Got it


Through coaching more than 100,000 CEOs and business owners over 60 years, we understand how leaders learn. Growth often starts from a place of comfort. It demands an honest assessment, vision and courage.

Reaching the next stage of the business life cycle typically requires shifts in strategy and the organization. The CEO cannot stay the same either. They must evolve their leadership to bridge where the business is and where it needs to be. And, of course, they find the right peers who can help them think through their toughest decisions in their Vistage groups.

In this issue, we capture lessons from members who’ve surpassed key inflection points: a Seattle entrepreneur who grew her handmade jewelry business while maintaining quality and the company’s unique culture; a nonprofit leader who scaled her organization to help meet the needs of Pittsburgh’s aging population; and the CEO of a well-established company who embraced a new generation of sellers and buyers.

We’ll also introduce the Vistage Chair from Houston who’s earned the highest honor for her approach to helping her members. And we’ll share some amazing stories about members who are finding fulfillment after exiting their businesses.

I hope you find stories that inspire you and lessons that spark fresh ideas. Thank you for making this community the very best place for helping executives grow their businesses and develop as leaders. And that’s exactly why members come and stay with Vistage.

All the best,


Sam Reese
