Moving from a life of success to a life of significance
As a Vistage Chair, you serve as a mentor to CEOs, business owners and senior executives in your community, helping them navigate their biggest challenges so they can reach that next level of success.
Our Chairs are a hand-selected, elite group of advisors. Each one has achieved peak levels of success in their own careers. They share a desire to use their business acumen and leadership experiences to help today’s top executives on their paths to personal and professional excellence.
The life of a Vistage Chair is an opportunity to create an impact that ripples from the C-Suite, through company ranks and into your community.
What does a Vistage Chair do?
As a Chair, you facilitate a confidential peer group meeting each month with 12-16 executives from non-competing industries. In these meetings, members discuss their most pressing issues and opportunities, gathering insights from those who’ve tackled similar situations.
Between group meetings, you connect one to one with each member to provide guidance tailored to their unique challenges. Vistage gives you a time-tested model that delivers proven results.
It’s meaningful, financially rewarding work. On your own schedule.
The benefits of a Vistage Chair Practice
You have maximum impact on today’s small and midsize businesses. You’re provided a proven model that has withstood the test of time since 1957. Our peer group method has driven our members to outperform their competition through boom markets and recession. Today, more than 23,000 executives worldwide trust Vistage to help them make better decisions.
You can generate a recurring revenue with long-term relationships with members. We’re in a fast-growing industry with steady demand. Vistage chief executive members typically receive such value that they stay more than 5 years on average. There’s no limit on the number of groups you can launch.
You have control over your time and travel. As an independent contractor, you can build a practice that gives you flexibility and suits your schedule. Choose the number of hours a week or month that you want to work. Travel is minimal as your monthly meetings and one-to-ones are all local.
