Todd Buchholz has been announced as the second speaker at the upcoming Commercial Vehicle Solutions Network (CVSN) Aftermarket Distribution Summit in September at Chateau Elan Winery Resort and Spa, Braselton, Ga.

As an acclaimed author and former White House economic policy director, Buchholz will be speaking Monday, Sept. 10 during the upcoming Summit. CVSN says his presentation will connect the dots between local and global markets, the politics that define business environments, and the people who drive it all. An experienced and dedicated keynote speaker and media personality, CVSN says Buchholz is noted for his sharp wit, candid demeanor, and well-researched arguments on a broad variety of topics.

In his speeches, CVSN says Buchholz draws on years of research into financial topics ranging from housing finance to fast-food lawsuits to the influence of competition on our lives as working members of society (Rush: Why You Need and Love the Rat Race). His work in historical economics (New Ideas from Dead Economists, New Ideas from Dead CEOs) brings to light past influences and trends that affect today’s economic landscapes. From Here to Economy is a trusted guide to economic literacy, simply and clearly explained.

In Lasting Lessons from the Corner Office, through “compelling and fast-reading narratives” (Booklist), Buchholz examines the great ideas, and some of the failures, of several CEOs and entrepreneurs whose businesses grew to become household names, CVSN says.

Buchholz not only served as White House director of economic policy under George H.W. Bush, but was also the managing director of the legendary Tiger hedge fund, and was awarded Harvard’s annual teaching prize in economics. The Wall Street Journal named his latest book, The Price of Prosperity, a “must read.”

CVSN announced last week that Rocky Romanella will serve as keynote speaker at this year’s event and will also speak on Monday, Sept. 10. In addition to Romanella’s presentation Opening General Session at this year’s Summit, CVSN says it also will present two special awards — the President’s Award to Pete Joy of Phillips Industries and the GenNext 4 Under 40 Awards.
