San Diego, June 27, 2014— Vistage Chair Ken Hedberg has recently launched a new chief executive group in Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN. The new Vistage group will meet monthly to discuss business issues, share expertise, and provide one another confidential help to achieve their goals. Hedberg is part of a community of more than 400 Vistage Chairs who lead local area groups, which total more than 21,000 members in 15 countries.
Vistage Regional Executive Dave Bartel applauded his success: “I had the privilege of working with Ken as he moved from his thinking “I would like to become a Chair,” to “I am going to be a Chair!” Ken continued his forward momentum of building his group by using his business skills he has developed over many years; but more importantly by capitalizing on his mentors and learning from their style. Open to suggestion and ready to adapt if necessary are just some of Ken’s strengths.”
Ken is a proven consultant and senior executive with more than thirty-five years’ experience, providing advice and leadership in a wide variety of industries and organizational types, in both global enterprise and small, high growth situations. His experience includes a three-year assignment starting up European operations and expanding in Asia while living in Brussels, Belgium. He maintains personal, business and professional contacts throughout Western Europe and the UK, and in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore, Tokyo, Jakarta, Sydney and Melbourne. Ken has a BA in Economics, a BS in Business Administration, and an MBA in Finance, all from the University of Minnesota.
