We want to share just a few words here about why we think our history is so important for people to understand who we are. This history of Vector Group, Inc. goes back to the 1960's with some of the individual and collective work its founding principals did. Vector Group, Inc.has had a handful of company names but the work and new thinking goes on.
In our earliest days to now, the affililiations and relationships Vector Group founding partners have or had reads like a "Who's Who" in organizational and human performance. Notables in the field including Tom Gilbert, Joe Harless, Geary Rummler, Bob Mager, W. Warner Burke, George Litwin, Stephanie Jackson, Kathleen Whiteside, Danny Langdon, William Daniels, Roger Kaufman, Roger Addison and many others directly shaped the work we do with organizations.
Our history is deep seated in adapting the work we do with continually changing client needs. The approaches to performance within organizations are not static; they are ever-evolving. The named individuals above made their mark in establishing new thinking, new models, new approaches then and now. Most pioneered new ways of doing things in the performance arena and laid the foundation for what we do today.
We've lost some of our colleagues over time but it's the work that moves forward. Even in later life, there is still a drive for new thinking, shared observations, healthy contention, mutual conclusions and collaboration. The "Tuscon 7" was formed a few years back when a select group of profound thinkers banded together to compare notes and basically rail and rebel against any constraining powers that be.
Herein lies a critical difference between Vector Group, Inc. and the larger consulting firms. Our work is deeply rooted in the science of what we've learned and what we do. The science leads us to the art of how we do it and both the art and the science are in our DNA. Our DNA will pass on to the next generation. Read about our chronology and milestones
