About the Show

The distribution channel for the sanitary supply industry is filled with industrious, innovative people with tons of knowledge, experience and insights. Distribution Spotlight features leaders, innovators and other interesting people from the industry that share their own personal stories and experiences with you.

Some of their stories are inspiring. Some are insightful; but all of them will motivate and propel your success in the sanitary supply industry.

Since so many people in the industry spend so much time traveling in their vehicles or on planes, the Show was created as a podcast, so it can be listened to anywhere, anytime – even on the go.

A different story is shared every two weeks.

About the Host

Distribution Spotlight is hosted by me, Allen Wix. My career started in the sanitary supply industry in 1999, when I joined Affiliated Paper Company (now AFFLINK), a distributor buying group.

Over the next 15 years, I worked to develop, launch and grow over a dozen private label programs in a variety of categories, including towel & tissue, can liners, cleaning chemicals, skin care and floor pads.

I left AFFLINK to start my own marketing company for small businesses in another industry. Despite all of the long hours and work required to start the business, I began missing the industry and all of the great people in it.

As I brainstormed ways to reengage in the industry, I knew I wanted to do something positive – and the Distribution Spotlight podcast was the result. I hope you enjoy the Show!
