We are moving!

It is extremely exciting to share with everyone that after 22 years on Vanderbilt Avenue, MacInnis Group is moving back to where it all began in 1981 – on Access Road, in Norwood, MA.  It will not be in the same building, but right across the street.  Moving is not what is so exciting – in fact, it is downright stressful.  What is so exciting about this move is that MacInnis Group has opted to make a long term investment in our future by purchasing this new office space.  This purchase is but one example of the company’s commitment to continue to reinvest in the company in order to continue to exceed the expectations of our principals, distributors, and customers alike.  We all are looking forward to finishing the buildout, and moving into what will be our new home.

Another Successful Electronica for MacInnis Group

Electronica continues to be an extremely productive use of resources for MacInnis Group, and this year exceeded our expectations again.  Most of our Principals attended, as well as our ever-important Distributor partners.  This resulted in four full days of meetings that required Julie Carr and Hank Heissenbuttel to attend their first Electronica.

I want to thank all of our Principals for allowing us to participate in their meetings, and as your Mrep, to be the voice of your Field Sales Team.  Whether it be participating in strategic meetings between our Principals & Distribution Partners, getting a sneak peek at new products, or having some fun with our industry friends, Electronica continues to be an event that is rewarding in so many ways.
