Vistage is a leading business advisory and executive coaching organization that has been helping CEOs, business owners and executives transform and improve their businesses for more than 60 years.
As Vistage Chair for Southern Maine, George leverages his 40+ years of experience in executive leadership and consultancy to guide local business leaders through growth and change periods that affect their own personal lives and those of their employees, companies and communities.
