Lisa Ventriss Led Organization for 19 years 

 Today, the Vermont Business Roundtable announced that Lisa Ventriss, President since 2002, will retire at the end of the year.

“It has been one of my greatest professional privileges to serve as President of the Roundtable and work together with such a distinguished and respected group of business and non-profit leaders from across the state and region,” Ventriss said. “After almost two decades as president, and at the beginning of a new decade, it is now time for the Roundtable to bring in the next generation of leader. “

We applaud her commitment to Vermont and her amazing track record of leadership.  We are grateful for Lisa’s selfless  deferral of her retirement for a year in order to guide the organization and provide tremendous programming during this challenging pandemic year.”
