“Like others in this industry, we’re optimistic about consumer demand this year,” said Dave Wilson, commercial leader of CDF’s diversified products group, which provides inventory financing for dealers of music instruments and related products. “Although wholesale purchases were soft heading into 2013, we think that will turn around now that we’re seeing positive signs in the U.S. economy. Unemployment rates are declining, consumer confidence is improving and home sales are increasing, — all of which are good news for sales of instruments and related products.”To help restore and revitalize music education in U.S. public schools, CDF has supported Little Kids Rock, which brings free instruments and instruction to students in underserved schools across the country, since 2008. GE’s support for community organizations comes in three forms: financial support, volunteer efforts and intellectual capital.
