NAW Large Company CEO/COO Roundtable 2017

September 26th-27th, 2017 at the O’Hare Hilton

“Any CEO will find great value in the NAW Large Company CEO Round Table in three ways. Getting away from day-to-day and having the time to think. Learning from expert presenters on topics important to distribution CEO’s. Learning from, and networking with, fellow CEO’s from non-competing companies who share the same problems and have great ideas. We have a community that can help each other add value for our companies. And, the NAW makes it all happen efficiently and at a high level, both professionally and personally.”
Bruce Zwicker, President & CEO,  J J Haines & Co Inc
