CEO Admin to Benefit from Peer-to-Peer Network Platform

Administrative Center of Excellence (ACE) – Launch Sacramento and Silicon Valley

SACRAMENTO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Administrative Center of Excellence (ACE) announced today the launch of Sacramento based platform providing CEO, CFO, CHRO, CMO, CIO/CTO Assistants with a unique ability to share and compare best practices with peers at their level in similar organizations. Founded by Joanne Linden, CPS, CEAP and President/Founder of AdminUniverse™ in Silicon Valley in 2013, the focus of this organization is aimed at Administrative teams; giving them the ability to discuss challenges of supporting high-powered CEO/C-suite teams; give fresh ideas on how to take their EA partnership to the next level; and develop CEO/C-suite/Assistant teams to be as dynamic as possible while enhancing the productivity of their executives.

“It is my goal to enable Administrative Leaders to better understand the global perspective on what it takes to be the crusader supporting your organization’s admin community; build on what you have; and deliver programs that inspire participation,” said Joanne Linden. “Just as important is delivering a platform in which Admin’s can share ideas with peers at their level which never before was available.”

“For me, as then Chief Executive Assistant to the CEO/Founder of Synopsys Inc, a multi-billion-dollar global organization, I always felt there wasn’t a place where I could meet with peers and discuss the challenges I faced daily, especially at this level of both my company and high-powered executive. I formed ACE to address this unique need and meet other Administrative Professionals who are leaders in their organizations. The results were and are amazing, and members offer a rich peer-to-peer network of knowledge and experience,” stated Joanne Linden.

Membership, in both Sacramento and Silicon Valley areas, include quarterly 3-hour meetings, and a once a year, one-day ACE Summit in which there will be multiple speakers and all ACE groups will be invited to attend. In addition, CEO/EA teams, ACE groups will be formed by discipline such as for CFO assistants, CHRO assistants, CMO assistants, CIO/CTO assistants, etc.

ACE announces its first annual summit, Saturday, November 10, 2018. Titled “Unleashing the Leader Within You” the day long program features 3 top industry leaders: Michelle Galloway (Topic: Becoming More Effective in Multi-generational Environments); AmyK Hutchens (Topic: Ignite Brilliance in Your Leadership) and Ingrid Gudenas (Topic: Causative Communications). The cost of this summit is included with ACE membership. (SOLD OUT)
