Blake Slizoski

Blake says two experiences, in particular, had a large impact on him. One was his very first Industrial Distribution Career Fair. This experience allowed him to see the vast opportunities that are available in Industrial Distribution. The second was being president of the Industrial Distribution Organization. As president, he was challenged, and had the opportunity to help grow the organization and hone his leadership skills. Blake says his time at CBT helped him build his confidence, understanding about his career, and overall, prepared him for his future.
