Business peers uncovering blind spots for growth.

I’m Kirk McMillan

With a purpose and passion for elevating leaders to grow and prosper, I proudly serve as a Vistage Chair to CEO's, Presidents, Business Owners, and Executives who want to achieve exponential growth.  


I became CEO of family business at 26 years old, growing a $75M family business from $2 million.  My purpose is elevating leaders and enriching the journey. 


One of the most important gifts to give a leader is the ability to understand what they are capable of. That is what’s so motivating and energizing about peer-to-peer space.


As a Vistage Chair, I am a CEO sherpa guiding the members of my groups through executive coaching and leadership development in Charleston, South Carolina. We meet monthly in an environment safe enough to bring up any opportunity or challenge, no matter the difficulty.


The only agenda is to help each other lead at higher levels, make better decisions, and live better lives. We go deep, so members can go high.

Here to Help You Succeed

As a Vistage Executive Coach, I work with executives across a wide spectrum of backgrounds and industries. Aside from often feeling lonely at the top, the one thing all my members have in common is a passionate desire to become better – better leaders, better decision-makers, better role models. Vistage helps achieve this by not only providing world-class executive coaching, but also the most robust and comprehensive leadership development programs on the market.


If you’ve been seeking a reliable and trusted source for honest, agenda-free guidance to help you navigate uncertainty and achieve better results, Vistage just might be what you’ve been looking for.

"Vistage has enhanced my understanding of key business principles related to running and managing an enterprise. More importantly, it has enabled me to make new friends in the business community that I respect and trust."
