This year, Jack Hartung, chief financial officer of Chipotle Mexican Grill, will be the guest speaker for the program. Hartung will provide SCRS audience members with an intimate look into the critical role of culture in an organization; the idea of reshaping the consumer expectation; the challenges and potential for success in developing a business model that accounts for higher quality and higher associated costs, even in competition with low-cost providers; and the fundamental importance of consumer trust, how easy it is to lose, and necessary measures to build it back.
Immediately after the Repairer Roundtable (and just prior to the start of CIC), SCRS will host the annual Industry Awards and Corporate Member Recognition lunch at at 11:15 a.m. in the Westminster 1 room. The event, which will include lunch, is designed to recognize organizations that contribute significant support to SCRS through their Corporate Membership, as well as to recognize some of the contributions made to the advancement of the industry.
