Founded in 1971, the Business Executive Council (formally known as The Corporate Finance Council) has a long history of providing a forum where San Diego business leaders can make helpful connections and develop lasting relationships.  Unique to San Diego, we strive to create a comfortable and fun environment where members can share experiences and perspective with each other.

The Business Executive Council hosts ten dinner meetings annually along with other special events, including member receptions and company tours.  Additionally, with our Management Apprentice Program or MAP for short, members have the opportunity to mentor undergraduate students from the community’s leading universities.

Our membership is comprised of business executives from a wide range of industries and the trusted advisers who work with those executives.  Our adviser members include professionals from accounting, legal, banking, insurance, recruiting, and real estate firms.
