Business Summary
Vistage is one of the leading peer networks for executives of small and mid-market companies.  In 1957, Robert Nourse founded The Executive Committee (TEC). This group later changed its name to Vistage. With the goal of creating a community for business leaders, Vistage has private advisory groups for CEOs, senior executives and business owners. Vistage meetings are guided by coaches who are primarily retired CEOs or management consultants.

Members are assigned to intimate peer groups of 8 to 15 members with a facilitator who is called a “Chair.”  Through monthly group meetings and personal coaching sessions, business leaders have the opportunity to discuss business challenges and find resolutions with their peers and coaches.
