About The Board of Veteran CEOs
The Board of Veteran CEOs was created to serve as a confidant to CEOs of midsize to large companies. The resource we provide is exclusive access to retired CEOs who have walked in your shoes and grown their enterprise to Fortune 1,000 status and beyond. Some of the retired CEOs who serve as Advisory Members have led companies like Dun & Bradstreet, Ben & Jerry’s, Max Factor, and Harrah’s Hotel & Casinos. In addition, some of our Advisory Members are current CEOs of Fortune 500s, including companies such as NCR and AC Nielsen. Access to the Advisory Members takes the form of roundtable discussions, one-on-one telephone conversations, and private face-to-face meetings. The roundtable discussions occur every other month. They are held over a two- hour breakfast between an intimate group of 6-8 sitting CEOs and 1-2 Advisory Members. Participation in these meetings requires a personal invitation - no exceptions.
