Chief Operating Officers, Vice Presidents of Operations, General Managers and other senior operating executives in the manufacturing, distribution and software/technology industries face a multitude of challenges. In addition to keeping on top of the latest quality, efficiency and safety techniques affecting company operations, today’s top-performing senior operations executives are the strategic partners to their CEOs and company boards of directors.

Senior Executive Networks provides an experienced network and tools for Operations executives to excel, think more strategically and add significant value to their company operations. We place operating executives into groups with peers in their industry (who are not direct competitors) who have the same job responsibilities and comparable levels of complexity.

Each peer group is professionally facilitated which allows members to exchange expertise, benchmark operational metrics and discuss current and future industry trends.
