Kokomo CEO News 1.12.18


Wed 24th 1:00-4:30

We've been working feverishly on Summit details since we got back from break! Everyone has been pulling hard and doing their share, including selling tickets. Do you have YOUR ticket yet? And who are you bringing with you? They'll need a ticket too!

We had a generous patron purchase 10 student tickets and asked us to give them away. We called The Crossing and they gladly took them all! That's a beautiful picture of how generous our community is! We won't let money keep anyone from attending who wants to go. If you know of someone who needs financial assistance simply contact one of us or our facilitator, Morgan Young, 765-461-8641.

Purchase tickets here.

Our CEO Summit website.

We'd appreciate your help sharing the Summit within your circle of influence!

Zach Watterson Returns

2015 Kokomo CEO alumni

It's hard to put into words the impact that a former CEO like Zach has on our current team. We hear about success every week, but not from someone who sat in one of our chairs. He's recently added custom promotional products to his menu at and he's looking into the possibiliy of starting another business venture in New York, where he expects to be for several more years.

Mark & Tony Jansen

Jansen Tax Service & Asphault Sealing

It was great to hear from the man who started it all 49 years ago (Tony or "T-Love") and his son, Mark, who has expanded it into a household name in Kokomo. There was plenty of wise sage life lessons from Tony and a few tears and a lot of laughs from two men who truly love and appreciate each other. It's easy to see that the "secret sauce" of their businesses is an authentic love and respect for the people they serve. (Mark's daughter, Brooke, was part of our 2017 CEO team.)

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
