What is Emerging Leaders?


It’s a community of young professionals and high-potential individuals looking to develop their leadership skills and professional networks.

Your rising-stars can engage with this network by attending an Emerging Leaders Summit where the curriculum is designed to provide leadership skills and the applied technical know-how they need to make a difference in your company. This energetic group spans the entire MROP channel, bringing together manufacturers, distributors and IMRs from companies large and small. This winning combination exists nowhere else in the industry.

“Emerging Leaders makes us better leaders and helps with continuity of the succession plan as we move into different roles.”
