Craig Gates, the CEO of Spokane Valley-based Key Tronic EMS, is the featured speaker for Thursday's Connect Northwest Executive Breakfast.
Doors open at 7:30 a.m. at the Spokane Club Georgian Room.
Founded in 1969 as an independent keyboard manufacturer, Key Tronic was the No. 1 keyboard producer in the world by 1978 and went public in 1983.
The company purchased the Mexico manufacturing of Honeywell Keyboards Division in 1993, and five years later, as keyboard revenues began to wane, expanded into electronic manufacturing services. It remains one of the Spokane area's publicly traded companies.
Craig Gates joined Key Tronic in 1994 and became president and CEO in April 2009.
Registration is $30 and includes breakfast.
