Chrissi Rhea, president and CEO of Mortgage Investors Group (MIG), has been selected to be a member of the Chief Executive peer advisory board in Knoxville by Vistage Worldwide, Inc. She joins over 200 senior executives, business owners, and CEOs across the state of Tennessee who are Vistage members. An Oak Ridge native, Chrissi began her career as a loan officer in the early 1980s. She met co-founder Chuck Tonkin early in her career and the two worked for the same mortgage lender until deciding to establish MIG in 1989.

Board Chair Kurt Greene said, “CEOs and presidents are in the business of making decisions, and Chrissi leads a growing, successful business. When seats on our board open up, we look for leaders like Chrissi, with values, skills, experiences, and markets that complement our membership. We place a real premium on cognitive diversity to bring new perspectives to the table.” Kurt is Chair of the two Vistage advisory boards in town.

Vistage members meet monthly with peers from local non-competing businesses to help one another improve themselves and their companies. Membership is by invitation only and requires a nomination and a selection process.
