Brian Oken, Peer Group Chair, CEO Coach and Organizational Expert

My purpose is to help you amplify your success, both personally and professionally.

Regardless of who you are or your standing, we can all benefit from continuous improvement and build on the success we’ve had.

My mission is rooted in helping business owners and CEOs live their leadership potential.

Vistage members see a 5.2% higher growth rate than non Vistage members and my private clients typically see a 30X return on their investment.

We’ve created a community of business people who challenge each others assumptions, directions and decisions.

By doing so, better decisions are made faster and more effectively.

Working and collaborating with 12 other business owners and CEOs will eliminate the isolation you feel as a business owner, will give you proven ways to increase productivity and accountability and virtually guarantees your company will have the foundation to sustainably thrive for years to come.

My Story

I grew up in a family of entrepreneurs surrounded by people with grit, perseverance and a drive to succeed. By the time I was 29, I was President of a unit of a $2bil public company. After over 20 years in general management, including President and CEO roles, I opened my own firm working with business owners who value a great place to work culture while achieving superior financial results.

The Official Bio

Business owners, CEOs, Presidents regularly call on me as a trusted advisor to help them grow their companies, increase profitability and create the highest performing workplace cultures. My clients achieve significant year over year sales and profit growth.

As a CEO and President, I’ve turned around underperforming companies in both the public and private sectors including as a non-family CEO of a long-standing family business.

While naturally friendly and approachable, I’m also a no-nonsense straight-talker driven by results. When leading planning sessions, I work very hard to get executive teams talking. I ask penetrating questions challenging assumptions and forcing executives to re-evaluate current positioning, strategies and results.

Through my coaching, planning and workshops, I provide business owners, CEOs and managers with the tools they need to accelerate profitable growth, align their teams and integrate long-term thinking into daily activities.

Some of my past accomplishments include:

  • Two complete turnarounds, significantly growing marketshare, income and cash
  • Recognized on the Inc. 500/5000 fastest growing companies list
  • Establishing several international strategic alliances
  • Launching numerous, successful new products
  • Lean Manufacturing and Continuous Improvement transformations

I’ve been a guest on numerous podcasts, been interviewed for publications and present to groups on a number of business related subjects.

My wife and I live in Los Angeles, have two grown sons and one high maintenance parrot.
