Speaker: Kate Vriner

Since April 2016, I've been a Certified Business Broker working for Sunbelt Business Brokers of Southwest Ohio. We are a member of IBBA, IFA, Dayton Chamber, and Dayton Regional Manufacturing Association. As a broker, I work with our clients to facilitate the buying and/or selling of a business. We guide them through the development of a thorough exit strategy from the business valuation to the transition of ownership. I am committed to sharing our expertise with the southwest Ohio community. Prior to working for Sunbelt Business Brokers of Southwest Ohio, I graduated from Wright State University with a Bachelor of Science in Organizational Leadership. Immediately after graduation, I began working for CH Robinson, a third Party Logistics company, in Chicago. As a sales representative and account manager, my responsibilities were to perform in-depth analysis identifying opportunities for improvement and sales trends, as well as customizing solutions to meet our customers’ needs. By building strong relationships with my customers, I was able to develop strategies that were mutually beneficial, which resulted in increased revenue and volume. In 2012, I moved back to Dayton and began working for Dayton Freight Lines as a national account pricing analyst. Again, I was tasked with analyzing the profitability of our current customers as well as future customers. By developing relationships with my internal customers, as well as our external customers, I was able to negotiate pricing terms that were agreeable to both parties.

Cancellation notice must be given three business days prior to an event. While we understand that plans and schedules change causing missed events, we are often held financially liable for the headcount we provide vendors and, as a nonprofit, cannot absorb these charges. Invoices will be sent to individuals who register but don't pre-pay and provide sufficient cancellation notice. Registrants who are not able to cancel three days prior to an event may send another individual from their company in their place. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this matter.
