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.”
