CEOs from millwork firm Mission Bell Manufacturing, United Cabinet's Tru Cabinetry unit, and ACProducts' Master Woodcraft Cabinetry will examine rationales behind capital investment in production operations at the 2019 Executive Briefing Conference. The high level management event takes place April 14-16 at the San Jose Marriott, in the heart one of the most innovative regions in the U.S., Silicon Valley.
The panel will take place the afternoon of April 16 at the San Jose Marriott, following more than 15 presentations on management and business operations by wood industry leaders. Sessions at EBC 2019 will emphasize workforce development and the relationship of employees to technology. The CEO panel will look at constraints that limit investment, as wells as opportunities where investment can make predictable returns, and the balance between investing in workforce and personnel development versus technology.
Panelist Glenn Ripley is CEO and President of Mission Bell Manufacturing, the largest architectural millwork firm in Northern California, will particpate in the panel the day after hosting an open and plant tour for EBC attendees. Under Ripley's leadership, the company has experienced dramatic growth in revenue, significantly increased profitability, and more than quadrupled its share value. Named Morgan Hill Business of the Year and NCEO Innovator of the Year, Mission Bell is a recognized "Great Place to Work." In 2017 Glenn led the process for Mission Bell to become a certified California Benefits Corporation, with the stated purpose of being a "force for good" for its employees, shareholders, and the community.
