Digi-Key also hosted its annual EDS Business Update Breakfast on Thursday, May 12, featuring market activity and business updates from Digi-Key president Dave Doherty and vice president of Americas and EMEA business development Ian Wallace. The theme of the presentation was “Successful. Together.” and covered Digi-Key’s performance in 2021 and its continuous investments in its core business, as well as new services and how those capabilities such as Marketplace, e-commerce platforms and logistics services can benefit suppliers.
“At Digi-Key, we’re looking for ways to make the extraordinary, ordinary, and we couldn’t do it without our supplier partners, manufacturing reps, online and media personnel,” Doherty said. “We’re focused on our digital presence, streamlining processes and supporting our customers in order to plan for the next cycle — because in this industry, it’s never a matter of ‘if’ – it’s a matter of ‘when.’”
