year, providing consulting on various initiatives. The manufacturers,
complimentary to one another, crossed various product sectors

When I launched Delano Associates, I knew I had challenging
work ahead of me but balanced that with the satisfaction of
a diverse day and sharing my experience with a number
of different clients, Delano said. Effectively working
on multiple projects and objectives for a variety of clients
is exciting and motivating for me as a consultant. I have thoroughly
enjoyed working with each of Delano Associates clients
and thank them for their part in making this a very successful
Delano offers consulting on a number of initiatives including
sales management, business development strategies, financial
forecasting, market assessments, dealer advisory groups, product
education and product development processes. Each is developed
mutually with the client with overarching goals of improving
business planning, growing sales and taking care of the customer.
One particularly rewarding aspect has been the opportunity
to keep in touch with dealers and distributors, Delano
said. This helps keep me tuned in to whats going
in our industry both coast to coast and internationally.
Delano also volunteers with CEDIA, an organization he has long
supported. I believe in the many hands lightens
the load approach to the betterment of an opportunity,
he said. The time I dedicate to CEDIA Education and the
Management Conference, for example, supports our industry while
also providing me an opportunity to learn from my colleagues
and gain new ideas to offer my clients.
