For Engineering CEOs Only

Take Your Company to the Next Level with CEN

You Don’t Have To Do It Alone

Benefit from the insights of other Engineering CEOs who have been down a similar path.

Running an engineering company places you in a distinct group of leaders. While many executives find value in peer interactions, there's a unique dynamic when leaders of similarly scaled engineering companies exchange insights. There is a shorthand among such leaders, comprised of shared experiences, predictable challenges and, more often than not, hard-won solutions.

CEN (a division of Chief Executive magazine's parent company) established this network to offer leaders of engineering companies access to unbiased advice, fresh ideas, and support on pressing strategic, organizational, board, and personal leadership challenges.

It's noteworthy that CEN members average 30% higher profit margins and more than 2x the growth rate of their industry peers. With CEN, you'll refine your strategic, operational, and leadership techniques, ensuring your priorities are aligned for maximum impact.

This network could be a powerful resource for you. Please let us know if you're interested in learning more by submitting the short form on this page.

Proven ROI: Don’t Take Our Word for It

“When another CEO was discussing his bank line of credit, I discovered that I was paying 75 basis points more than the lowest rates (3/4 of 1% per year). The other CEOs gave me the names of their bankers who lend to our sector and offered to make introductions. When I went back to my bank and said I was going to be leaving and why — my local bank cut my interest rate by a whole point to retain my business. This was worth over $300,000 per year — over $2 million during the life of the loan.”
