Discover What It Means - & What It Takes - To Be A CEBI Member

An Expert Sounding Board For Life's Noisy Moments

As a CEBI member, you’ll get recommendations and support from those who have been there. Our members have already faced and solved common problems leaders often confront, and they’re here to lend their guidance.

Members can use the community as a sounding board for things like:

  • Work Life Balance
  • Stress Management
  • Personal Matters
  • Employees Challenges
  • Compensation Models
  • Leadership Coaching
  • Strategic Planning
  • Technology Trends & Threats

A Personal Think Tank…Whenever You Need It

Being a leader can feel like living on a deserted island - it can be isolating & lonely. With CEBI, you'll join other like-minded CEOs & those in similar industries to share ideas, get valuable assistance & draw on hard-to-find expertise.

It’s not about the cost, it’s about the value that comes with the cost. CEBI members pay less for their membership, and gain so much more than competitor groups in return.

How We’re Different

Fewer Meetings, More Solutions

Fewer Meetings, More Solutions

The last thing you need is more meetings. At CEBI, we aim to give you more time back in your days. That’s why our meetings, which are professionally facilitated, are quarterly - not monthly and we keep them focused to drive high performance and accountability.

A True Community

Our members are rockstars in their business, but we check egos at the door. CEBI members are here to help one another grow, learn and succeed — we are a true team of peers, supporting one another.

A True Community
Growth Through Problem Solving

Growth Through Problem Solving

CEBI members have opportunities to problem solve and work through blockers on a consistent basis at each meeting, which allows for greater personal and professional development on an on-going basis.

Exclusivity, Confidentiality, No Solicitation

CEBI isn’t for everyone. We’re an elite group of business owners, presidents, and CEOs so confidentiality is crucial for our members and we do not allow solicitation of services.

What The Members Say


Jennifer Guthrie
Owner/President, In Flight Crew Connections

"CEBI gives me a sounding board of peers that I’m able to talk to, get advice from and get inspiration from. I’m a member of a couple groups, but this is the one I really like."

Mike Thurow
Owner/President, Spectrum Technologies

"The real value of CEBI that I wasn’t getting at Vistage was the opportunity to process an opportunity or issue and get feedback from peers. That’s priceless."

Rich Hagins
Owner/CEO, US&S

"The benefit of CEBI is its holistic approach. It not only helps you think about the financial side, but also the people part of the business. CEBI ranks #1 in my mind."

More Focused. More Strategic. More Effective. More Profitable.
