Welcome To Executive Life

martin-hess-400x400Executive Life Magazine is more than just another business publication; it is a personal glimpse into the lives of your fellow executives, professionals, and business owners from all across the metro area. It is a true honor and privilege to have the opportunity to publish Executive Life and, in the process, serve you and your business.

What sets Executive Life apart? It was created by the business community for the business community. We don’t want to just scratch the surface of executive’s lives, we want to see behind the curtain: where they live, where they work, where they play, what motivates them; what they aspire to. You can also anticipate seeing articles about local businesses and their owners, as well as golf, tennis, food and wine articles – and much more.

I am also grateful to the Executive Life Leadership Team for all of the creative thinking and effort they have invested behind the scenes to pull this off. Michael Kravets, Executive Editor, and Phyllis Cronbaugh, Content Director have worked closely together to provide amazing content and articles. Jim Grant, Technology Director, has created an incredible digital platform to showcase Executive Life, and Rebecca Booth, Creative Director, has added her creative expertise and skills. Of course to make this a truly digital publication Tim Anderson, Video Director, and one of the leading videographers in the Midwest, has also contributed his talent to the magazine.

And last, but definitely not least, a special thanks to Tina Cochran, V.P. of Operations for all of her coordination on behalf of the American Club Association and for serving as liaison to the magazine. Together, the Executive Life Leadership Team is creating the type of publication that will make you never want to miss a single issue.

Because Executive Life is a magazine by and for the business community, we want to encourage your feedback and suggestions. What type of content and articles do you want to see? What ideas do you have that you think should be included? From the very first issue we want to strive to improve this publication issue throughout the year. We look forward to serving you and your business. Thank you for subscribing!
