San Diego, March 13, 2015— Vistage Chair Diane Cullen-Levin has recently launched a new chief executive group in the Seattle, WA market. The new Vistage members, joining a community of more than 410 local CEOs, executives and business owners, will meet monthly to discuss business issues, share expertise, and provide one another confidential help to achieve their goals. Cullen-Levin is part of a community of more than 400 Chairs worldwide who lead local area groups, which total more than 21,000 members in 20 countries.
Vistage Regional Executive Craig Stevenson applauded her success: “Congratulations Diane. From the very beginning Diane has shown focus and determination in building her first Vistage group. Diane knew who she wanted and methodically went after them one-by-one. She is a professional in all senses and her members are very fortunate to have her as their group leader. Welcome to the next steps in your journey as a Chair.”
Diane Cullen-Levin believes the key to building revenue is growing relationships with the right clients. For the first decade of her career, Diane worked as a project manager for large, international firms across the architectural, real estate and construction industries. It wasn’t until starting her own architectural firm in 1991 that her focus began to switch to client relationships. She experienced the challenges of business-to-business sales and saw first-hand the power of a good client-focused strategy. After ten years as CEO of the architecture practice, Cullen-Levin sold the company to expand into a global marketplace. Since 2007, Diane has helped professional service firms – in both North America and the United Kingdom – implement successful client-focused strategies.About Vistage Worldwide, Inc.
