EXECUTIVE LEADERS

The Leadership Triangle Executive Program is an opportunity for C-level executives to meet and learn from other top executives as well as community leaders. Each cohort is designed for executives who are new to the region or new to their role. By engaging in conversations that address key regional issues, each participant leaves with a better understanding of their greater responsibility to the Triangle region as well as with new connections to other leaders in comparable positions. 

Jim Goodmon, CEO and Chairman of Capitol Broadcasting Company, as well as Chair Emeritus of Leadership Triangle, is the host of this class series. The program is facilitated by the Leadership Triangle team. Guest speakers represent the private, public and nonprofit sectors.

We will be offering the Executive Program in late 2024. Participation in the Executive Program is by invitation only. 

“I found the Executive Program to be of great benefit to me 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 highly recommend it.”
