HISTORY

“It is ok to be independent, but there is no reason to be alone.”

Comprised of chapters in the U.S., India, South Africa, Greece, and China, CEO Clubs International is a more than 40-year-old nonprofit, by-invitation-only membership association.

Its mission is to create a fostering environment for CEOs dedicated to improving the quality and profitability of their organizations through shared experience and personal growth.

CEO Clubs International was founded in 1977 by Dr. Joseph Mancuso, who left the chairmanship of the management Department of WPI in Worcester, trusting that there should be a better way to learn than solely focusing on individual growth, relying on handbooks and Academic achievements.

His vision was to create a premium community of high achievers who help each other grow their businesses “while cherishing some individual time and learning”

Today, CEO Clubs International, has over 15,000 active members in the US and an equal number of overseas, all consisting of CEOs leading multimillion organizations.

Over the past four decades, our Clubs have attracted distinguished personalities, such as: Ted Turner, Herb Kelleher, Peter Grace, T. Boone Pickens, Wally Amos, Zig Ziglar, Fred Smith, Richard DeVos, Royal Little, Edson De Castro, Steve Forbes, Victor Kiam, David Neeleman, Pat McGovern, Michael Bloomberg and Peter Peterson, just to name a few.
