"Together we are reaching new heights!"

— VA CEOs Roundtable

Why Join VACEOs?

a thought experiment

Imagine. You take your seat. To your right is the president of a prominent engineering firm. To your left, the owner of a beloved local retailer. Across from you, a partner in a fast-growing software company. 

You raise an issue your business is facing and several peers relate how they met similar challenges. 

Suddenly you realize—you’re not alone.

This is what happens in a VACEOs peer roundtable group. A small selection of top business executives come together to support each other.

A VACEOs roundtable isn’t about networking (although you’ll make important connections) and it’s not about getting advice (although you’ll learn and grow). These groups are about sharing stories to help you avoid the mistakes others have made, broaden your perspective and realize new options and opportunities.


  • A sounding board of experienced CEOs
  • Insights on key challenges and opportunities
  • Perspective beyond a single company or industry
  • Network of thought leaders and subject matter experts
  • Reduction in stress and isolation—an escape from feeling “stuck”
  • Accelerated professional and personal growth and success

Over 300 Virginia CEOs and counting turn to VACEOs for the support they need to become better business leaders. Here’s what a few of them have to say:
