Senior Leadership/Executive

Manufacturers’ Executive Council (MEC)


Executives helping executives.

Manufacturers’ Executive Councils (MECs) are exclusive groups of 8-10 business owners, CEOs and general managers; exclusively from non-competing CME manufacturer member companies.

Members meet one half day per month in a facilitated forum to share ideas, learn from each other’s experiences and solve problems through peer-group mentoring. These unique forums increase profitability and competitiveness by drawing on the strengths of experienced, like-minded owners and CEOs.
