In this month’s member highlight section, I feature Mitch Berger who joined Vistage NYC a little over six years ago.
As Chairman of Howard-Sloan Search, he has grown the brands to be preeminent names in the staffing industry. Howard-Sloan Search was recently awarded Top 10 largest executive search firms in New York City by Crain’s.
The greatest take away is that the time away from the business for the Vistage meetings (which was my biggest concern) allows me to think about the business and has been the greatest asset.
My advice to other CEO’s is to join Vistage so you can get away from your business once/month and see your business from 30k feet above.
Mitch is an entrepreneur, talent developer, career counselor, professional coach, hands-on leader, positive go-getter, avid learner, and active Vistage member. Mitch is also a very involved member of the M&A community having merged over a dozen staffing firms. Mitch has an intense focus on doubling the size of the business over the next 2 years while maintaining its exciting culture which includes an average tenure of 10+ years.
Please join me in congratulating Mitch Berger!
