Former Employee - Distribution Sales in Walnut Creek, CA
Former Employee - Distribution Sales in Walnut Creek, CA
Approves of CEO

Pros

Prior focus on all customers and local branch needs not just the holy trinity / 3 top national accounts

Cons

Over weight on the investment Central brands to the detriment of the distribution vendor partner products that are proven winners.
Spending millions on propective aquisitions but nothing to show for it, dump the flat tires in this department and pull the trigger on something, anything. Its not rocket science.

Advice to Management

After the guru's grand plan fails, get back to serving the customer needs which built the company to this size in the first place.Not what overpriced CGP brands you want them to need. The elimination of distribution will leave CGP with branded only products that are not of quality, over priced and can be replaced by competitive products.
