Our Story

Seattle Executives Association was the first business networking organization in the state.

In the early 1900's, Seattle experienced tremendous growth and development. With WWI, the creation of the Port of Seattle district and much of the city's infrastructure put in place, Seattle was experiencing a boom which brought new consumers to the shores of Elliott Bay.

Seattle Executives Association - Our Story

Seattle Executives Association was established in 1917 by small group of businessmen who believed that they could increase their sales by sharing information about ships coming to port to buy goods. In addition each could refer their clients to others in the group and therefore reduce the time and resources needed for each to locate new business. So by getting together weekly to share their knowledge, each prospered!


This concept remains a strong business development approach today, nearly 100 years later. Seattle Execs members come together at weekly luncheon meetings to get to know the products and services each member provides and share information about "who is looking to buy."
