A Vistage Member Showcase Story
Jay Steinfeld opened a “Mom & Pop” drapery business 25 years ago and transformed it into the world’s No. 1 online window coverings store, Blinds.com. From Vistage and his peer group, Jay learned how to hire, coach, and set the right expectations for his employees. He credits Vistage for making him a more effective employer. Today Blinds.com has 131 employees with only a 3 percent turnover.
Jay did not know what being a CEO was when he first started out. Thanks to his Vistage peer group he realized that as a CEO, “You’re not working in the business; you’re working on the business.”
