Parent Companies

A unique aspect of Plato is the participation of large local parent companies that offer Plato members access to their full range of management expertise. Each participating parent company releases its executives on a part-time basis to serve as Plato Group Leaders, providing guidance and support to owner managers.

Parent Companies benefit from new linkages to local supply sources for products and services, as well as the opportunity to demonstrate a commitment to the economic development of the local region.
