Big things seem to happen when CEOs come together. The Alliance enables CEOs to help each other in strategic and powerful ways.
Paul Witkay Founder & CEO, Alliance of Chief Executives
The Alliance of CEOs has definitely created a much closer bridge for leaders between two hemispheres. It's a fantastic organization!
Nichola Quail Founder & CEO, Insights Exchange
The Alliance of CEOs has been critical to the success of my career and my development as a leader and CEO. It's one of the most transformational things I have ever done. I'm not generally a "joiner," but my relationships with my fellow CEOs is strong and deep and I've relied heavily on my group to provide me with honest counsel and deep insights into the problems I've faced. The folks in my group are among the most intelligent, talented and successful people that I have ever met. I'm proud to be a member of the Alliance.
Cal Lai Chairman & CEO, Ask.Vet
The Alliance of CEOs has been such an important part of both my professional and personal life and it’s been a privilege to be part of this purposeful organization that you’ve built.
Lori Bush CEO, Solvasa Beauty
Thoughtful, experienced insights that are always interesting in content. I also like that people throw out some totally out-of-the-box ideas once the obvious things are on the table. It is exceptionally valuable and exactly why I love the Alliance.
Mark Forchette President & CEO, Delphinus Medical Technologies
My Alliance conversations have helped me to think more broadly, and have contributed significantly to elevating me to my Board of Directors role at Ooma.
Ravi Narula Chief Financial Officer, Ooma
As a CEO in Sweden, I am thankful for being a part of the Alliance’s amazing network. I look forward to the first time we can meet in real life in the Bay Area!
Fredrik Svedberg Founder & CEO, LogTrade Technology
I would advocate that any CEO join the Alliance to be able to be more effective in their job, and build additional value in their business.
Daniel Riedel Chief Executive Officer, New Context Services
I feel fortunate to be in such a fantastic mix of minds who are comfortable saying what's on their minds. And there genuinely is diversity of thought, temperament and experience.
Evan Bailyn CEO & Founder, First Page Sage
The Alliance provides exceptional value for me. The nature of our confidential interactions with other senior executives, and the broad range of topics we discuss that transcend our various industries, enables a unique professional growth opportunity that goes beyond traditional networking.
Peter Meechan Chief Corporate Development Officer, Automation Anywhere
Life-Assist’s success and my growth was set on a path 10 years ago when I showed up at my first Alliance meeting. I vividly remember how nervous I was about my ability to contribute and ... boy, did I learn and still learn! I am so grateful to my fellow CEOs and the relationships formed during these years.
Ramona Davis President/CEO, Life-Assist
I'm a lifelong learner, and the Alliance is a critical part of that.
John Murphy CEO, Virtual Incision Corporation
There is no app that can replace the highly valuable and meaningful connections I’ve made through the Alliance.
Dirk Schapeler Head of Global Innovation Division, NGK Spark Plugs
I think of the Alliance as a sounding board of peers that can provide very candid and strategic input to issues that a CEO may be facing. I highly recommend this CEO group to anyone who may be considering joining.
Gini Deshpande Founder & CEO, NuMedii
When I come to the Alliance, I get "Aha!" moments all the time. I joined the Alliance in 2008, and my revenues have grown more than 5x over that time.
Mark Tacchi President & CEO, Vendini
There's multiple layers of benefits in the Alliance setting, beginning with friendships and building relationships.
Craig Goehring CEO, Brown and Caldwell
The Alliance, to me, is really about learning how to be a "best-in-class" leader in an unfettered learning environment.
Mathai Mammen Global Head of R&D for the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson
The saying that it's lonely at the top is true. CEOs have few independent confidants and my fellow Alliance CEOs have no vested interest other than to apply their experience to each others' business issues.
Dave Dutton CEO, MDC Vacuum Products
I can easily say that joining the Alliance was one of the best professional decisions I have made.
Kirsten Bay President & CEO, Cyber adAPT
There's so many excuses not to spend the time, not to join, not to be part of the Alliance. Trust me - from someone who's been doing this for awhile, works with CEOs and knows the business environment - there are always twice as many reasons why you should be joining.
Kristen McAlister President, Cerius Interim Executive Solutions
By thinking through the problems of others, it helps to work out your CEO muscle in ways that you don't get to every day. That really translates into solving your own problems.
Doug Leeds CEO, IAC Publishing
Other CEOs have dealt with the issues I face and help identify strategies that have worked for them.
Dennis Heath Founding Principal, MBH Architects
It's sort of like a sanity check each month.
Belinda Tsao-Nivaggioli President & CEO, CN Partners
You find yourself often thinking from a slightly different perspective than you would if you were sitting in your office.
Dan Peterson Founder and Chairman, Loyale
Sometimes a single conversation can put your business on a better path. This is why I love the Alliance.
Anne Bisagno President, Xantrion
The fresh approach suggested by my Alliance Group was extremely effective in my latest board meeting.
Lisa Im Chairman/President/CEO, Performant Financial
The Alliance is a group of CEOs, like myself, facing similar challenges, in an array of different businesses. And, that is an invaluable source of input, and perspective, completely unbiased, completely confidential and extremely valuable. So it makes the Alliance worth every minute that I invest my time in.
Paul Lipman CEO, BullGuard
As you work day to day, you get bogged down in how you do things, without thinking, 'is that the right way to do things or is that the only way to do things?' The Alliance gives you other options, other perspectives.
Oliver Mellows Principal/Controller, MBH Architects
My Alliance colleagues are always there for me – month after month after month. They are a consistent and unwavering source of renewal and strength, and a reminder that us lone wolves are never alone.
John De Santis CEO & Chairman, HyTrust
The Alliance of CEOs is a group of very capable, interesting people who are dedicated to building businesses of one sort or another, and sharing their experiences with one another - their problems, their pain points and their successes with others like them.
Paul White Founder & CEO, Muir Services
CEOs need to try out the Alliance because it's "experiential." The value only comes from trying it and experiencing it.
Dave Summa Managing Director, Business Model Innovations
