MBK

Jeff Kaminiski, CEO MBK Enterprises

MBK Enterprises is a world leader in converting specialty adhesive tapes, foams, films, foil, cloth, paper, and other flexible materials. MBK stocks hundreds of materials used for bonding, attaching, sealing, masking, protecting, shielding, conducting, gasketing and more, and adds value by die-cutting, laminating, slitting, spooling and endless other services, making products easier and more economical to use. From design to final production, MBK's experienced and knowledgeable team works to find solutions for innovative ideas and sticky applications.

In 1971 John Kaminski had the vision to see the ever expanding need for converted tape products,. He brought his experience as a chemist and a background in pressure sensitive tapes to develop fabricated parts to fit the needs of his first customers. Beginnings were with "Little Joe," a machine for cutting shrink tubing to length, and Marcella Kaminski, his wife, bookkeeper and greatest support. From his beginnings with a work table in the family garage to about 15,000 sq. ft. in Chatsworth, he purchased and renovated used machines for changing pressure sensitive adhesive tapes into carefully thought-out component parts for end products. His first big customers were primarily in the aerospace and electronic industries.

His son and daughter, Jeffrey and Judith, began learning the trade on weekends and school holidays. As the business grew little by little the ideas of the endless possibilities for tape uses rocketed. Judith went to work full-time in 1978 after graduating from California State University Northridge, and Jeffrey went to work for 3M upon his graduation from San Diego State University . The Kaminski family had learned at an early age that tape was indispensable.

In the late fall of 1979, John Kaminski suddenly became ill and passed away. Jeffrey, Judith and Marcella made plans for keeping MBK a going enterprise. Jeffrey resigned from 3M, and the three of them began to learn everything they could about converting. Marcella retired from her role in 1981, but keeps an interest in the latest news.In the past 35 years, MBK has grown and moved to larger facilities three times, remaining in Chatsworth, California. The emphasis has always been on the best customer service, and keeping abreast of the changing needs for pressure sensitive adhesive products. Today, the customer base has changed greatly from 35 years ago. More and more is being accomplished in the fields

of medical devices and information technology, not to mention any niche in between. The company has invested extensively in state-of -the-art converting equipment, as well as the training of it's employees in the workplace. The only limitations are imagination, but this company has plenty of that.

Many of the small businesses owners we speak to express this concern. The Corporate CEO has a board of directors, an executive leadership team, consultants, and managers to help them with strategies and business development. They also have teams and departments to execute key growth initiatives.

The small business owner does not have the time or resources to build a board of directors.

The CEO Club provides the kind of entrepreneurial environment that helps the small business owner to think, plan, and execute like a corporate CEO.

Cervus Group

Hank Adamany, Partner

The Cervus Group & Fund was created to respond to the many middle-market companies that are unable to unlock their hidden value as a result of being under capitalized and/or lacking diversified executive experience.  Their focus is directed primarily toward companies that have been identified as the growth opportunity industries of the next decade -- technology, software, consumer products, and health and wellness.

Some recent examples of how the Cervus Group & Fund can bring the same success to your situation include:

For a publicly-held company that owns a unique technology and patents in the energy industry:

  • Raised approximately $20 million in a series of private equity transactions
  • Sold the company's largest subsidiary, a cash drain and a bad fit with it long-term strategy
  • Gained sole ownership of the technology

As a result, in nine months the company experienced a stock price increase of 400% and obtained an additional $12 million raised through the exercise of in the money stock warrants and options.

For a well known publicly-held Southern California consumer products company:

  • Refinanced debt at lower interest rate and secured additional facility to fund expansion
  • Changed strategy and marketplace emphasis                                      

The result was a stock price increase of 50% in first six months earning recognition by Business Week as a top-performing, micro cap stock, and had its first profitable year since its IPO.

Stephen Pixley, President of AUTOCRIB

In 1994, as President of an industrial distributor, Steve saw a need for manufacturing companies to control their indirect materials. In most cases, they had poor systems to track who was taking what. He also knew that a lot of time was spent looking for items that a worker needed to do his job. Steve set out to find a way to help companies control and deliver the tools and supplies that workers needed, where they were needed. He literally built the first industrial vending machines in his garage.

