Andrew Elder: President & CEO, The Elder Group, LLC
For 20 years Mr. Elder has helped countless companies and their CEO’s succeed. “Developing the Elder Group was clearly a “niche” business idea”.

Throughout his travels across the country, Andy heard the same story over and over again. “All my CEO colleagues and friends were telling me they were too busy running their companies, it kept them from being in the new business development arenas which they all missed”. It’s how most of them started their businesses”. “So, I thought, why not put a company together that introduces CEO’s to other CEO’s where there is a natural fit”?

Henceforth, the Elder Group was born. Today The Elder Group has company access to many hundreds of CEO’s from all around the globe. Totaling in the hundreds of billions of dollars in company earnings. Andy subscribes to two simple rules”. “Keep it simple” and The Elder Group never works with people they don’t care for”! What’s the point?


Greetings to all our Colleagues, Friends and Clients and our Teleconference guests:

I am pleased to announce that Dr. Frank Salvatore will be speaking on April 27th at 4:00 PM EST regarding Mind, Body, Spirit and Soul, and Holistic Faith-Based Medicine.

Frank is a board-certified urologist and someone who has been studying the above topics for over twenty years. He is a magnificent platform that I think can enhance everyone’s immune system, their spirituality and their health moving forward in this incredibly challenging time. We look forward to presenting these topics and encourage all of you to listen in.

My very best to you, never give up, and always remember, have courage in your faith.

All the best, Andy Elder, President & CEO
