Panelists Announced for the 21st Annual IHRSA Financial Panel

Boston, MA - The annual IHRSA Financial Panel, taking place during IHRSA 2017, will highlight the expertise of four highly-regarded financial experts and apply their knowledge to the issues impacting the health club market.

Rick Caro, President of Management Vision and Financial Panel moderator, says, "The intent of the panel is to ensure industry operators have the knowledge they need to make sound financial decisions. This year’s four panelists have researched the market matter extensively.”

This year’s panelists include:

  • Marc Magliacano, Partner, L Catterton
  • Andrew B. Hirsekorn, Principal, Eagle Merchant Partners
  • Will Cowan, Senior VP, Jefferies LLC
  • Steve Tricarico, Managing Director, Jefferies LLC

Panelists will offer information on major club transactions across a variety of club segments and answer any additional questions during a separate Q&A session.

The annual IHRSA Financial Panel is a session that CEOs, CFOs, club owners, GMs, investors, suppliers, press, and those interested in the current economic conditions affecting the health club market will not want to miss. Session attendees will learn how financial executives view  the industry’s strengths and weaknesses, how they see future trends, how different segments within the industry are faring, and how the current debt and equity markets are behaving relative to our industry.

“Rick Caro’s Financial Panel is very useful to me as I write The IHRSA Global Report every year,” says Kristen Walsh, Associate Publisher for IHRSA. “The financial experts Rick brings in from Wall Street have some very interesting insights into our industry, and their predictions for the upcoming year are usually spot on. Arrive early, as this event is well-attended by the best and brightest in the industry, and it is NOT recorded, so the only way to get the information is to be there in person.”

The 21st Annual IHRSA Financial Panel will take place at the JW Marriott at L.A. Live in Platinum Ballroom-E on Friday, March 10, from 10:00 am-11:30 am during IHRSA 2017, IHRSA's 36th Annual Convention & Trade Show in Los Angeles, CA. All registered convention attendees are invited and encouraged to attend. For more information and to register for the convention, please visit ihrsa.org/convention.
