IMARK Hosts Inaugural
Spring Networking Meeting

Bob Smith President and CEO, IMARK Electrical
Steve Ruane vice president, Marketing
Steve Wright Vice President of Supplier Relations
Jill Baker Chief Financial Officer

More than 200 IMARK Electrical member executives attended the IMARK Spring ’24 Networking Meeting in Charlotte, North Carolina from April 3-4.

Networking Groups were set up for owners/presidents, purchasing and operations and sales and marketing leaders.

As always, member distributors face a lot of challenges and opportunities. This event provided a unique and invaluable opportunity to share with and learn from fellow members who are dealing with the same issues, whether in the areas of human resources, applied technology, e-commerce, digital marketing, sales force efficiencies and value-added services—to name just a few.

This meeting reinforced the essential importance of face-to-face communications. The valuable personal connections made will pay big dividends in the years to come.

The Spring ’24 Networking Meeting would not have been successful without the discussion leaders who helmed each group. IMARK Electrical would like to recognize and thank each of the following discussion leaders:
