Future Proof Your Business & Get to the Next Level
March 9 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST$150.00
The Indiana State Chapter of the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) welcomes you to an INVITE ONLY event on March 9th, 2022, 5:00 pm at Woodstock Country Club, Indianapolis.
Join us for this live, in-person panel discussion that addresses specific concerns current business owners and managers face.
Former Owner, Corsi Cabinetry
A brief history of an 80 year life. Born in Portsmouth, NH where dad was building submarines and mom was this cute Italian girl.
Raised and high school in Richmond, my father’s home town. Started in construction unloading box cars for a lumber company in Indianapolis in 1962. From that I learned a 2X4 was not 2”X4”. A series of jobs followed leading to becoming General Manager of Welsh Kitchens in Shelbyville, IN., a company specializing in cabinetry for multi-unit subsidized housing. That ended abruptly on February 3, 1973. 10:00am as I recall and the third job from which I’d been fired. Walked into an empty building in downtown Indianapolis July 16, 1973 with a $44,000.00 SBA loan, no employees, no machinery and no customers. Spent my first day as President of Corsi Cabinet Co tearing out and replacing all the bathroom fixtures. It slowly got better after that.
Today, after 48 years, Corsi has plants in Indianapolis and Elkins, West Virginia. The company manufactures and markets custom cabinetry under the Greenfield and Siteline brands to over 400 dealers throughout the county. Most products are sold into the remodeling market and business is booming. I completed the sale of the company August 31, 2021 in order to get a bit of time off and to ensure consistency, professionalism and the continuation of high ethical standards for the company’s future.
Construction Lawyer, Wooton Hoy LLC
Paul concentrates his practice in construction litigation, mechanic’s liens and other construction payment remedies as well as corporate and business Litigation. He represents residential and commercial builders and remodelers, as well as subcontractors in their various construction disputes, zoning and variance issues and contract preparation and review. He also dedicates a substantial amount of time in assisting his clients in addressing and resolving general business matters.
Sales Management Consultant, Lushin & Associates
A veteran on the Lushin team, Brian is a strong sales management consultant who connects with his clients using a direct—sometimes sarcastic—communication style. His favorite piece of advice: Stop doing that. He helps clients eliminate unproductive behaviors to make way for action that drives results. Brian thrives on the daily opportunity to positively impact people’s lives—both professional and personal.
In his sales management training, Brian aims to provide clarity for his clients. He wants people to learn what they need to do and gain the confidence to do it. His goal is to help them find their swagger. His video on sales coaching techniques is one of our most popular.
A licensed pilot and backyard grill-master, Brian also lends a hand when his family shows cows around the country.
Glenn is a Certified Public Accountant and partner with the accounting firm of Comer, Nowling and Associates, P.C. (CNA). Prior to founding CNA, Mr. Comer was a Senior Manager in KPMG Peat Marwick’s Southeastern Region National Services Practice. He has over 30 years of experience in providing audit, tax and management consulting services to clients across the country. Glenn specializes in providing comprehensive business planning, tax planning and profitability enhancement services to businesses. He very much enjoys proactive whiteboard sessions with clients where no idea is too crazy. As a result, he’s proving that the words “Creative”, “Tax Planning” and “Accounting” can be used in the same sentence.
