As part of the relationship, Axial and Vistage will partner on educational webinars for their members this fall, and Axial will participate as a Gold Sponsor for upcoming Vistage Executive Summits. Their first collaboration will be a webinar taking place on September 12, titled: What's the "Right" Price for Your Business? Understanding and Bridging the Valuation Gap

Representing 18,000 small and mid-sized businesses across the globe, Vistage is an ideal partner for Axial as it aims to extend its reach to include the communities that private company executives trust and turn to for guidance and advice about their businesses.

Both organizations share the common objective of empowering leaders at private companies with the advice and relationships they need to successfully grow and run their businesses.

"We are thrilled to partner with Vistage and leverage their premiere brand. They've built an outstanding and vital service for private company executives. We look forward to working closely with them to offer educational content and valuable tools that help their members find growth opportunities, access capital, or plan their exit," said Sam Jacobs, Senior Vice President of Sales and Business Development for Axial.

As the leading platform for private company executives exploring strategic options for their business, Axial's network of 19,500 transaction professionals and CEOs represents a unique resource for Vistage members seeking the information and relationships that can help them grow, finance, or sell their business.

"Our partnership with Axial gives our members access to an unparalleled network of advisors and providers of capital. We know that many of our peer advisory groups will often process how to maximize a member's exit from their business. The expertise that Axial offers will ensure that our members do just that – capitalize on the hard work and equity they have developed over the years," said Kathleen Delaney, Chief Marketing Officer for Vistage.
