St. Louis business community welcomes Jonathan Jones’ newest Vistage chief executive group

San Diego, February 16, 2015— Vistage Chair Jonathan Jones has announced the formation of his newest chief executive group in the St. Louis market. Jones will help his CEO group members get results using a proprietary issue processing method to tackle their most challenging business questions. More than 21,000 executives, business owners and CEOs around the world rely on local area groups to get the most out of their businesses.

Vistage Best Practice Chair Allen Hauge applauded his success: “Jonathan’s launch efforts are a model that every new Chair should emulate. He brings a wonderful combination of persistence, self-reliance, intelligence and experience that will serve his members well. As his BPC, I’ve often had to remind myself during VCG meetings that he had not even launched yet as he displayed a level of involvement, focus and participation skills that are usually only found in veteran chairs. I am delighted, but not at all surprised, that Jonathan is launching as expected.”

Jonathan Jones brings over 30 years of business experience, including 14 years of executive coaching and organization development experience focused on helping privately held businesses create cultures that engage employees and ultimately increase profitability. His culture-centric consulting approach has helped businesses owners prepare their organizations for leadership transition while still growing their companies sustainably and ultimately improving the quality of life for those involved. Jones holds a BA in Computer Science and Math from Westminster College in Fulton, MO.
