Rob Abele Launches New Vistage Group in Minneapolis-St. Paul Market

San Diego, July 2, 2014— Vistage Chair Rob Abele 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. Abele is part of a community of more than 400 Vistage Chairs who lead local area groups, which total more than 45,000 members in 15 countries.

Vistage Regional Executive Dave Bartel applauded his success: “Targeted, mindful, caring are words that come to mind when asked how I thought Rob would do as a Chair. I had the pleasure to be at his group launch on Monday, June 30, 2014, in Minneapolis. The core of his group – the founding members – reflects those words! A great group and the first meeting felt like they had been together for a long time rather than this being the first meeting. Rob opened the meeting and continued the day by leading by example. He was willing to be first and let others know it was OK to not have the answer, but to ask others for help and input. Powerful first meeting and the start of a wonderful Vistage group.”

Rob Abele has over 30 years’ experience with Fortune 500 companies, having held numerous management roles ranging from Commercial Lender, Branch Manager to Executive Vice President, President (CEO). He has demonstrated expertise in driving sales and revenue growth both organically and by acquisition, in asset optimization, and in overall organizational function for national and multi-national companies.
