Prophet 21's Electrical Advisory Council recently held its kick-off meeting at Prophet 21's corporate headquarters in Yardley, Pa. In addition to discussing industry trends and business processes, the council will offer feedback and guidance to help Prophet 21 develop even more solutions and services for electrical distributors.

“The best way to develop the tools distributors need to improve their businesses is to listen and learn from them,” said Chuck Boyle, Prophet 21 president and CEO.

Darren Crandell, operations manager at the Indiana-based Wabash Electric Supply and a member of the council, said that Prophet 21 is unique among solution providers for offering customers such a forum. “We're all distributors, but business processes vary from industry to industry,” said Crandell. “It's great to see that Prophet 21 recognizes and addresses that.”

Other members of the council include: Doug McPherson, CFO of Lighting and Lamp Corp.; William Roeloff, CFO, Benfield Electric Supply; Tom Muldoon, president, EB Horsman & Son; Bob Brunelle, operations manager, Control Corporation of America; Vincent Nadon, IT manager, Cadillac Electric; and David Adkinson, president, Becker Electric.
