Sheryl Toby to Address 2013 Motor Vehicle Metals & Resins Conference

Will Discuss How Troubled Suppliers Can Put Supply Chain at Risk

April 22, 2013

Sheryl L. Toby, member and co-leader of Dykema’s Bankruptcy practice, is one of two co-presenters of the topic, “A 180º Strategy for the New Troubled Supplier,” at the 2013 Motor Vehicle Metals & Resins Conference, to be held in Troy, Michigan on Thursday, May 23, 2013.

The one-day conference, hosted by Advanced Purchasing Dynamics, is expected to attract top automaker, supplier and purchasing executives from mid-sized to large companies. This year’s conference, following the format of predecessor events, will incorporate both keynote presentations and workshop sessions to provide attendees timely and important industry insights.

Joining Toby as co-presenter will be Joe Bione, President of The Whitehall Group, LLC, a management firm that provides services to companies in transition or trouble. Together, Toby and Bione will address troubled suppliers whose financial and operational shortcomings threaten others in the automotive supply chain. The two will spell out what companies and their purchasing organizations need to do—before, during and after troubled suppliers are identified—to insulate their firms from legal and production difficulties.

Toby has counseled a diverse number of manufacturers on day-to-day supply chain legal issues. She is a frequent speaker at industry conferences and is a “go to” resource on a wide variety of matters in which operational and legal issues intersect.
