Consultant and Business Operator, Doug Dredge Joins the ActionCOACH Team

Doug Dredge is excited about his new role as an ActionCOACH in the state of Utah.

Las Vegas, NV, May 11, 2008 --( Master Licensee, Kevin Alft has named Doug Dredge as an ActionCOACH in Utah.

Dredge’s office will be located in Salt Lake City but he will be operating throughout the state.

For 20 years, Dredge was the majority shareholder and president of a trucking company and has been a consultant for several years.

Dredge was instrumental in growing the contract customer-base of the company, helping it secure several national and global food industry accounts.

“We were a profitable company and were able to grow our fleet from about 13 trucks to nearly 200 when it was sold, generating over $24 million in sales and employing about 240 people - including 25 owner-operators,” he said.
As a consultant, Dredge was able to design and implement programs that increased the average dollar sale per unit by 31%.

“I was part of restructuring the accounting department of a company during a particularly difficult period. We were able to maintain the line of credit and relationship with the bank and still project a savings of nearly $300,000 in interest, fees, and accounting payroll costs for the next year. The procedures we implemented have subsequently been responsible for reducing the past 90-day receivables by over $200, 000,” he said.

Dredge has the innate ability to understand his clients’ problems.

“In hindsight, I completely understand how valuable this type of coaching could have been for my company – if I would have sold the company at all, it would have been different. I believe that if I would have had an ActionCOACH a year or two before the sale, it would have made a difference of millions,” he said.

When Dredge learned about the “14 Points of Culture” at ActionCOACH and did his due diligence, he discovered the company actually lives by them. This strengthened his decision to become an ActionCOACH.

Dredge is actively involved in his church. He is also a member of the Salt Lake Area Chamber and the Utah Trucking Association.
