Roundtables will provide an opportunity to network and discuss the most pertinent issues facing EMS leaders.

“The EMS Leadership Summit provides a unique opportunity for EMS leaders to identify common opportunities and challenges and to discuss solutions with peers,” said Tracy Riggan, senior director, business development at IPC. “This collaboration allows new and seasoned EMS leaders to build knowledge that they can take back to their companies and share with their staff.”

Caleb Townsend is the co-founder of Factur, a new kind of recruiting agency that specializes in filling marketing and sales positions. I met with Caleb at SMTA Dallas and asked him to discuss the creative ways he’s helping contract manufacturers to practice Lean principles in their sales department.
