In the last year, BNI's 310,000+ Members generated well over $22 billion USD in revenue  from their BNI Membership through over 14 million valuable new client referrals. Year-after-year, BNI is consistently creating new records in terms of revenue and referrals for BNI Members and it is opening in new countries to add to the 77 countries in which it currently operates. It is also significantly bolstering its team with top talent throughout its 17 corporate offices worldwide.  BNI now sits at its largest membership ever after more than 38 years of operation  and it is poised to achieve a 39th consecutive year of growth later this year.

With its accelerating growth, now is the ideal time to further augment the team. Mr.  Weihmiller plans to include the whole organization in the process of recruiting BNI's next CEO, and he is gathering input from BNI Members, Franchisees, and  employees to identify the key success traits  in BNI's next CEO. This new CEO will lead BNI as well as its affiliates CorporateConnections ® and Scion Social.

Graham Weihmiller, who has served as BNI's CEO since 2014 will continue to be  a strong advocate for BNI as he steps into the Executive Chairman role. In this role, Weihmiller will focus more  time on big-picture strategic opportunities for BNI, mentorship, public speaking, and writing.

BNI's Founder and Chief Visionary Officer, Dr. Ivan Misner said of the change, "Since 2014, Graham and I have worked very closely together to support BNI Members and Directors worldwide. And we will continue to do so in this next phase as well. By moving to the Executive Chair role, he will be able to focus on the big, strategic opportunities for BNI, while also getting some more time for writing and time at home with family, which I know is important to him. I'm supportive of this change, and excited about the fresh energy and ideas a new CEO will bring to support BNI's next phase of growth and success. My role isn't changing. And I've never been more bullish on BNI."

"BNI is an incredible organization and I'm excited to step-up to Executive Chairman so I can focus on big, strategic opportunities for BNI. I'm so humbled and pleased with the work we have done together in the last ten years. It has been a rich life experience, and I'm so incredibly grateful to the leaders in  BNI who make a tangible impact in individual lives every day," says Weihmiller. "The organization is well-positioned for the future; now is the ideal time to launch an exciting and inclusive process to identify BNI's next CEO. They'll bring fresh energy, ideas, and experiences to  BNI that will catapult BNI to an entirely new level. And I look forward to working with them closely. With a continued focus on  BNI's Core Values, there is no limit to what BNI can accomplish in a world that needs BNI more than ever before."
