Vistage Chair Joe Liss launches new private advisory board for chief executives in New Orleans

San Diego, June 19, 2015— Vistage Chair Joe Liss has recently launched a new chief executive group in the New Orleans, LA market. The new Vistage members will meet monthly to discuss business issues, share expertise, and provide one another confidential help to achieve their goals. Liss is part of a community of more than 800 Chairs worldwide who lead local area groups, which total more than 45,000 members in 35 countries.

Vistage Regional Executive Brant Houston applauded his success: “Joe Liss has been beyond persistent in building this new Group over the past several months. He had plenty of reasons to give it up, but he did not! I am thrilled that Joe is providing the opportunity for another group of leaders in the New Orleans area to create extraordinary value for themselves, their companies, their employees, and their families. Congratulations, Joe.”

After retiring from his CPA firm in 2010, Joe has done many things, but only what he enjoys. This includes representing taxpayers before IRS, sitting as an arbitrator in cases brought before FINRA, functioning as an outsourced CFO for various businesses and leading tours of his beloved French Quarter in New Orleans and overseas in Italy. But above all, he has now launched a Vistage Chair where he can utilize his gifts and talents giving back to the community where he has lived since his high school days. Joe lives in Metairie with his wife Annette and their 5 dogs.
