LONDON, Ont. — The Driving for Profit seminar series is coming back to Mississauga this spring, according to event organizers.
The event, scheduled to take place at the Capitol Banquet Centre April 3, will feature Wendell Erb, president and CEO of the Erb Group of Companies, discussing the triumphs, trials, and tribulations of his company as part of the series’ ongoing “How We Did It” session.
Also featured will be Doug Nix, vice-chairman Corporate Finance Associates, and Doug Davis, independent director of Pro-Trans Ventures, leading a session on mergers and acquisitions.
Truck News editorial director Lou Smyrlis will moderate both sessions, with ATBS Canada CEO Ray Haight acting as Master of Ceremonies for the event.
“We are thrilled to be kicking off the 2012 edition of Driving for Profit with an exciting lineup,” said Aaron Lindsay of NAL insurance, partner of the Driving for Profit series. “Erb Transport, for decades, has literally defined a trucking industry segment – LTL refrigerated freight. We are honoured to have Wendell join us to share the Erb story and give us some insight into developing and refining competitive advantage.
“Further, we are excited to have Doug Nix and Doug Davis provide us with a timely perspective on the state of current M&A market in Canadian transportation.”
