Houston, Texas - August 31, 2011 – This week, more than 300 chief executive officers and business owners from Georgia and Tennessee gathered at the Westin Buckhead Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia for Atlanta’s annual Vistage All-City Event.

“We continue to see great synergy between our firm and the entire Vistage community,” said Art Saxby. “The members are experienced business people who understand the need for strategic marketing. I personally enjoy the depth of the conversations and the thought-provoking questions from the group.”

A best-selling author and renowned consultant, McFarland’s book “The Breakthrough Company: How Everyday Companies Achieve Extraordinary Results” is based on a five-year study of more than 7,000 companies, and explodes popular myths about what it takes to drive sustained growth and profitability.
