CEO: First Endeavors

CEO Business Visits


Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital

Dolan Dalpoas

Doland Dalpoas, CEO and President of Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital, recently spoke to the Land of Lincoln CEO class. Mr. Dalpoas provided the group with a presentation on the history and success of the hospital. He discussed the ways in which the hospital impacted Logan county and has continued to thrive throughout the years. Discussing Doland’s entrepreneurial achievements gave the students an inside look at the world of business and leadership. Through this opportunity, the students were able to gain a new knowledge of their community and the possibilities that are available to them.


Koehler Construction

Todd Koehler

On Wednesday we went on a visit to a job site of Todd Koehler. Todd Koehler is the

owner of Koehler Construction. He told us about how much his business has evolved

and the struggles he has faced. He is also a firefighter so he works unusual hours. He

talked about building up your reputation by staying true to your word. He said two

phrases that really stood out.  They were, “do what you say you're going to do” and “your

word is all you have”. We were also able to take a tour of the house he is currently

working on. It was a pleasure to meet Todd Koehler, and learn about how he operates

his business.

Get Involved in CEO

The manner in which the CEO program is funded is critical to its success and sustainability. All funds raised are used exclusively for the Land of Lincoln CEO program. To participate, a 3-year $1000 per year commitment is required. Business Partner Investors commitments of time and energy are also critical to the program's success. Contributions may be tax deductible, as our organization is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization.

When we are not touring local businesses, we need a place to host the class. During that time, the 10 CEO students and their Facilitator would meet at your site where they would also have guest speakers and guests from the community attend. Hosting requires a facility with internet access and adequately accommodates up to 15 people.

We are looking for people to share real-life stories about the concepts of running a business, from strategic thinking, product development to marketing, and cash flow management. Also, sharing your personal successes and failures are what recent classes have enjoyed the most.
