Recap: 2023 AD Finance, HR & IT Summit

Almost 200 people from AD member and service provider companies across various industries and multiple countries gathered in St. Louis.

Nearly 200 people from AD member and service provider companies across various industries and countries recently gathered in St. Louis, Missouri, for the independent distributor organization’s 2023 Finance, HR & IT Summit.

The summit — which was held from July 19 to 21 — focused on cross-functional collaboration and best practice sharing, AD said.

“Across finance, HR and IT, our industries constantly shift and require us to stay up to date on the newest trends and opportunities available to us,” said Drew Moyer, AD’s Chief Financial Officer. “This forum is instrumental in helping our community learn from each other and collaborate, and our members find great value sharing ideas with their peers in other distribution segments.”

The summit included breakout sessions with a diverse range of topics across finance, HR and IT. The event gave attendees choices in their areas of expertise, as well as opportunities to branch out to fields of interest to them.

“Popular session topics included artificial intelligence, data analytics, the impacts of inflation and supply chain disruptions, data analytics, cybersecurity, recruitment trends, understanding a new generation of workers, employee upskilling, and employee experience,” AD said.
