C12 Welcomes Local Business Leader, Jeff Burkett, as New C12 Chair

Jeff Burkett

I see strong businesses as critical to a healthy local community. I know first-hand the transformational advantages that C12 members receive.

The C12 Group, America’s leading Christian CEO and Business Owner roundtable organization, is growing again with the addition of Jeff Burkett to the C12 of the Piedmont Triad practice. Burkett joins Steve Andrews, Chair since 2003, to grow the group into High Point and the surrounding area.

“Jeff and I were members of the initial C12 Group in the Triad; I have a tremendous respect for his business acumen and his heart for the Lord. I am thrilled that he’ll be joining me as Chair. Jeff will be instrumental in expanding our practice from three C12 Groups to six. He is an exceptional servant leader with the ability to impact lives as much as the bottom line. He has successfully accomplished both and is well qualified to assist others in that journey,” said Steve Andrews, C12 Chair.

Burkett will host an introductory event for Christian CEOs and business owners on Thursday, April 16, 2015 at the String & Splinter in High Point. Those interested in attending may contact Burkett at 336.707.5701 or by email at Jeff.Burkett(at)C12Group(dot)com. Planning for a May event is underway.

Burkett is well known in the Piedmont Triad as the former leader of Advanced Direct, a regional and national direct marketing solutions provider, which he founded in 1989. His exemplary leadership led Advanced Direct to be ranked among Entrepreneur Magazine’s Hot 500 fastest growth companies in 2007 and among the Triad Business Journal’s Fast 50 Growth Companies in 2007, 2008, and 2009. Burkett began his career in Greensboro NC, as a CPA with Peat Marwick Mitchell and later joined WFMY-TV before launching Advanced Direct. Originally from Somerset, PA, he is an honors graduate of Virginia Tech.

“I am extremely excited to become a C12 Chair in the Piedmont Triad market, working to bring key leaders the strategy and tools to grow their companies. I see strong businesses as critical to a healthy local community. I know first-hand the transformational advantages that C12 members receive. My goal is to identify the right business owners and CEO’s in the Piedmont to create three more roundtable groups of 12 members, with the initial focus on the greater High Point area,” said Burkett.
