CEO Nexus and GrowFL Announce Strategic Alliance

ORLANDO, Fla. (Jan. 30, 2024) — CEO Nexus and GrowFL are pleased to announce they have formalized the longstanding working relationship the two have operated under since GrowFL’s inception.

This strategic alliance was forged by the collaboration of Jennifer Taylor (GrowFL CEO and President), Pete Previte (Chair of GrowFL’s Advisory Board) and Steve Quello (Founder and President of CEO Nexus).

Taylor noted that there has always been a natural connection between the two organizations.

“We’re excited to formalize this community partnership,” said Taylor. “Like GrowFL, CEO Nexus provides peer learning resources to owners of growth-oriented, second-stage companies. Specifically, CEO Nexus provides the PeerSpectives® CEO roundtable program, developed by the Edward Lowe Foundation, which complements GrowFL’s other lines of service.”

Quello said, “In the spirit of this alliance, CEO Nexus will co-sponsor video production for the 13th Annual GrowFL Florida Companies to Watch event. Through this sponsorship with GrowFL, we are better able to recognize and celebrate CEOs where they are on their Ownership Journey and offer all recipients the opportunity to experience the power of peer learning.”
