Become Part of a Powerful Group of Chief Executives

Chief Executives Guild


Established in 2006 by and for CEOs as one of the nation's premier CEO forums. Membership is limited to qualified, member-approved chief executives.

Meetings are for chief executives only — closed to employees, the public, and the press. Members never send substitutes or bring staff to meetings.

Exclusivity provides a safe place for chief executives to share candid comments and concerns with peers in total confidence. Member discussions and conversations are always 100% "off-the-record".


Chief executives and acclaimed thought leaders offer outside perspective, actionable ideas, and innovative tactics that CEOs need to continually improve their organization's performance.

Members exchange knowledge, concerns, and recommendations about the ongoing issues that their businesses are facing and discuss which strategies work best.

Open, candid, and informed discussions generate the type of practical wisdom CEOs require to execute successfully in the real, rapidly changing world.


Members strategically expand their professional network and build influence outside their industry and community.

Members gain a network of trusted peers who willingly share their knowledge, ideas, and unbiased strategic advice when requested.

Members build valuable, lasting relationships with successful, high-caliber business leaders in their local area and across the country.

A Brain Trust of CEO Wisdom


Despite having every second of my life booked, I took a big chance and joined the Chief Executives Guild. The members of my CEO Advisory Board included the CEOs of Dave’s Killer Breads, LEDlenser, Biamp Systems, and other complex mid-market companies. Working with them and my coach, I was able to successfully implement innovative strategic changes and exceed revenue expectations. This is one of several reasons why I find the Chief Executives Guild so valuable and strongly recommend it to other CEOs.

—Wendy Collie, CEO, New Seasons Markets
& former SVP & GM of Starbucks

This CEO organization pulls together some of the finest chief executives into engaging and provocative forums. The caliber of both the members and meetings is impressive. Personally, when I leave these meetings I am re-charged and refreshed. This is only possible because of the leadership's deep passion for connecting the latent needs that chief executives have with the latest ideas, techniques, and solutions.

—Denise Nemchev, President & CEO, Stanley Bostitch

The Chief Executives Guild has have continually provided exceptional value for the time and money invested. My CEO Advisory Board and CEO L2 Coach have increased my leadership competence in so many areas and keep me focused on the big picture. Having peers to go for perspective and advice when tackling the tough issues that I face as the top decision maker has been invaluable.

—Roger Lord, President, Mason, Bruce & Girard

My CEO Advisory Board is a think tank of chief executives who are totally dedicated to each other’s and my success. Together we’ve untangled some pretty knotty problems. It makes such a difference to have a group of CEOs, who are people you trust, like and respect, looking out for you.

—Rakesh Sridharan, President, LEDlenser

I've been participating in the CEO Wisdom Exchange, a CEO Advisory Board and coaching for over a year and find all to be extremely valuable. The candid dialogue with peers has helped me better tackle tough challenges and increase my company's competitive edge in tough times.

—Larry Fox, President, OBEC Consulting Engineers

Nobody outside the CEO role gets the complexities of what we deal with. In the Chief Executives Guild everyone gets it. And thanks to the collective wisdom of the members of my CEO Advisory Board, I’ve been able to tackle my biggest challenges quicker and more effectively.

—Rick Jung, Chairman & CEO, Clinicent

The Chief Executive Guild's CEO Wisdom Exchange meetings are invaluable; the peer conversations are strategic and substantive, and I always gain an important actionable insight and/or better approach to effectively deal with a problem I need to address.
