Clark Vitulli, CEO of Music City Chief Executives

Music City Chief Executives founder and CEO Clark Vitulli is one of Nashville’s most sought-after private business consultants because he understands what others don’t: that the view from the top is often the loneliest, and finding unbiased, confidential advice without personal agendas can be tough. Great leaders need a sounding board, input from trusted peers, and guidance from outside the walls of their company in order to truly thrive.

Clark has worn many leadership hats through decades of serving as a Senior Executive in public and private multi-billion dollar international companies and start-ups. His deep executive experience gives him an intimate understanding of senior leadership, business ownership, and the unique challenges and rewards of life in the C-Suite. He also knows the value of mentorship, having worked with (and learned from) business greats, including household names like Lee Iacocca and Roger Penske. He founded Music City Chief Executives to bring specialized, qualified thought leadership and actionable guidance to Nashville’s business executive community. Since opening its doors in 2012, the company has grown to include clients across Tennessee and beyond.

Known as the “CEO Whisperer,” Clark is a Vistage Chair for CEO and KEY Executive Advisory Boards, currently serving as leader, facilitator, trusted advisor, coach, and mentor for three private CEO and KEY Executive Advisory Groups in Nashville. Clark is also launching a new Vistage Emerging Leader Program for Millennials and young professionals. In addition, he provides 1:1 coaching, Senior Leadership Training, and specialized consulting services to some of the area’s most visible leaders.

“The high point of my career was working for Clark at America’s PowerSports, which he founded from a concept to 17 Powersports Dealerships nation-wide. With his leadership, along with the training and tools he provided to his General Managers, I was able to lead one of his top-performing dealerships year after year. His leadership style allowed me to accomplish more than I could have ever done on my own!”

“Clark is by far one of the best business mentors I have ever met.  He’s been there, done that and knows exactly what you need to learn.  The thing is, he doesn’t always tell you that, but rather, leads you down the path of discovery for yourself, so you will own it.”

“Clark and Vistage has helped me tremendously since I joined in 2016. With Vistage, I get my own personal Board of Directors to keep “the main thing the main thing”. Additionally, my one-on-one session with Clark provides an opportunity to have an independent voice challenge, encourage, and advise me on a monthly basis. It’s something I look forward to every month or if I need a quick dose of coaching medicine.”

Kelly McCreight
