Business Luncheon Series

Join us for our next GACC Midwest Business Luncheon on November 7!

Our speakers are from CHG-Meridian USA Corp., the Excellence in Services award winner at the German American Business Awards 2018. 

Topic: Efficient Technology Management


Markus Hiller, Principal

DJ DiMarco, Executive Vice President Sales USA & Canada

There are many costs associated with owning assets that are easy to calculate; however, there are even more costs like installing, deploying, upgrading, and disposing of assets that you may not have even thought of. Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) takes these into consideration and provides an accurate estimation of the actual costs you will incur. Markus Hiller of CHG-MERIDIAN is an expert in all things TCO and will discuss how to better manage your technology.

Markus Hiller is a Principal at CHG-MERIDIAN, one of the world's largest independent technology management companies. He is responsible for providing Total Cost of Ownership, Total Value of Ownership, and Lease vs. Buy analysis for CHG's customers of Fortune 5,000 companies and hospitals. 

We look forward to seeing you at the next Business Luncheon!

Cost: $50 for members, $65 for non-members

Please note that all sales are final.

By attending this event, you agree to allow photos and/or video of you to be taken and used in GACC Midwest’s marketing collateral, including but not limited to our website and other digital channels.

On every first Wednesday of the month, we invite you to lunch, learn and discuss with members and friends of the German American Chamber of Commerce.

Lunch has never been more delicious and productive.
