My Vistage CEO Peer Group helped me double my business in less than a year.
“In a review of growth options for my business in a monthly meeting, they recommended acquisition as my best option. They led me through the due diligence process, and within 3 months I acquired a company about the same size as mine.
My chair then helped me create an integration checklist that enabled us to merge the two companies together seamlessly in a matter of months. He helped me identify where we were lacking expertise (e.g. marketing and human resources) and found resources to plug those gaps. My chair and Vistage Peer Group gave me the confidence and the know-how to make it happen, and I couldn’t have done it without them.”
– Mike Martin, CEO and owner of Carlson & Stewart Refrigeration
My chair helped save and turnaround our business.
“Two years ago we were losing money and were on a dangerous downward spiral. My Chair pushed us to cut our staff by 30% and to dramatically change the way we do business. Within 2 months we went from losing money to making money, and with his continued coaching, our business has been more profitable in the last two years than at any time in our 30 year history.
But more importantly, I am a better person because of the time I spend with my chair. Not only does he care about my business, he genuinely cares about me personally, and about what matters to me. He asks me great questions, and I always come away from our one-to-one coaching sessions feeling both challenged and energized.
My chair has a gift of challenging and improving my thinking, my decisions, and my results without being heavy handed. It is great to have someone in my corner that gets so juiced about seeing someone else’s success!”
