The M & A show, haven’t we seen this before?
In this episode, we cover the latest M&A news and also go back to the late 90s and mid-2000s to see how things have changed (or not). We have a special guest, Gary Henderson of Solution Sales,  who was part of the first wave of mergers. We discuss what went on back then and what we are seeing now. The same challenges are present now that were there in the last 90’s, so what is different this time?

Is Covid coming back again and do we need to worry about it?

In this episode Mark and I cover all of the new Covid variants as well as the unique names some are being given. We talk about what we need to worry about and also the changes that have taken place since early 2020. We talk a bit about electrostatic sprayers and Victory going out of business. As we have said in the past they are just expensive sprayers. Watch or listen to the show for all of the details.

We have a special guest with us this week, Dianna Steinbach the COO of the NAW (National Association of Wholesalers/Distributors). We talk about business trends from large multi billion dollar wholesalers and smaller.

We discuss what is NAW? What are the key elements that they help members with? Why should someone want to join NAW? What kind of companies or organizations would benefit from NAW and much more. It was great connecting back up with Dianna. Mark and I have a long history of working with her when she was with ISSA.
