Vistage is the worlds largest CEO coaching and peer advisory organization for small and midsize business (SMB) leaders. We offer the most effective approach for SMB enterprises to achieve better results and grow faster as well as for SMB leaders to maximize their impact.

The 22,000+ members we serve are CEOs, owners and executives of SMB organizations located across the US and in 22 counties around the world. These SMB executives typically spend a day or more with Vistage every month to immerse themselves in our comprehensive platform for making better decisions, getting better results and becoming better leaders. Our platform features three core elements: valuable perspectives from a trusted group of peers, professional guidance and meeting facilitation from an accomplished business leader (the Chair), and deep insights from subject matter experts.

Vistage was founded more than 60 years ago and weve grown every year since then by innovating to stay on the cutting-edge of business and being relentless in delivering value to our members. Our success is demonstrated by the fact that Vistage member companies grow 2.2 times faster than non-Vistage peer companies. Learn more about us at www.vistage.com.
