Wanda Smith

CEO/President, Symphony Placements

I have grown as a female CEO by regularly meeting with my peers exchanging advice and expertise. It is one of the smartest ROI decisions I have ever made as a business owner.

Steve Taormino

CEO, CC&A Strategic Media

CEO Club is a tremendous resource to any executive that desires to build an organization. Over the years, the presenters have provided great educations and business advice that has helped my business. I’ve also been active in the Presidential Advisory Committee and found invaluable support and guidance from other business CEO’s. CEO Club is one of my greatest resources for running my business.

Ken Wexley

President, Wexley Consulting

I have been a member of the Baltimore CEO Club for almost 18 years. During this time, I have tried, at each meeting, to learn one thing that I could use to help grow my business. I’m happy to report that because of the quality of the speakers and conversations that I’ve had with fellow members, I have been able to make this happen.

Martin Schwartz

President, Vehicles for Change

I have been a member of the CEO Club for 5 (not sure) years now. I have found it to be one of the best networking organizations to which I have been a member.

The format of monthly lunches, with a relatively small group of CEO’s and quality guest speakers, give you the opportunity to build a relationship with your peers and the speakers typically, leave you with new information valuable in the development of your business. I would highly recommend the CEO Club to anyone interested in building their business.

Rob Weinhold

Chief Executive, Fallston Group

For more than a decade, the CEO Club of Baltimore has been an invaluable resource and has helped me spur growth, personally and professionally. The knowledge base of membership, coupled with their willingness to see those around them succeed, is unparalleled.
