About our small business coaches

Vistage Chairs are experienced business leaders, and often former CEOs, who assemble and facilitate private advisory boards for CEOs, executives and business owners. During monthly meetings, they provide one-on-one coaching, valuable professional insight and mentorship. This results in an average member tenure of seven years. According to a 2017 analysis of Dun & Bradstreet data, Vistage companies grew 2.2 times faster than average small and medium-sized U.S. businesses.
