Thursday, August 19, 2021 | Opportunities and Challenges Facing High-Growth Companies in Southeastern Wisconsin

The August TEMPO Program Meeting will feature business leaders from three Southeastern Wisconsin companies that are experiencing significant growth: Generac, Haribo, and Milwaukee Tool. All three companies happen to be in the manufacturing sector, which is Wisconsin’s largest industry by GDP and one of the state’s fastest sectors to recover from impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. During this insightful discussion, participants will learn about each company’s unique growth drivers as well as the challenges and opportunities ahead as they seek to maintain momentum in an environment marked by unprecedented supply chain disruption and a shortage of talent. Register here.
