Clayton Schwerin Launches New Vistage Group in Minneapolis

Minneapolis, September 19, 2013— Vistage Chair Clayton Schwerin has recently launched a new chief executive group in the greater Minneapolis-St. Paul area. His group is composed of twelve members and meets monthly to discuss business issues and successes, share expertise, and provide one another with confidential support and coaching to help achieve personal and organizational goals. Clayton joins nearly 400 Vistage Chairs who lead local area groups, which total more than more 17,000 members in 15 countries.

Maria Mello, New Group Build Manager with Vistage, applauded his success, “Clayton excels at strategy and action. He displays the qualities of an exceptional Chair and it has been a pleasure working with him.”

Clayton is driven by the strong desire to help executives and organizations succeed. His background is in the commercial real estate, construction, transportation, equipment leasing and consulting industries, where he has led as CEO, President and owner for more than twenty years. Believing that hard work and dedication should reap benefits, Clayton sold his companies to his management team in 2009. The new company President participated in Vistage as a member for five years.

Additionally, Clayton co-founded a national peer group, where he remained a member for twelve years. This collaborative, results-focused environment is what attracted Clayton to Vistage. Clayton holds an MBA from Colorado State University, where he was awarded the Entrepreneur of the Year Award and a BS from Southwest Minnesota State University, where he was awarded the Alumni Achievement Award.
