The following is a publication by Vistage Worldwide, Inc., in recognition of Mike Pelfini for launching and chairing a new peer group in the San Francisco Bay Area, CA in 2022:
“We are pleased to announce that Chair Mike Pelfini has launched Key Group #9610 in San Rafael, CA!
A few words from Chair Mike Pelfini
“This Key group almost built itself. I shared the Leadership Evaluation Guide with the Chief Executive members in my practice and most found it to be super useful in assessing the development needs of their teams. I’m launching this group at the request of a majority of these CE members, and their enthusiasm and eagerness to have their key leaders engage in the Vistage peer experience was momentum-generating for me. Thanks to Matt Malconian, Tim Call and some of my VCG colleagues for the additional encouragement and support. Onward and upward!”
Special message from Best Practice Chair Carl Arnold
“I would like to commend Mike Pelfini on launching this new Key Executive Group. He has been a Chair for over 5 years and it is exciting that he has started a new Key group. I know that these members will be very lucky to have Mike offering his vast experience and expertise. Congratulations Mike!”
Special message from Senior Vice President, West Region, Tim Call
“Congratulations Mike on the launch of the newest Key Executive Group, in what can be described as a one-month build. The precision you took to launch this group was incredible. Starting with your decision to have a conversation with each of the Chief Executive members and giving them the space to realize the importance of leadership development in their companies. Then, sharing with these CE members the “Leadership Evaluation Guide” introducing it as a tool to guide them in creating an overarching plan to develop their team members and improve employee retention.”
