MacAulay-Brown CEO Publishes Book on the Power of Strategic Networking

Nationally-recognized Business Leader Provides Insights Into How a Positive, Active and Personal Network Unleashes the Power Within and Empowers Individuals    

DAYTON, Ohio and Vienna, Va., June 5, 2012 – MacAulay-Brown, Inc. (MacB), a leading engineering and technical services company supporting the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and Intelligence Community with over 2,000 employees worldwide, announced today that its President and CEO, Sidney “Sid” E. Fuchs, has published Get off the Bench: Unleashing the Power of Strategic Networking Through Relationships. The new book is a powerful, common sense guide to networking that walks readers through the do’s and don’ts of building a network based on trust and a mutual goal of helping others.

“Throughout my life, I have had the good fortune of building long-lasting relationships by focusing on the passions and interests of the people I meet,” said Sid Fuchs, President and CEO of MacB. “As these relationships became my network, I realized how much we were able to help each other – often times without having to be asked. It is an honor to be able to share what I have learned when it comes to building effective networks with anyone desiring to create strong relationships they can rely on throughout their lives.”

The book leads the reader through the necessary steps to build and maintain a strategic network based on goals and objectives. It emphasizes stories, concepts, techniques and numerous examples of how strategic networking is accomplished, what is to be avoided and how value is created for everyone involved. As Fuchs reiterates throughout the book, “When you need a relationship, it’s too late to build it.”

“On behalf of the MacB family, I’d like to congratulate Sid on the publishing of his book,” said Syd Martin, Vice Chairman of the Board of MacB. “Fostering and nurturing business and personal relationships is critical to a successful, happy life. Get off the Bench reminds us that while networking websites are important, it is not a replacement for face-to-face interaction or for taking a personal interest in helping others.”

Last night, Fuchs hosted a book signing at The Tower Club Tysons Corner in Vienna, Va. More than 250 business professionals attended the sold out event. The guests turned out to learn more about the book and to discuss their mutual networking success stories. To view pictures of the book signing, click here.
