To help Braun Jones pass on his duties as President of ACG National Capital, I conducted a podcast with Braun and our new chapter President – Jason Rigoli.
Braun had a very successful year, especially given the recession. The highlight of Braun’s Presidency was being named Chapter of the Year by ACG Global. As a member of the 2009/2010 Board of Directors for ACG Nation Capital, Jason contributed to that success. He served as the committee chairperson for the 2010 Strategic Growth Conference, which was one of the most successful events in the chapter’s history and included speeches from political leaders such as Tom Ridge, Andy Card, and John Sununu.
In addition to discussing the past year and what the future will bring for ACG National Capital, I asked Braun and Jason to predict corporate growth trends for the remainder of 2010. They agreed that as the economy continues to improve the following industries will experience positive growth:
- Health IT
- Green initiatives and alternative engergy
During the podcast, Braun and Jason also provided insights on how to prepare a company for sale. To listen to the full podcast, please click here.
