Les Deck, Entrepreneur
Les Deck is an accomplished executive coach. His work with a full variety of C-level executives has helped his clients to identify, therefore eliminate barriers to growth.
Les is a strong advocate for peer groups. For more than sixteen years he chaired Vistage CEO groups in Florida. He also trained other Chairs for several years and served as a best practice Chair group facilitator. He volunteered as a breakout group presenter at several Chair World conferences.

He believes Vistage offers an immense advantage for business decision-makers who join.
