TAB North Tampa


Gary Viljeon

TAB Business Owner

TAB North Tampa

I am the CEO of The Alternative Board (“TAB”) – North Tampa. I have over 30 years of business experience and in Tampa, I have been the CEO of three businesses, Pasco Beverages Corporation (“Pasco”), Vitality Foodservice, Inc. (“Vitality”) and the North American Division of Nestle’s foodservice beverage business. I was also a director on the Boards for both Pasco and Vitality. I have lived in Tampa since October 1999.

As the CEO, I built and empowered teams to lead, develop and implement business strategies within the framework of a clear vision, sound values, and a positive working environment. My experience incorporates market positioning, strategic partnering, new product introductions, routes to market, solutions selling, business systems implementations and a relentless focus on improving effectiveness. I have an excellent track record.

I was also the CFO of a much smaller rapidly growing company where I worked closely with the CEO to develop and build the infrastructure to support double-digit growth. We grew both organically and through acquisitions and successfully developed and executed an exit strategy for the Company’s owners. I specialize in offering CFO consulting services.

I have a Bachelor of Commerce (1977), a post-graduate Honors degree majoring in Business Administration and Finance (1978) and a Diploma in Accountancy (1978) all from the University of Natal (now Kwa Zulu) in South Africa. I qualified as a Chartered Accountant in South Africa (license now expired) and I am licensed (inactive) CPA in California.

Member Success

I have been a member of The Alternative Board for 10 years. My board knows me, holds me accountable and gives practical real world advice. My private coaching sessions are amazing.

There are numerous benefits to joining TAB. Certainly having a great coach is a huge asset. First, having the opportunity to vet business opportunities, strategies and plans is a great help. Last, it is very gratifying to help fellow board members work through their issues as well.

We have an excellent group of professional business owners. I learn something from them each month. Hearing and seeing what they are doing in their business is motivational for me. And they are not "yes" people. They tell me when I should be doing something differently.
