The Leadership Triangle Executive Program is an opportunity for C-level executives, and their spouses or partners, who are new to the region, or in new positions to meet and learn from experienced top executives and community leaders. By engaging in conversations that address key regional topics, each participant will leave with a better understanding of their greater responsibility to the region and their potential impact on the community and within their company culture.
Jim Goodmon, CEO and Chairman of Capitol Broadcasting Company, as well as chair emeritus of Leadership Triangle, is the host and facilitator of this class series.
“My wife, Celeste, and I found the Executive Program to be of great benefit to us and to SunTrust. Over the course of the program, we engaged in meaningful discussions about opportunities and challenges facing the Triangle. We met business and community leaders from every corner of our region and established connections and friendships that we maintained well beyond our graduation. I recommend it highly.”
