Clayton Schwerin Launches New Vistage Group in Minneapolis Market

San Diego, February 10, 2014 — Vistage Chair Clayton Schwerin has recently launched his second chief executive group in the greater Minneapolis-Saint Paul region.

Schwerin is part of a community of more than 400 Vistage Chairs who lead local area groups, which total more than 45,000 members in 15 countries.

This was his second group launch as a new Chair in less than 12 months. Clayton was a great networker and collaborator with his fellow Chairs as well as the Vistage training staff and thus was able to get on a fast track to his goals. Well done!”
