Our Story

The Prium was founded in 2008 by Dennis Carey, Vice Chairman of Korn Ferry, in partnership with Sir George Buckley, then Chairman & CEO of 3M, and Ed Breen, then Chairman & CEO of Tyco, with the goal of creating an exclusive, private CEO Community that was built by CEOs, for CEOs.

dennis-careyDennis founded several organizations designed to advance corporate leadership performance and knowledge, including the Directors’ Institute at the Wharton School, the CEO Academy®, the Lead Director Academy, the CFO Board Academy, the CHRO Board Academy and G100.

With The Prium, Dennis wanted to create a more exclusive and discrete exchange among peers, thus membership is by invitation only for sitting Chairmen and CEOs.

Our Philosophy

With today’s ever-more complex operating environment and the increasingly intense scrutiny of corporate leadership, where can chief executives turn for wise and unbiased counsel?

The Prium believes the answer lies with those who walk in your shoes, face the same challenges, and live under the same microscope – your CEO peers.

To complement the collective wisdom of our members, we host a diverse spectrum of thought leaders to add context and depth to our roundtable sessions.


Member CEOs set and lead the robust agendas, complemented by world-class subject matter experts.


Discrete, confidential and off-the-record.


Open dialogue rather than one-way panels.


Membership capped at 50 CEOs, by invitation only.


Two half-day sessions per year, preceded by a social dinner the evening prior.
