As the president of The Growth Coach, I want to make sure our entire team is focused on the success of the brand AND the success of each individual franchise owner.
Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) October 08, 2015
The Growth Coach, a global business and sales coaching franchise system, has brought on a proven franchise leader and operator to strengthen and expand its U.S. and international operations, support teams, and the growth rate of new franchise openings. Ray Fabik, an experienced franchise executive and business coach has been named the new president of The Growth Coach.
The Growth Coach was founded in Cincinnati, Ohio, and sold its first franchise in 2003. The company’s leaders have a successful 23-year track record of helping small business owners and their teams achieve greater success and balance. Today, the business and sales coaching franchise is in more than 100 major U.S. markets and in over a dozen countries worldwide. The Growth Coach’s mission is to significantly transform lives and business around the world, one community at a time.
“That meaningful mission speaks to my heart and soul. That is why I am here. At my core I am a teacher, mentor, and coach. So I am very excited and blessed to have the opportunity to fulfill our external mission as well as the internal mission of elevating the support, coaching and success of our franchise owners in the U.S. and around the world. After all, when our franchise owners win and their clients win, we (the franchisor) win,” Fabik said.
Prior to coming to The Growth Coach, Fabik spent almost three years with Comfort Keepers first as a Business Unit Leader and then the Vice President of Company Operations. In that role, he worked as a business coach for Comfort Keepers franchise owners, supporting substantial business and personal success. Before joining Comfort Keepers, Fabik held leadership and coaching roles with Luxottica Retail, working with Sears Optical and LensCrafters.
“Everybody needs objective coaching and accountability to reach higher levels of success and personal satisfaction, including our own franchise owners/coaches. To help coach our coaches is very rewarding and a perfect fit for me. Additionally, I am committed to making The Growth Coach the recognized, go-to global coaching brand – the industry gold standard,” Fabik said.
With his background and passion for coaching, Fabik is looking forward to spending time over the next year strengthening the relationship between the individual franchise owners and the corporate support team. In fact, the company’s corporate structure has already been reorganized to better focus on franchise owner support, connections, and communication.
When he was at Comfort Keepers, one of Fabik’s roles was to interface with owners as a business coach – whether that meant helping a successful franchisee realize she wanted to sell the business or providing additional support to help a single mom turn her failing franchise into a rousing success.
“In both of those situations, I was able to step in and make a difference. Sometimes the answers aren’t complicated, but the franchise owners need objective guidance to get there. As the president of The Growth Coach, I want to make sure our entire team is focused on the success of the brand AND the success of each individual franchise owner. Our network is full of wonderful people and we need to be supporting them in every way possible,” Fabik said.
In addition to the work he’s going to be doing internally with the domestic network, Fabik will also continue to expand and strengthen the international network of master franchise owners who help lift up countries and communities around the world. He’s also in the conceptual stages of building a non-profit arm of the company to help spread entrepreneurial education and spirit to high school students around the world to foster more entrepreneurs in more countries doing more good things.
The Growth Coach is the largest provider of affordable group coaching workshops in the nation, but coaches also offer one-to-one coaching services, remote coaching delivered via phone and web, and coaching for special projects as well as alternative financing, business valuation services, sales mapping and more. Clients include the owners of small- and medium-sized businesses, management teams, sales teams and self-employed professionals among others.
The Growth Coach was included in Bond’s “Top 100 Franchises” and recognized in Entrepreneur Magazine’s “Franchise 500” and “Best of the Best,” in USA Today as one of the “Top 50 Franchises for Veterans” and “50 Top Franchises for Minorities” and has been featured on FOX, CBS and NBC. The company’s Strategic Mindset Process is so effective that it comes with a money-back guarantee.
