Marysville, OH, July 26, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Duane Hammer was drawn to ActionCOACH by the lure of being in business for himself and helping his home state of Ohio prosper economically. Duane knows that with ActionCOACH behind him, he can make a positive impact on his community while building a better life for himself.
ActionCOACH is the world’s leader in business and executive coaching. When Brad Sugars, Chairman and Founder, started the company in 1993, it was still in its nascent stages. By franchising the company in 1997, Sugars helped business coaching become more mainstream turning it into the second fastest growing category behind Information Technology. ActionCOACH specializes in coaching small to medium size business as well as executive teams and group coaching.
ActionCOACH fits Duane like a glove. “My first impression of ActionCOACH was very favorable and has only grown since then. I’m drawn to the concept of helping business owners become more profitable and find balance in work, family and faith,” Duane said recently.
Duane found ActionCOACH by attending an ActionCOACH seminar. After speaking with Craig Hohnberger, Master Licensee for the Ohio region of ActionCOACH, Duane knew he had found a great opportunity for himself, his family and his community.
Duane has called Union County, Ohio home for 30 years. He will take the expertise he has learned through a successful business career and help rebuild the economic base of his community by partnering with ActionCOACH.
“My exposure to all types of businesses and business owners- some successful, some not- has given me insight into what drives a business to be successful and what causes businesses to fail,” said Duane
In addition to his business success, Duane is also active in the Union County YMCA and the First English Lutheran Church and will soon be a member of the Union County Chamber of Commerce, as well as other local business organizations.
Duane’s new firm will be in Marysville, Ohio and he will practice in Union County as well as the surrounding counties. Duane began his journey as an ActionCOACH firm owner in Las Vegas, Nevada where the ActionCOACH Global Office is located. Here he spent 10 days training with other new firm owners and business coaches from around the world. They learned the ins and outs of ActionCOACH, how to run a business the ActionCOACH way, branding, systems and techniques, as well as how to apply their knowledge to any business and much more.
Craig Hohnberger stated, “Duane Hammer brings a wealth of experience and talent to the ActionCOACH team in Ohio. With his strong business background and balanced approach, he can be a very powerful resource for any business that works with ActionCOACH.”
