Carl Arnold is a Vistage Chair, a CEO, and a business coach who offers entrepreneurial leadership consulting to CEOs, Executives, and business owners around the San Francisco Bay Area. He is an entrepreneur who has scaled a company to over $100 million before selling it. A born and bred businessman, Carl started his first venture at the age of 12 selling hot dogs and Coca-Cola at Cal Stadium football games. Both his father and grandfather were entrepreneurs working in the hotel and restaurant industries, so he grew up with the spirit of enterprise all around him, something that he carried with him throughout his career.
Carl went on to study Hotel Restaurant Management, Business Administration, and Music at the University of Denver. He even toured with a band for a year before being accepted into a leadership program at the St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco. Following the program, he was recruited to join Milepost Industries, a company focused entirely on providing hospitality services to railroad employees. Under Carl’s leadership, Milepost expanded its breadth to include three different divisions, growing to reach 100 million in annualized revenues.
