Executive Network Groups

Join a peer group of manufacturing leaders to share and learn about common challenges as well as best practice solutions to achieve profitable growth.

It doesn’t have to be so lonely at the top! DVIRC’s Executive Network Groups provide a unique opportunity for business leaders from various industries to come together in a confidential setting to build a network of trusted business advisors and resources. Our councils can be helpful to leaders of companies experiencing transition, such as substantial growth, succession planning, newly appointed senior leaders, or executives new to the area.

“...being part of this group has challenged me and helped me grow. We all seem to share the same values, but come at things from 15 different angles and it widens our eyes. I’m so thankful.”

“During one of our sessions, I mentioned some energy-related issues and someone in the group had a connection for an energy-savings company. That helped us easily save $100,000 over the year. So the contacts benefit us greatly.”
