ActionCOACH Builds Manufacturing Expertise into its Business Coaching Team

David Ford opens an ActionCOACH practice serving Minneapolis businesses and entrepreneurs

Minneapolis, MN, February 10, 2008 --( David Ford has joined ActionCOACH, the world's number one business coaching firm, with responsibility for clients in north Minneapolis and surrounding communities.

Ford comes to the company from a long career at a Fortune 500 electronics manufacturer, where he served as a program manager for circuit board manufacturing operations.

His own experience as an ActionCOACH client attracted Ford to the company.
As a passive partner in his wife's small business, Ford reviewed the coaching and mentoring sessions provided by her ActionCOACH as part of her one-on-one coaching sessions.

"The results were amazing," Ford said. "Not only did the business become more profitable, she actually started working fewer hours and had regained her passion for the business."

Alan Edelmann, ActionCOACH Master Licensee, was impressed by Ford's desire to help others.

"We are accustomed to clients' excitement when we show them the way to success and satisfaction, but David still stood out." Edelmann said. "He is truly a man on a mission to help other entrepreneurs find the fulfillment in business ownership that he and his wife have."

ActionCOACH targets key areas of time, team and money in every business to improve performance and effectiveness.

Ford believes that his corporate experience provides additional value to clients.

"As program manager, I had complete P&L accountability for multi-million dollar projects, yet I was also expected to understand complex circuit diagrams," he said.

"For my clients, that experience has prepared me to grasp the macroeconomics of their business, markets and competition, and still analyze the processes in their daily operations to boost profit and efficiency."

ActionCOACH is the world's number one business coaching franchise. Started by entrepreneur and CEO Brad Sugars in 1993, the company is one of the fastest growing franchises in the world, with more than 1,000 offices in 26 countries. To learn more about business coaching and ActionCOACH, go to
