The Vistage story: 60 years of cultivating success

It started simply enough: Businessman Bob Nourse brought together several Milwaukee-area executives in 1957 to help each other solve their businesses challenges. He made sure they were from non-competing industries and kept conversations confidential. He also brought in business experts to share their insights.
Nourse’s formula spurred such remarkable success that it wasn’t long before his Midwestern business became a thriving international company with 24,000 members in 20 countries.
The past 60 years have seen Vistage grow and evolve to serve our increasingly diverse and sophisticated member businesses. But we always stay true to Bob Nourse’s vision: To help high-integrity leaders make great decisions that benefit their companies, families and communities.

Vistage powers performance

Vistage member companies grew 2.2 times faster than average small and medium-sized businesses, according to a 2017 analysis of Dun & Bradstreet data.