Since then, AutoCrib, Inc. has provided over 5,000 automated inventory control systems for manufacturing companies worldwide.

AutoCrib's mission is to help companies ensure secure access to the right item, ant the right places, at the right time while driving out waste and excess costs. Plants throughout the world have adopted AutoCrib systems as part of their best practices through "lean" and Six Sigma initiatives because of the significant cost savings and productivity improvements the systems consistently deliver.

The product live has evolved from the basic concept of "tool vending" into a wide variety of systems that assist companies in controlling tooling, gauges, safety & MRO supplies as well as other "indirect materials". Thinking lean has helped AutoCrib be quick to develop the widest breadth of point-of-use dispensing technology designed specifically for industry as well as the finest tool crib & stores inventory management software available.

Susan's Healthy Gourmet

Susan Johnson, CEO, and Kerry Johnson Anthony, President, of Susan's Healthy Gourmet

A native of Houston, Texas, Susan Johnson moved to California in 1994. With their children grown, she and her husband John decided to start a business and settle here permanently.

A family history of cancer and heart disease had made her very aware of the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. When she discovered that there was no one service offering prepared healthy meals for the home throughout Southern California, she decided to fill the niche by providing an effortless way for others to achieve a healthy diet. After much research she determined that Orange County was the most strategic location to accomplish her dream of serving all of Southern California. She opened her headquarters in Irvine in January of 1996, with proven, tested recipes approved by a dietitian, and custom computer programs that not only analyze the nutritional content of each meal, but also track the needs of her customers.

In January of 1998, Healthy Gourmet expanded to Los Angeles, and in May of 2000, Healthy Gourmet began service to San Diego. Susan's plan for Healthy Gourmet is to expand throughout the state of California, promoting good health to those whose goals include eating nutritious, great-tasting food. In the process, she's offering the convenience of eliminating the need for shopping, cooking, and clean up, thereby filling the need that's fueling today's trend toward home meal replacement.

2007 brought our Susan's Healthy Kids and Family meals leading us to 2008 where we added Senior, Diabetic and Anti-Aging/Purification packages; making Susan's Healthy Gourmet the most versatile of the fresh, home replacement meal services.

Currently Healthy Gourmet employs a full-time kitchen staff of 20+ to produce over 250,000 meals a year, with each order customized for its clients. Future plans include expanding the service through shipping to those areas unable to be serviced locally. Susan's dream to be able to provide meals to everyone who wants to enjoy the benefits provided by eating healthy is moving forward just as planned!

Allied Modular Building Systems

"Innovation Is Just One Step Ahead."--Feruzi Mwero

Allied Modular intends to help lead innovation in the modular building construction industry. Part of our leadership strategy is to (1) find, or develop, connections between the needs of our customers and the solutions we can offer, and (2) extensively research the questions of our audience and to answer as many of them as we can.

From Kevin's blog:

I recently spent some time with one of our customers who were making a change to one of their facilities. I asked him how the people were handling the change. His response was like many I’ve heard in the past. He said, “I don’t understand why people don’t want to change. I can’t figure out if they are lazy or just scared of what will happen.”

My response was very simple. . .Read More

Andrea Waltz and Richard Fenton

Go for No

Everyone loves the sound of the word YES... it’s so positive, so empowering. And then there’s “NO!” For most people, NO is just the opposite: negative… draining… the antithesis of yes. But what if that could change?

What if you could achieve every quota… hit every income goal… and reach every personal dream… simply by changing the way you think, feel, and respond to hearing the word NO?

Well, you can.

When you hear the word, NO...

  • What does that "NO" mean to you?
  • How do you respond to it 'internally' in your mind (what you think)?
  • And how do you respond to it 'externally' in your behaviors and actions (what you do)?

Here's a simple fact: The relationship you have with the word NO… what you think and feel when you hear it, and what you do afterward as a result - whether you seek opportunities to hear NO again, or whether you run from them - is THE single most important factor in determining the level of success you will achieve in your life. Check out our Go for No! Breakthrough Package!
