The Chief Executive Officers Clubs Worldwide is an organization which creates a nurturing environment for CEOs dedicated to improving the quality and profitability of their enterprises through shared experience and personal growth. It was founded by Dr. Joseph Mancuso in 1977 as he left the chairmanship of the management Department of WPI in Worcester. Mr. Joe believed there should be a better way to learn than sitting in classrooms reading books and taking notes and exams.
Today CEO Clubs is one of the oldest and largest associations for CEOs and entrepreneurs worldwide, serving as a global business network and leadership development organization. Comprised of chapters in the U.S.. India, South Africa, Greece, China, Pakistan and many more countries. CEO Clubs is a 44 year old, by invitation only membership association. Members must be CEOs of businesses who have above $2,000,000 in annual sales. Our average club member has $20,000,000 in annual sales. A member of one chapter is a member of all chapters. Full Members are entitled to attend all events in all Chapters, free of charge. Prospective members are encouraged to attend a CEO Club meeting as a guest.
Over the past four decades, CEO Clubs have attracted many national figures 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, Donald Trump, and Peter Peterson, just to name a few who have addressed the Clubs. All of these past luncheon talks are free to download in our TALKS section. Be sure to listen to the talks by Frank “The Conman” Abagnale and Bill “The Unknown Billionaire” Bartmann. They are tied with the better known, Ted Turner, as most popular. We also count among our lifetime members the founders of America Online, Jim Kimsey and Steve Case.
Joe’s 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, has over 16,000 active members in the US and an equal number of overseas, all consisting of CEOs leading multimillion organizations.
