which then had $7 million in sales. He turned around Clark, installed a high-performance culture and then recapitalized it to put a younger brother in charge in 1989. Clark today has over $150 million in sales and about 350 employees.
