San Diego, June 28, 2016— Vistage Chair Kevin McKeown has announced the formation of his newest chief executive group in the Seattle area. McKeown will help his CEO group members get results using a proprietary issue processing method to tackle their most challenging business questions. More than 22,000 executives, business owners and CEOs around the world rely on local area groups to get the most out of their businesses.
Vistage Regional Executive Tim Call applauded his success: “The things I really appreciate about Kevin are his business development discipline and his relentless determination to launch his first group. He started fast and came out of the gates quickly even though he ran into a few obstacles. Kevin received commitments from seven candidates to join his group, unfortunately two of them were represented by the same industry. He moved these candidates to other chairs in the Seattle marketplace while continuing his member acquisition strategy for his ideal group. He received commitments from 12 people to attend a second breakfast executive event, including nine prospects and three potential transitioning members. He ran a fantastic meeting which included a speaker and issue processing. He now has 10 members committed to his first group including all three of the transitioning members. What a great example for all of us to never give up and to work your plan.”
