Executives Network is the evolution of an idea born of necessity that has proven itself not only a viable business model, but as an important resource for executives in today’s challenging job market.
The company was formed in 2002 as Arizona Executives, a grassroots meeting of Director, VP and C-level executives on a bi-weekly basis to discuss and explore the job market. The goal was to add value to the job-search process through the leveraging of individual contacts and advice.
One of the initial participants, Molly Wendell, was herself in the process of looking for a new position. It was her personal sense of excitement and potential arising from this group dynamic that ultimately became the foundation of growing Arizona Executives into a company under her leadership. She continues today as the CEO of Executives Network, an expansion of the original Arizona Executives model onto the national stage.
Word of mouth has gradually expanded membership to thousands with the addition of a second location in San Francisco in early 2008. The organization today is expanding into additional cities throughout the country.
The business model continues to evolve. Efforts are underway to expand the nature and application of the system to provide greater value to our members - enhancing the nature and scope of each member’s vision and the development of proactive strategies for their career.
Executives Network is the only viable peer-networking resource available to executives in the job market today.
"Executives Network was extremely valuable in helping me expand my network in Arizona. It also gave me an opportunity to help others in their searches. During the stress of a job search, the ability to help others really makes a difference in a job searcher's personal outlook." - Frank, COO
