Today, the modern CEO is more than just a figurehead. Visionary leaders like Apple’s former CEO, Steve Jobs, regularly rise to celebrity status as their philosophy not only impacts their business and it’s employees, but the lives of everyone that business touches. And in the addiction treatment industry, these leaders often determine if a company will put profits or people first – a decision that can quite literally save lives.
When addiction takes hold of someone’s life, it can feel overwhelming and hopeless. However, Serenna Maclachlan, the CEO of SLO Recovery Centre (SLO), is determined to be a guiding light for those seeking help.
