CEO Connection to Ring The NASDAQ Stock Market Closing Bell


ADVISORY, March 17, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --


CEO Connection, the only membership organization in the world focused exclusively on mid-market CEOs, will visit the NASDAQ MarketSite in Times Square.

To mark the occasion, Kenneth Beck, the Chief Executive Officer of CEO Connection, will ring the Closing Bell.

CEO Connection is highlighting the importance of the middle market and its role as a major contributor to economic growth; in the U.S., the mid-market—defined as companies with revenues between $100 million and $3 billion—employs upward of 30 million workers and collectively boasts annual revenue of $10 trillion of the $30 trillion U.S. gross receipts.

At this year's CEO Connection Mid-Market Convention, on Oct. 20, 2014, the leaders of the mid-market will gather at the Wharton School in Philadelphia to craft sustainable solutions to the problems we all face—balancing the needs of the corporate world, the public today and the society of the future.
