Vistage recognizes Jaime Gmach with a 2022 Lifetime Achievement Award

Jaime Gmach has been named the recipient of a 2022 Lifetime Achievement Award by Vistage, the world’s largest CEO coaching and peer advisory organization for small and midsize businesses. The Lifetime Achievement Award honors long-standing members who see no finish line in their pursuit of world class. With a track record of bold decisions benefiting company, community and beyond, these members are a beacon to Vistage peers even as they achieve personal greatness.

Jaime Gmach is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Evolving Solutions, a leading technology solution provider focused on helping enterprise clients modernize and automate their mission-critical infrastructure to support digital transformation. He also serves as CEO of Keyva, which he founded in 2018.  Keyva is a services organization focused on cloud automation, orchestration, and DevOps, and was launched to help clients take advantage of innovation and disruptions driven by cloud technologies.

Both organizations thrive due to the commitment to their core values of Do the Right Thing, Be a Team Player, and Be Humbly Confident, highlighted by being named a Top Workplace in Minnesota in 2022. One of Jaime’s true passions in life is giving back to the communities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. He has led multiple Evolving Solutions and Keyva philanthropic initiatives that provide technology, financial, and labor support to charitable organizations throughout the region.

“I am honored and humbled to receive this prestigious award because of the transformational effect of my involvement with Vistage, said Gmach.  “It supported me in building strong companies with a foundation of strong values, employee-first cultures and the focus of delivering the best outcomes to our clients.”

“Jaime was selected from over 300 local Vistage members as one who embodies our Vistage values of Growth, Challenge, and Commitment,” said Brian Davis, Vistage Master Chair.  “Not only has he built two highly successful and thriving businesses, but he has also had a huge impact on his community and his fellow Vistage group members. In the last 10 years I have seen tremendous growth in him professionally, personally, and spiritually, and he serves as a model of what effective leadership looks like for all of us. I feel blessed to have him in our group!”
