The Vistage story: 66 years of cultivating success

It started simply enough: Businessman Bob Nourse brought together several Milwaukee-area executives in 1957 to help each other solve their businesses challenges. He made sure they were from non-competing industries and kept conversations confidential. He also brought in business experts to share their insights.

The past 66 years have seen Vistage grow and evolve to serve our increasingly diverse and sophisticated member businesses. But we always stay true to Bob Nourse’s vision: To help high-integrity leaders make great decisions that benefit their companies, families and communities.

Vistage has a rich history and a strong presence in Malaysia. Founded in 1994 by successful businessman Richard CM Wong in Kuala Lumpur, Vistage Malaysia has grown into a thriving community of more than 1,200 members and over 60 Vistage Chairs. The members’ combined annual sales exceed RM90 billion and with more than 130,000 employees.

On 30 June 2023, Vistage Worldwide, Inc (USA) acquired Vistage Malaysia Sdn Bhd and it is now a fully-owned subsidiary that builds on the rapidly growing CEO peer advisory in the region.
