Announces Formation of Cross-Industry Strategic Planning Council
October 27, 2003 (Pleasanton, CA) – Wright Williams & Kelly, Inc. (WWK) announced today the formation of a multi-industry advisory board to assist the company in broadening the market focus of its cost and productivity management software tools and consulting services. More importantly, they further announced the appointment of the CEO of a major consumer packaged goods manufacturer to the advisory board.
“The formation of our new advisory board in combination with our aggressive use of outside directors is going to be a major advantage in executing our strategic vision for diversification,” stated David Jimenez, WWK’s President. “The semiconductor and related industries have been the beneficiary of our work over the past decade; now is the time to migrate our expertise to the rest of the manufacturing and assembly industries, regardless of end product or geographic location.”
WWK is a vital resource as its productivity and cost management tools are powerful antidotes to the effects of deflation and the lack of product pricing power. And, in the midst of pervasive overcapacity, WWK’s tools can rationalize capital allocation.
