Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) June 09, 2017
Ben Gordon, Managing Partner of BG Strategic Advisors (BGSA), will be speaking at the 15th Annual North American 3PL & Supply Chain Summit next week. The event, which will take place from June 14-16 at Chicago’s Radisson Blu Aqua, is one of North America’s most noteworthy gathering of logistics executives and their manufacturer and retailer counterparts.
Gordon will be the moderator for the deal panel entitled “M&A: The view from the larger 3PLs.” He will be joined by speakers Doug Waggoner, CEO, Echo; John Anderson, Advisory Director, Greenbriar Equity Group; and Tom Madine, CEO, Worldwide Express.
The panel will discuss 2017’s merger and acquisition climate, as well as industry evolutions that are likely to cause large shifts in the 3PL (third-party logistics) sector. Topics will include:
- The future of 3PL consolidation: are assets still “off the deal sheet?”
- Technology-driven M+A: what’s to come in 2017? How will cash streams from new investors affect your 3PL business strategy?
- Buying and selling, navigating the seller’s market, and positioning your business to sell: what are prospective buyers looking for? How can you find acquisition targets with similar goals for guaranteed ROI?
With a career spent building successful supply chain companies, Gordon has advised on over $1 billion worth of supply chain transactions. In addition to his role as Managing Partner at BGSA, he also serves as a Managing Partner at Cambridge Capital LLC, a private equity investment firm in the applied supply chain sector. He’s also the founder of 3PLex, an ecommerce platform enabling business automation for third-party logistics companies.
