Marc Sinkow is a professional facilitator for the Delaware Valley Industrial Resource Center’s (DVIRC) Manufacturer’s Executive Forum Groups, the only network groups dedicated to business leaders of small and mid-sized manufacturing firms.

DVIRC is a private, not-for-profit corporation with a public purpose—to support the profitable growth of small and mid-sized U.S. manufacturers. They support manufacturers through three practice areas: customized consulting (business management, operational excellence, and top-line growth), training and education, and executive network groups. DVIRC’s clients are independently surveyed to assess their performance and value-added impact. Since 1988 DVIRC has served more than 2,000 manufacturers and generated over $2 Billion in client impact.

The Executive Forum Groups consists of manufacturing leaders from companies with smaller or medium employment sizes. These groups are based in each of the 5 counties in Southeastern PA.

Groups are limited to 16 members and chaired by a professional facilitator to assure maximum interaction and value. Each member receives a valuable business case study targeting one of their current business issues that includes pragmatic solutions and advice from their peer advisory group.

Each meeting offers a confidential setting where leaders from non-competing manufacturing firms share common challenges as well as proven solutions gained from the experience of all members.

You also gain a valuable network of trusted business advisors, business development opportunities, business presentations, industry related resources, continuous improvement, and leadership development.

There is a quarterly membership fee and the Executive Forum Groups meet 8-10 times per year rotating at each members’ location.
