M. Larry Edwards Launches New Vistage Group in Oklahoma City Market

San Diego, July 2, 2014— Vistage Chair M. Larry Edwards has recently launched a new chief executive group in Oklahoma City, OK. The new Vistage group will meet monthly to discuss business issues, share expertise, and provide one another confidential help to achieve their goals. Edwards is part of a community of more than 400 Vistage Chairs who lead local area groups, which total more than 21,000 members in 15 countries.

Vistage Regional Executive Dave Bartel applauded his success: “Larry continued to “show up” when many people would have thrown the towel in. He faced many negative events while building his group, both personal and business and yet it was obvious that he felt Vistage was right for him. Being the first Chair in Oklahoma City in many years, Larry had to not only educate people about Vistage, but they had to believe in him that he is here to make it work. Larry proved to us that launching a group is not only about Vistage, but that the people in your community believe in you. Thank you Larry for bringing the Vistage experience back into Oklahoma!”
