We're here to support business leaders during COVID-19


Founder’s Message

These are the times that the Alliance of Chief Executives was built for.

We built our Alliance community to help leaders be more effective, confident and successful.  During the dot.com bust in 2001 and the economic crash of 2008, the Alliance enabled CEOs and top executives to develop clear, actionable strategies and fresh approaches to navigate their organizations through those challenging times. Today, the COVID-19 crisis has dramatically affected every person and business on this planet, and during these unprecedented times, we can all make a real difference.

I am truly proud and inspired by the leaders of our Alliance community who are stepping up to lead their organizations through this crisis. Their impactful work is not only keeping our families, employees and communities safe, but also preserving the foundation of businesses and preparing for a future that will be unpredictable and different.

These are times when leadership matters most. Together, we’ll make it through this crisis and shape our future to be better than our past.


Paul Witkay, Founder & CEO

Keeping You Informed

  • Check out the beneficial and timely resources shared by our Alliance members. Our Alliance of CEOs Resource Directory to Deal with COVID-19 is updated daily.

  • Each week we survey our Alliance members to gain a snapshot of how the Coronavirus crisis is affecting their business. Our intent is to provide a quick and easy way to take the temperature of how Bay Area businesses are experiencing the Coronavirus crisis, and identify the depth of impact to our diverse economy, when business activity will begin to trend back up and when we might return to a new state of normal.
