The Feud took place Tues­day, May 7th at the All-Indus­try Kick­off Recep­tion and included a Family Feud style contest between executives from Mouser and Digi-Key who brought their A-game to an audience-participation version of the popular show.

“The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes initiative is grateful for the generous gift made by Mouser Electronics and Digi-Key Electronics, along with their partner sponsors Panasonic, Kemet, Molex, TDK, Littelfuse and Murata” said Eric Eversole, vice president at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and president of Hiring Our Heroes. “As the war for talent wages on, HOH looks forward to continuing to connect ECIA’s members with opportunities to recruit the tremendous talent represented by our nation’s military veterans, transitioning service members, and military spouses."
ECIA's vice president of member engagement Debbie Conyers added, ”The ECIA Foundation has supported Hiring Our Heroes for several years. ECIA members are known to be generous – and our friends at Mouser and Digi-Key came up with a clever way to draw attention to this worthy cause! We are so grateful for all the sponsors of the Feud; it’s a spirited way to start our week at EDS," she concluded.
