Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) March 18, 2014
With continually rapid expansion in the United States and Master Franchise Owners jumping on board around the world, The Growth Coach has brought on seasoned operations executive David Lopez to help steer the ship as the company’s new Director of Operations.
The Growth Coach, the #1 business and sales coaching franchise in the country for 2013 according to Entrepreneur Magazine, is dedicated to helping business leaders, small business owners, sales people, self-employed professionals and others find success at work and balance in life through the Strategic Mindset Process among other tools.
“We are on the cusp of being an industry-defining brand and we needed to have the right team and support in place for that to happen. It took us more than a year to find the right person and that person is David. He was a perfect fit for us both from an experience standpoint and from an emotional and leadership standpoint. Everyone who joins our team has a personal vendetta against the way owning or leading a business can consume your life and David is no exception,” Growth Coach President Nathan Owens said.
Lopez, who started his new role in the end of February, left a position as the right-hand-man to a national restaurant chain to join The Growth Coach. He brings 25 years of business experience and six years of service in the U.S. Army’s elite light infantry unit to the team.
“I was thrilled to accept the position. Being part of The Growth Coach is about more than taking a job, it’s about making a real difference on a larger, international level one community, one business, at a time. I’m passionate about that mission and I know that when you can improve the businesses in a community, you really help that community grow. I wanted to be part of the positive impact The Growth Coach makes every day. It’s extremely rewarding,” Lopez said.
The Growth Coach was founded in 2003, but the company’s leaders have a 20 year track record of successful business coaching. Recently, the franchise was included in the Bond’s Top 100 Franchises and has been recognized in Entrepreneur Magazine’s “Franchise 500,” “Best of the Best” and “Top Home-Based Business” listings. While most of the coaching is delivered through affordable group workshops, owners also provide one-to-one coaching, remote coaching delivered via phone and web, and special projects.
In addition to the proven services The Growth Coach currently offers, the company also is in the process of rolling out online coaching, alternative financing for businesses, business valuation software and services, an updated brand image and logo and more.
The Growth Coach also has invested significant effort into international expansion and is already working with Master Franchise owners in Ecuador, Mexico, Canada, Australia, India and more. The corporate team is also working to build relationships in Peru, Chile, Paraguay, Argentina, Bolivia, Turkey, Cypress, the United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Spain, Germany and South Africa.
Lopez, who grew up in a blue-collar family in Cleveland, just moved to the Cincinnati area from Akron, OH. He has been married to Marie for 11 years and the couple has two children, Anthony and Cecilia. As The Growth Coach’s Director of Operations, he’ll be overseeing the company’s operations budget, working directly with franchise owners and helping to improve revenues among other duties.
“As The Growth Coach continues to grow around the world, we need to make absolutely sure that we have the supports for our entire system in place from the bottom up. I’m looking forward to being more directly involved with our owners around the world and ensuring we’re providing the tools and support they need to be successful,” Lopez said.
Owens added: “David is a hero to us, to our country and to small business owners. He understands the challenges and he’s able to speak to people at all levels and that’s going to be especially important as our franchise continues to grow both in the United States and internationally at a rapid rate.”
