Adam Fein on Surviving the Recession

February 2, 2009

On his blog, Pembroke Consulting's Adam Fein gives us his take based on his experiences at the National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors meeting last week on how the best companies are surviving the recession."
He says:
"As I see it, the winners are those companies with the will, the skill, and the till to survive this recession. Here are some specific ideas I heard from executives at the wholesaler-distributors that are growing faster (or shrinking more slowly) than competition."
His ideas: Work harder, enforce profit discipline, stay connected, acquire distressed competitors, and keep perspective (ie, things will turn around).
Read more on each of these ideas at his blog, Distribution Trends."
