JIM GRAVEN JOINS SEMA DATA CO-OP

Positioned for the Future

The Internet, data and industry consolidation have greatly impacted the role of manufacturer agents and how this critical segment delivers value for manufacturers, warehouse distributors (WDs) and accounts. These issues require a progressive Select Committee that will approach council business with a long-term vision to provide the council membership with sustainable solutions. A necessary step in assuring future viability is building a group of volunteers who are committed and willing to ask the hard questions. Through the recent Select Committee elections, the Manufacturers’ Rep Council (MRC) has solidified its foundation with the reelection of four incumbents.
