Vic Pemberton
Certified Executive Coach & CEO
WITY Solutions, The Pepi Companies

People are the key in any organization. As a lifelong business entrepreneur, Vic has acquired and grown several companies while mentoring hundreds of individuals. With thirty years of leadership experience, he has been blessed to work with great people dedicated to delivering the best products and highest level of customer satisfaction.

As CEO of The Pepi Companies, a family owned and operated business, Vic has built the market leader in the custom convenient refreshment industry. From the first day of driving a route truck for Pepsi-Cola, through setting up information systems, to leading a dynamic sales and service team, negotiating contracts with local and regional chain accounts, Vic has enjoyed the opportunity to work with people building relationships and business. For several years Vic managed multiple aspects of Pepsi-Cola Bottling Co as he worked to develop Pepi. The CEO, the late “Max” Langston gave Vic the opportunity to purchase shares in Pepi that was formed in 1989, and finally to acquire 100% of in 2001.

The reality of being both the “dad” and the “boss” created a challenge that led the kids to encourage Vic to “Be the Coach”. Now, as a certified executive coach, he is dedicating his life to helping other business owners identify growth within their own organizations. Vic looks forward to building relationships, driving excellence, and sharing his own business experiences with forward-looking leaders.
