Hundreds Gather for Greater Cleveland Middle Market Forum
Hundreds of middle-market companies gathered on April 25 for the Greater Cleveland Middle Market Forum.
The morning kicked off with the state of the middle-market presented by Tom Stewart from the National Center for the Middle-Market. The first quarter of 2018 is showing a steady rate of growth in revenue, employment and confidence in the local and global economy. Talent is the #1 challenge facing these companies. It is becoming more difficult to recruit and retain quality employees.
Immediately following the Stewart’s presentation, Robert J. Jackson, Jr., Commissioner of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), shared his inaugural address with the crowd.
The breakout sessions covered three topics critical for leaders to understand to run a successful business in the current economy: taxes, workforce and technology.
The day concluded with a panel of local craft brewing leaders discussing collaboration, strategic vision and what’s next in the industry.
