Vistage International Introduces Regional Strategy to Support its Community and Meet Increasing Demand

SAN DIEGO, CA, OCTOBER 9, 2013 – Vistage International is implementing a new strategy across the United States to address the needs of its fast growing community of CEOs and business owners and to meet the demands of a marketplace seeking out peer advisory boards in increasing numbers.  A team of more than 20 executives in ten regions will support Vistage Chairs (professional advisory board facilitators and executive coaches), in a move that will make the Vistage experience accessible to even more CEOs, business owners, and key executives. The announcement was made today by Vistage CEO, Leon Shapiro.

Shapiro stated, “Uncertainty in the economy, the complexity inherent in running a company today, and the emergence of a new generation of natural collaborators has prompted a resurgence of appreciation in the value of what we’ve been doing since 1957.  To meet the needs of our current members and to support the growing demand for Vistage services, we need more senior leadership in the field focused on the nuances of each region.”

With 11,000 members in the U.S. alone, and 17,000 members worldwide, increased demand for the value provided by peer advisory boards prompted the new strategy unveiled in today’s announcement.  “By building our brand and sharing our value proposition more aggressively in today’s favorable marketplace, our regional strategy will help us identify strong member candidates and new Vistage Chairs to support our growth,” Shapiro added.
