Getting the Top Job in Pricing

Career and Leadership Advice from Dick Braun, the VP of Strategic Pricing at Parker Hannifin

Managing a career in B2B pricing can be a double-edged sword. As a relatively new business focus and function, of course there's tremendous opportunity to "write your own ticket" so to speak. However, those same dynamics may also mean that there aren't yet well-established career paths for you to follow. So, how do you become a Vice President of Pricing at a multi-billion dollar, multi-national B2B company? A great first step might be to get some advice from someone who's already achieved it! Someone like Dick Braun, the Vice President of Strategic Pricing at Parker Hannifin and a well-known pillar of the pricing community.
