TEC Twitter Timeline

A Welcome Message

The year was 1957 when TEC came to life in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Founded by Bob Nourse, the concept was simple. Put together a group of non-competing chief executives in a facilitated meeting environment where they could share “best-in-class” business ideas.

A Clearer Vision for Executives

TEC is a professional development group for CEOs, presidents and business owners. TEC creates a confidential environment for senior-level executives where members have no vested interest beyond helping each other succeed.

TEC Update

Published bi-monthly, The TEC Update includes highlights of points made by select TEC speakers, commentary on germane regional business issues, and notes on member achievement and new member additions. There is no charge for this publication.
