Work on Your Business with CEOs, Executives and Owners Just Like You

Since 1957, Vistage has been helping business owners, CEOs and executives become better leaders, make better decisions and achieve better results. Vistage has been in New Mexico since 1975.

Our Professionally Facilitated Advisory Peer Groups Dig Deep on Challenging and Important Issues

Vistage New Mexico groups meet once a month to solve problems, evaluate opportunities and work on a variety of strategic and operational issues. Our groups are confidential forums of experienced business owners and executives who rely on each other for wisdom, feedback and counsel.

And Then It Happens

Through these expertly facilitated monthly discussions, members gain perspective, identify options and commit to a plan of action. In subsequent meetings, members are held accountable for progress on their commitments.

Our Chairs, Many of Whom are Former CEOs, Expertly Coach Our Peer Groups

Put a dozen or so high performing CEOs and business owners in a room and the potential is enormous. The role of a Vistage chair is to ensure discussions are focused on identifying core issues, achieving clarity and to get the best thinking from members around the table.
