Vistage Chair AR Smith launches new executive coaching group for chief executives in South Central Pennsylvania

San Diego, March 27, 2021 – Vistage Chair AR Smith recently launched a new chief executive group in the South Central Pennsylvania market. Founded in 1957, Vistage brings together exclusive groups of high-performing CEOs through a proven leadership experience that delivers results both personally and professionally. When leaders come together in their confidential monthly Vistage private advisory board meetings, they gain the perspective, clarity and support to help them become better leaders and accelerate their company’s growth. More than 45,000 Vistage members worldwide have access to expert speakers, personalized coaching sessions and international networking.

Smith said, “I am looking forward to empowering the CEOs in this Vistage group to live out their legacy of leadership personally, professionally and in their communities.”

Smith has always been passionate in building high performing teams throughout her career in banking, financial services and more recently in her coaching practice.  She co-founded a nationally chartered bank, which obtained the ranking of the top 50 mortgage lenders in U.S. prior to its sale in 2010.  Then, she launched a consulting practice focused on delivering custom technology solutions to banks and mortgage companies.  When working with clients on executing their technology platforms, she recognized the time she spent coaching on team dynamics and with executives on change management, and she shifted her consulting focus to coaching high performing executives and their respective teams.
