Bio
While running a manufacturing company, Jim Muehlhausen joined a CEO peer group in 1994. His positive experience with that group inspired him to create CEO Focus in 2001, and later in 2007 to begin franchising the concept. Each CEO Focus location offers membership in a peer consulting group of 8 to 14 company presidents and CEOs who meet once a month to discuss business issues.
