San Diego, March 24, 2015— Vistage Chair Sheldon Goldman has announced the formation of his newest small business group in the Santa Barbara area.

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 Jason Bateman applauded his success: “Shelley is a shining example of drive and passion as he was able to launch our first ever Small Business group in Santa Barbara just one month after his initial marketing event! His new SB launch is also our 3rd group ever in the Santa Maria-Santa Barbara, CA market for Vistage. Shelley has also started to collaborate with Niels Johnson-Lameijer, our first Chair in Santa Barbara and as a result we should have an even stronger Vistage presence in the local business community. Shelley is direct, passionate, business savvy, very meticulous and is going above and beyond the usual meeting planning to make his group a high performing advisory board. ”
