Marx to speak at University of the Aftermarket event

Tom Marx, CEO of Marx Group Advisors will share his expertise on mergers and acquisitions (M&A) as a featured presenter at the upcoming 2014 University of the Aftermarket Heavy Duty Leadership program.

Marx will explore the topic “Surviving and Thriving During a Merger, Acquisition, Divestiture or Other Change in Ownership” on Thursday, Aug. 7, 2014 on the campus of Northwood University in Midland, Mich.

“Most employees in the heavy duty industry will at one time or another be involved in a merger or acquisition,” says Marx. “During this session with future leaders in the heavy duty aftermarket, I will provide them with real world, practical advice on how to have a positive impact during a change in ownership.”

Marx says he will provide students with an education on the common consolidation scenarios they may face. This includes the sale of a company, divestiture of a business unit, an acquisition or a merger.

Marx says he will also look at different ownership events that could impact them such as the next generation moving into leadership and the role of private equity (PE). He will provide students with strategies on how they can be their best during a merger or acquisition. He will also provide advice on managing the people that work for them during this type of transition and how to contribute to make sure the deal is a success, Marx Group Advisors note.

The University of the Aftermarket Heavy Duty Leadership was created to foster the development of the next generation of heavy duty aftermarket leaders. For additional information regarding the program and to register, visit
