San Diego, January 20, 2016— Vistage Chair Mark Ellsworth has announced the formation of the newest chief executive group for business owners and CEOs in Omaha, NE.  As one of more than 800 Vistage Chairs, Ellsworth will help his group members get results using a proprietary issue processing method to tackle their most challenging business questions. More than 45,000 executives, business owners and CEOs around the world rely on local area groups to get the most out of their businesses.

Vistage Regional Executive Dave Bartel applauded his success: “Mark has been an accountant his entire business career.  He shatters the mental image many of us may have for accountants!  His caring and concern coupled with his ability to listen and ask great questions is just some of his strengths.  My first conversation with Mark about becoming a Chair I could sense a deep commitment to wanting to give back. Omaha has another valuable asset to support the community and the other Chairs.  Congratulations Mark and welcome to Vistage and the journey in front of you!”
