Vistage Group Launch in Louisville

Vistage Chair Michael Strickland launches new private advisory board for small businesses in Louisville

San Diego, October 6, 2015— Vistage Chair Michael Strickland has recently launched a new small business group in the Louisville, KY market. The new Vistage members will meet monthly to discuss business issues, share expertise, and provide one another confidential help to achieve their goals. Strickland is part of a community of more than 800 Chairs worldwide who lead local area groups, which total more than 20,000 members in 16 countries.

Vistage Regional Executive Rob Knauer applauded his success: “Michael, congratulations on the successful launch of your third Vistage group and the first SB group in the Commonwealth of Kentucky! As everyone knows, launching a new group is no easy undertaking. Michael’s experience of coaching small businesses and having been a small business owner himself makes this a perfect fit for the Small Business Peer Group he has put together. Great work Michael, we know that with you as their leader, your new members are in for a great Vistage peer group experience.”

For over 20 years, Michael has invested well over 15,000 hours consulting, advising and working directly with CEOs and business owners helping them take their business to the next level. First as a financial executive, followed by a business owner and now a Vistage Chair. His role primarily involved strategic consulting, growth strategies, operational execution, and financial management of these companies. I have been a leadership mentor and CEO advisor since 2008 for small and large businesses in the Louisville area that represent over $800M in gross revenue and more than 1000 employees. Michael has a BS in Business from Western Kentucky University and served the US during the Viet Nam Conflict. Over the course of his career, he has had the privilege to help lead many business units and business leaders and is truly humbled to partner with Vistage to continue his passion.
