David Spann Launches New Vistage Group in the Boise, Idaho Market

San Diego, June 18, 2013— Vistage Chair David Spann has recently launched a second chief executive group in Boise, Idaho. The Vistage Group will meet monthly to discuss business issues, share expertise, and provide one another confidential help to achieve their goals. Spann joins nearly 400 Vistage Chairs who lead local area groups, which total more than 17,000 members in 15 countries.

Vistage Best Practice Chair Dwight Frindt applauded his success: "David has become a passionate stand for Vistage in the greater Boise market. The successful launch of his new CE group is yet another expression of his vision."

David Spann is the Chairman of the first two Vistage Chief Executive groups and the first Key Executive Group in Idaho’s Treasure Valley. In addition, he has been a high-tech consultant and executive coach working with firms like CWI, PKG, Idaho Youth Ranch, Delta Dental, T-Sheets, MetaGeeks, Fidelity, Quest Diagnostics, Backcountry.com, Aquent and many more. Prior to becoming a Vistage Chair, David designed and facilitated the strategic focus process used in Utah, Iowa and now Idaho to grow the technology sectors of each state. The most recent success has come from the passage of IGEM—Idaho’s first statewide public policy designed for technology commercialization. David helped launch the Agile Software Development movement (a quality process similar to Lean Manufacturing and Design Build) and has served as the Operations Director for the International Association of Facilitators—the international certification organization for professional facilitation.
