BNI® Founder and Chairman

In terms of skills and backgrounds, Executive Directors come from all walks of life.

Dr. Ivan Misner, BNI® Founder and Chairman, has seen people with many different strengths make for outstanding franchisee Executive Directors.

“I’ve seen analytical people run very successful regions because they surrounded themselves with very outgoing people; I’ve seen promoters and go-getters who are really good because they surround themselves with analytical people. Successful franchisees have confidence in their ability and know their style and they know how to form a winning team.”
