Last Wednesday, CEOlink, a member based organization that acts as a welcome committee for CEOs that have relocated to Texas, hosted one of their Relocation Spotlight Events at TopGolf, shedding light on the recent relocation of the company’s headquarters from Chicago to DFW as well as their plans for expansion in Texas, which will include a new North Texas venue in The Colony.

Past Relocation Events have put the spotlight on recent CEO transplants, including NYLO Hotel’s Michael Mueller with an event held in the lobby of South Side’s new urban, boutique hotel. The goal of each event is to help build an established network of Dallas CEOs, a space where CEOs can mingle comfortably with their peers, and a welcoming environment that goes above and beyond just ‘Here’s Dallas.’

Last week’s Relocation Event held in the Signature Room of TopGolf Dallas on Park Lane had a more laid back feel, offering attendees a catered dinner and the opportunity to play a few (competitive) rounds of TopGolf after the discussion. The evening was so laid back in fact, that after CDO Randy Starr and CEO Tom Leverton discussed TopGolf’s recent headquarters change and expansion in Texas, CEOlink founder Ed Curtis opened the floor for an open discussion.

CEOlink Welcomes CEOs to DFW and Spotlights South Side

Friday, February 15th, 2013

Imagine this: you’re a CEO who has recently relocated or expanded your business to DFW, and you don’t know a soul. Okay, maybe one soul, but that’s not enough to get you fully plugged in to the corporate scene. You have to start from the ground up, meet well-connected and established CEOs and businessmen and women who have lived there for years and hope to make some connections. That’s what Matthews Southwest CEO Jack Matthews had to do when he relocated from Canada to Dallas in March of 1994.

Then imagine this:  you’re a CEO who has recently relocated or expanded your business to DFW, and you don’t know a soul. So you join CEOlink, a group of DFW private sector leaders and influencers who welcome you into their network of like-minded people. Their mission: to work collectively with those who helped build it and those who will be a part of its ongoing legacy. Sounds a little easier, right?
