What is Sumner Business Exchange?

Sumner Business Exchange is a network of small business owners and managers who support each other and the community by promoting local business.

Our members meet twice a month to share business opportunities and referrals.  The goal is to grow our businesses together by supporting each other with personal high-quality referrals and connections.  It has been referred to as “acquiring a sales team” for small businesses.

 Who is in Our Network?

We look for high-quality business owners and managers with a reputation for excellent work ethics, integrity, are highly skilled, experienced, and have a basic philosophy to do the right thing.

“We want to be sure to reflect brilliantly and memorably on everyone we recommend.” ~ Darrell Woodcock, President

Our members encompass many industries in the community. Industry exclusivity lends strength to the strategic alliance.

It has been proven that it is always smarter to work together, it is always smarter to have others work on your behalf in their respective fields, and it is always smarter to have fun doing it!  Our group has fun, enjoys each other, and makes “work” a less stressful and more productive opportunity for all involved.

The Sumner Business Exchange meets on the first and third Thursdays of each month at 8:00 AM in Hendersonville, TN.

What Our  Members Say

I have been a member of Sumner Business Exchange for several years and would highly recommend the group to small to medium sized business owners.  I have gained a tremendous amount of knowledge and insight from the members through their weekly presentations that help me better market their services to all those I come in contact with on a weekly basis. We are a group of Christ minded business people who openly share referrals, networking, and fellowship delivering valuable feedback and encouragement through prayer and friendship.

I’ve been a member of Sumner Business Exchange for over 2 years now, and it has been a great experience. I was new to the area when I joined, and was looking to plug into the community. Sumner Business Exchange has been a great source of business referrals, but has also allowed me to create great relationships with other professionals in the group.  If you’re looking for a great group of people who are the best at what they do, this is the group for you.

Members of Sumner Business Exchange have become part of my family over the last few years.  Not only do I enjoy seeing everyone on a regular basis, we enjoy sharing business referrals!  I can refer everyone in the group with confidence knowing that my clients, friends and family will be in the best hands.  Building relationships takes time, building trust takes time, building a business takes time.  I highly recommend Sumner Business Exchange for building relationship, trust and business.
