CVSN Announces Second Speaker For Fall Summit

Todd Buchholz is an experienced and dedicated keynote speaker and media personality who is noted for his candid demeanor and well-researched arguments on a broad variety of topics.

President Andy Robblee and the board of directors of the Commercial Vehicle Solutions Network (CVSN) have released the name of the second speaker for the Aftermarket Distribution Summit this September at Chateau Elan Winery Resort and Spa in Braselton, Georgia.

Acclaimed author, former White House economic policy director and economist Todd Buchholz will be speaking at CVSN’s Summit in September, connecting the dots between local and global markets, the politics that define business environments and the people who drive it all.

In his speeches, Buchholz draws on years of research into financial topics ranging from housing finance to fast-food lawsuits to the influence of competition on our lives as working members of society, from “Rush: Why You Need and Love the Rat Race.” His work in historical economics in “New Ideas from Dead Economists, New Ideas from Dead CEOs” brings to light past influences and trends that affect today’s economic landscapes. “From Here to Economy” is a trusted guide to economic literacy, simply and clearly explained. In “Lasting Lessons from the Corner Office,” through “compelling and fast-reading narratives” (Booklist), Buchholz examines the great ideas, and some of the failures, of several CEOs and entrepreneurs whose businesses grew to become household names.

Buchholz is an experienced and dedicated keynote speaker and media personality who is noted for his sharp wit, candid demeanor and well-researched arguments on a broad variety of topics.

Buchholz not only served as White House director of economic policy under George H.W. Bush, but was also the managing director of the legendary Tiger hedge fund, and was awarded Harvard’s annual teaching prize in economics. The Wall Street Journal named his latest book, “The Price of Prosperity,” a “must read.”

Two special awards will be presented at this year’s Summit. The CVSN president’s award and the new GenNext 4 under 40 award will both be presented at the Monday, Sept. 10, Opening General Session.

The dates for the 2018 Summit are Sept. 8-12 and the theme for this year’s event is “Reading The Signs.
