Vistage International Recognized for Training Excellence

SAN DIEGO, December 10, 2010 – Vistage International is among an elite group of 125 companies acknowledged for its learning and development programs.

Training magazine, the leading business publication for learning and development professionals, recently named Vistage among its Top 125, a prestigious list that includes companies such as Microsoft, UPS, Verizon, Bank of America, Loews Hotels and Vanguard.

“It certainly is an honor to be among an elite group of companies that excel in training and development,” said Michael Molina, Vistage Chief Human Resources Officer. “It’s also a validation of the tremendous value the Chair community provides Vistage members in helping them become better leaders for their companies.”

Award winners will learn their specific ranking on February 7, 2011, at the Training 2011 Conference & Expo in San Diego. A black-tie gala that night will include a countdown to No. 1.

Now in its 10th year, the Training Top 125 is the only report that ranks companies unsurpassed in harnessing human capital. The awards are based on three different criteria: training program/scope, training infrastructure and delivery, and evaluation/metrics.
