    The EACC has sponsored a successful staff and member led Executive Roundtable program for nearly 10 years.  In recent months, we heard from members that a more robust and structured program would be favored. Now, the EACC has partnered with Jamie Overbey, Vistage Chair, to develop a unique and professionally managed forum composed of a Vistage Certified Chair and EACC members.
     
    Jamie’s experience spans 25 years of building businesses ranging from $30 million to $300 million in revenue. He contributes general management perspectives and deep expertise in strategy, marketing and corporate development. Jamie earned his MBA from Northwestern University’s Kellogg Graduate School of Management, where he was an Austin Scholar, and his BA in Economics from the University of Virginia.

    Vistage is a leading peer executive organization with over 20,000 members across 16 countries.  The proven processes and ever-expanding methodologies of Vistage will be used to guide and lead the program, while the content will focus on the multifaceted topics encountered in EACC members' international (inbound and outbound) companies.

    “The EACC Executive Roundtable was a great place for me to get feedback and to gain unique insights from area executives. Through experience and the growth of my company, however, this format didn’t provide enough structure or focused discussion for the problems I was now facing. My experience with Vistage has been excellent. CEO’s lack a true cohort where they can have both frank and open discussions, but also be coached to make better decisions – this is exactly what I’ve received from my Vistage cohort and chair these last 7+ months.” - John Baines, President, Hahn Automation

    This peer advisory experience will result in distinct competitive advantages and improved results for participating companies and has a long and quantified record of accelerating revenue growth in member companies, as well as the leadership capabilities of participating executives.  Such an Executive Forum geared toward the unique interests and challenges of C-level executives leading global operations is another unique benefit the EACC brings to its members.

    This Forum is built for senior executives with significant P&L and decision making responsibility.  In this Forum, titles will vary greatly based on the variety of international standards, yet expected members will be fulfilling C-Level roles such as Chief Executive Officer, President, or Managing Director of North America. While organizational scale may also vary, most members will have more than 25 employees in their global region and some will have hundreds.  Revenue managed by participating executives will again vary, but will typically exceed $5 million U.S. dollars.

    Participation will be limited to a maximum of 20 members. Further, expert speaker workshops will be geared toward the needs and interests of founding members with an emphasis on international business topics.
