Butzel attorney Beth S. Gotthelf featured during Michigan Defense Leadership Summit on May 16


 TROY, Mich. –  Butzel attorney Beth S. Gotthelf will participate in a panel program during the Women in Defense (WID) Michigan Defense Leadership Summit on Thursday, May 16, 2024 at the MSU Management Education Center in Troy.

Often larger businesses do not appreciate some of the challenges faced by small and medium size suppliers in trying to fulfill their customer’s requests with high quality products while trying to run their business profitably but competitively, all the while staying current on regulations and the defense community’s needs. Conversely, small and medium size suppliers may not appreciate some of large customers’ challenges.  How can suppliers and customers work better together to achieve their goals? Those are some of the questions that this panel will discuss.

The program is titled, “Large and Small Business Perspectives on Connectedness within the Defense Community.” Other featured panelists include Krishna Jelinski, General Dynamics Land Systems; Nidhi Puri, Arbor Corporation; and, Patricia Creagh, American Rheinmentall Vehicles.
