Last week, members of the C2FO Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) team had the welcome opportunity to put faces to names at Costco Supplier Day in Bellevue, Washington and the Rite Aid Annual Supplier Conference in Hershey, Pennsylvania. In both instances, we were able to meet representatives of the buyers we work with as well as many of their suppliers who benefit from the guidance and support of the SRM team.
At Costco Supplier Day, members of our SRM team started the morning listening to presentations from Costco founders and executives. The rest of the day gave them the chance to talk to supplier company representatives, and they had great one-on-one conversations with numerous executives about C2FO as a supplier benefit.
The Rite Aid Annual Supplier Conference theme this year was “Retail Evolution.” The conference kicked off with Rite Aid Corporate executives reporting on highlights of the past year and sharing their vision for the company’s continued growth. The conference setup allowed SRM team members to intersperse demos with their one-on-one conversations with supplier company executives throughout the afternoon. All attendees were offered free flu shots, but the C2FO reps had already taken care of that at the office!
The conferences were a great chance for supplier reps to discover firsthand the depth of knowledge and financial acumen that the SRM team members have to offer. We’re looking forward to continuing the conversations and ensuring that each supplier has a chance to use C2FO strategically to address their individual business goals.
