18 Graduate from Triple S Executive Development Program

Billerica, MA - Triple S recently concluded two Executive Development Programs with 18 executives achieving Awards of Excellence. The Executive Development Program is a hands-on educational program specifically designed for the next-generation leaders of independent distribution companies.

"Our industry is dominated by family businesses and ensuring their longevity is essential. The goal of this program is to provide all our Member-Distributor next-generation leaders with the tools to thrive in the next decade, and through a small class size to build a community that supports one another in the future”, said Eric Flinton, President..

"Independent business owners are often out on an island on their own. They work so hard to react to their customers demands, grow sales, improving processes and profitability, Often working so much “in the business” and sometimes challenged to work 'on their business!' This group of individuals - 2nd, 3rd and even 4th generations leaders - invested their time, energy and emotional fortitude to improve themselves and their business", said Kevin Chow, VP Member Services and Program Leader.

"I want to thank and congratulate each of them for their commitment, drive and friendship in completing this program. If you want to learn more about the results they achieved or what they learned from the SSS Executive Development Program, I encourage you to take some time to reach out to the participants themselves," continued Chow.
