Tuchman Advisory Group held recent meeting @
In The Bag Cleaners ~ Wichita, KS ~ June 22-24, 2016
The Tuchman Advisory Group (formally known as Tuchman Training Systems) held a very successful meeting hosted by Dave Coyle of In The Bag Cleaners in Wichita, KS. We toured In The Bag’s Central Production Facility and two Retail Locations. Frank Dubasik (Director of U.S. Operations) Metalprogetti was on hand to answer any questions about his recently installed equipment. Following the tour we critiqued In The Bag operations. Guest speakers included Walt Smith (Executive V.P & Co-Founder) of Indy Hangers, discussing his company and John Rothmann (KGO-AM810, talk show host) who provided part two of his political analysis about the 2016 Presidential election. We all gathered at the Coyle home for dinner.
It has been 30 years since the legendary Sid Tuchman created his cost groups that have made such a difference in the lives of many in the dry cleaning industry. Ellen Tuchman Rothmann announced at the meeting that the new name of the industry-leading group is the Tuchman Advisory Group (T.A.G). “We will continue our outstanding work and provide leadership in our industry. ” Rothmann, who is president of T.A.G. continued, “ T.A.G. membership constitutes an industry leading group. We will continue to learn from each other as we work together to develop new systems and approaches that will strengthen our individual companies.” Those seeking more information about T.A.G. can email firstname.lastname@example.org
