/24-7PressRelease/ - LAS VEGAS, NV, April 17, 2008 - Kevin Alft, ActionCOACH Master Licensee, has named Ryan Cooper as ActionCOACH in Texas.
Cooper will be working out of his home office for the first year and is located just north of Houston, Texas.
Prior to being an ActionCOACH, Cooper was the Vice President of a Sub-prime mortgage firm. "I have worked with some really special people on some phenomenal projects. One such project was the largest acquisition of non-performing loans of that time, which had a final price of over $ 1 billion," he said.
He has also had the opportunity to work with a company that acquired loans in the secondary market. "In 2005 and 2006, we purchased over $5 billion worth of loans in each of those years," he added.
His first impression of ActionCOACH was excellent.
"From the start, Kevin was a man of his word, which is a reflection of the level of professionalism within the ActionCOACH system. He is very reliable, courteous and approachable; he is an excellent representation of everyone else I met at Discovery Day and again at training," he said.
Cooper has worked with teams in implementing systems. His past experience in developing teams and great systems will hugely benefit his new role as an ActionCOACH. "This will be a great opportunity for me to see people regain control of their lives," he said.
As a result of the disaster in the sub-prime mortgage market, Cooper was forced to go through a change of career.
"I could either change industries or follow my passion. By joining ActionCOACH, I am in control of my destiny; I now steer the ship rather than just row the boat for someone else," he said.
A change in mindset and lifestyle motivated Cooper to become an ActionCOACH.
"ActionCOACH is the world's leading business coaching firm and I couldn't think of a better company to join," he said.
Cooper is very active within the local community.
Besides coaching his twin boys' soccer team, he heads Transit Team at his local church. Along with his wife, he also hosts a small-group bible study on Sunday nights. "I am also pursuing some volunteer opportunities in my local Chamber of Commerce and plan to host several small-business-group breakfasts throughout the month," he said.
ActionCOACH is the world's number one business coaching firm, with more than 1,000 offices in 26 countries. To learn more, go to actioncoach.com.
