CEO Business Visits

CEO Guest Speakers


Dr Mark Canada

IU Kokomo
Dr. Canada gave us an inspirational presentation preparing us to research at the college level. This is clearly a passion of his and he's just released a book on the subject.

Lindsay Pyle

Posh Salon & Day Spa
Owner and stylist, Lindsay Pyle, gave us an amazing presentation from her humble beginnings to now running one of the most succesful salons in the area! It was interesting to hear the systems she has in place to help her stylists advance and become successful.

Kokomo CEO Annual Meeting

Bel Air Events
Ginger Monroe MC'd us through a great year-in-review. Ethan Campbell received the annual Mike Stegall CEO Scholarship as well as spoke about his year in CEO as did Sarah Hutchison. We are proud to announce we become 3-year CEO investors with $3,000 from our CEO Summit profit. Thank you to all of our investors, mentors, CEO Board, school administrators and the business community for making this year a huge success!

Inventrek Technology Park

Mike McCool
After $3.4 M in damages, nearly 1,500 gallons of paint and 56,000 sq ft of wall covering, Inventrek is back from last Aug's tornado! The facility has never looked better--big thanks to Mike McCool for showing off their fresh renovations.

Carly Eads

Western High

My interests are photography, drawing and painting, entrepreneurship, and church. I plan to attend Indiana University of Kokomo to major in Business. While I am in school, I plan on further developing my photography skills. For my CEO class business, I will continue with my photography business and hope to grow as an entrepreneur. The CEO program has helped me broaden my knowledge and drive me one step closer to owning a successful business. Becoming a member of the CEO program has and will continue to increase my knowledge of entrepreneurship, create more opportunities and help close the gap on becoming a successful businesswoman. I couldn't be more thankful for such an amazing opportunity.


Trevor Emerick

Kokomo High

I plan to attend Indiana University Kokomo to major in Finance and Accounting with a minor in Economics. For my personal business, I plan to develop a tennis racquet with a grip that would aid an individual in having the right grip for the shot they are hitting. I have learned so much throughout CEO, but the most important thing that this class has taught me is to not be afraid to approach people and converse with them. There are so many things that I appreciate about CEO it is hard to choose just one, but I would have to say what I appreciate most about this class is the relationships that I have developed with Morgan Young and Dana Davis, our facilitator and board chair, as well as people in the business community.

Get Involved in CEO

The manner in which the CEO program is funded is critical to its success and sustainability. All funds raised are used exclusively for the Kokomo CEO program. To participate, a 3-year $1000 per year commitment is required. Business Partner Investors commitments of time and energy are also critical to the program's success. Contributions may be tax deductible, as our organization is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization.

When we are not touring local businesses, we need a place to host the class. During that time, the 15 CEO students and their Facilitator would meet at your site where they would also have guest speakers and guests from the community attend. Hosting requires a facility with internet access and adequately accommodates up to 20 people.

We are looking for people to share real-life stories about the concepts of running a business, from strategic thinking, product development to marketing, and cash flow management. Also, sharing your personal successes and failures are what recent classes have enjoyed the most.


If you are interested in participating in any of the above programs, use our contact form to send us a message
