ATLANTA, Oct. 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- World 50 and G100, the world's leading peer-to-peer platforms for business leaders, have come together to form the most comprehensive peer learning, development and networking community for the world's top performing companies and their leaders.
The partnership creates the most influential membership-based organization where CEOs, boards, and senior executives from globally respected organizations build relationships, exchange practical advice and gain insight on the pressing matters facing business leaders now as they drive their companies into the future. The merger was finalized on September 22, 2020.
World 50 and G100 will remain a private organization with the sole mission of accelerating the success of members and their organizations. For the immediate term, membership status and benefits in the respective organizations will be unchanged, yet enhanced and enriched by the broader capabilities available to the combined World 50 and G100 organization. For example, G100 members will gain access to World 50's Inclusion and Diversity Impact platform, a long-term, cross-organization initiative intended to accelerate progress on one of the most pressing issues of our time. This platform was created in response to overwhelming demand among World 50 members for a forum dedicated to direct, open conversations about accelerating the real and immediate impact private enterprise can have on creating a diverse, inclusive society with true equality of opportunity. G100 Chairman Scott Miller will now be Chairman of the combined organization, Dave Niles will continue as President of G100, and the flagship G100 CEO group remains under the leadership of Daniel Casse. World 50 CEO, David Wilkie, is now CEO of the combined organization.
"The leadership imperative has never been more profound. If leadership will differentiate success more than ever before, World 50's and G100's united mission of helping leaders stay ahead is now more relevant than ever," shared Wilkie. "With today's uncertainty and the stakes our members face in these unprecedented times, there is no better time than now to bring these two great organizations together in service of our respective members."
"We are excited about joining forces with World 50, a world-class company we have long admired," said Scott Miller. "The opportunity will further enhance both companies' ability to deliver value to members, accelerate their success and connect them to the most valuable networks for CEOs, boards, the C-suite and beyond."
Last year, World 50 also acquired London-based Procurement Leaders, the world's largest and most valuable procurement network and intelligence platform. The goal is that each company will provide a comprehensive and differentiated suite of services aligned to supporting executives leading and transforming modern enterprises.
