NEW YORK and SAN DIEGO, Sept. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Axial, the largest network for professionals who run, advise, finance, and acquire private companies, and Vistage International, the leading coaching and peer advisory network for CEOs and business executives, have today announced a strategic partnership to benefit their respective members.
As part of the relationship, Axial and Vistage will partner on educational webinars for their members this fall, and Axial will participate as a Gold Sponsor for upcoming Vistage Executive Summits. Their first collaboration will be a webinar taking place on September 12, titled: What's the "Right" Price for Your Business? Understanding and Bridging the Valuation Gap
Representing 18,000 small and mid-sized businesses across the globe, Vistage is an ideal partner for Axial as it aims to extend its reach to include the communities that private company executives trust and turn to for guidance and advice about their businesses.
Both organizations share the common objective of empowering leaders at private companies with the advice and relationships they need to successfully grow and run their businesses.
"We are thrilled to partner with Vistage and leverage their premiere brand. They've built an outstanding and vital service for private company executives. We look forward to working closely with them to offer educational content and valuable tools that help their members find growth opportunities, access capital, or plan their exit," said Sam Jacobs, Senior Vice President of Sales and Business Development for Axial.
