Dan Matis is a 27 year veteran of the independent electronic distribution industry. Dan started in the industry in 1985 and was a founding owner of America EMG from 1985 - 1989. As a member of the independent electronic distribution industry , he started his career when morals, ethic, and doing the right thing for the customer provided a sense of pride and saying "No I can't help you" to the customer was necessary, if it meant compromising the quality of product or service you could provide to your customer.
Throughout his career Dan has worked both directly with and through his companies sales teams to support such industry giants as Digital Equipment, Data Products, Motorola, Lucent Technology, Alcatel, Nortel, IBM, Hewlett Parkard, Agilent, Boeing, Honeywell, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, L-3 and several of the largest Contract Manufacturers including Sanmina-SCI, Celestica, Flextronics, and Solectron.
As a founding owner of #1 Components of NY in 1990, Dan helped #1 Components become the 4th fastest growning company in NY in 1995 achieving revenue growth of 139.9% year over year. He is currently the CEO of Accurate Technology a multi-division company specializing in independent distribution, Custom Software including Systems Analysis and Design, Online Marketing, and most recently Big Data.
Dan is available and would love to be a consultant for the United States Government's ICE division and Home Land Security helping to identify, combat, and remove the elements responsible for infiltrating the US Government's Defense Supply Chain System and American Commercial Manufacturing Community. He believes his 27 years of experience in the industry, knowing who the players are, how the counterfeiter and traffickers operate, how to identify companies that counterfeit and the components they counterfeit, and what search engines and methods they use would be a tremendous asset to the government by saving them time & money while ridding the industries of this unwanted and dangerous element..

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
While no one really can accurately predict the future, we can take guidance from another Drucker saying which is the best way to predict the future is to create it.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee.

Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
