Akers believes that his experience coupled with the extraordinary ActionCOACH systems will lead to success in his new endeavor.
/24-7PressRelease/ - LAS VEGAS, NV, May 08, 2008 - David Drewelow, ActionCOACH Master Licensee, has named Jerry Akers as the newest ActionCOACH in Iowa.
Akers will be located in Cedar Rapids, North East Iowa.
Prior to becoming an ActionCOACH, Akers spent 32 years in sales and marketing management.
He was responsible for growing two firms from low sales into industry leaders. He was named president of the state-wide organization, Mechanical Service Contractors of Iowa for two years.
Having managed and trained people for many years, Akers firmly believes that he has an intimate knowledge of the issues facing business owners in the areas of time, team, and money.
Akers' professional success had come at the cost of his health, and family life.
"I was at a point in life when I wanted to escape a job that paid well but had taken a toll on my health and family," he said.
Akers decided to join ActionCOACH because he saw an opportunity to use his education, skills, and experience to help other business owners succeed.
"I helped build several businesses in the past and had the desire to build one of my own. ActionCOACH gave me that opportunity. I also have a great relationship with my Master Licensee and I knew that he would give me accurate information relating to ActionCOACH and this helped with my decision to join the company," he said.
Akers felt that for the first time, there was a company that had a system and a passion perfectly matched with the need of small-to-medium sized businesses in the marketplace.
"I am excited be a part of ActionCOACH. It is an organization so driven to success that it constantly strives to perform at its peak," he said.
Akers is a member of the Optimists Club, the MDA and the Chamber of Commerce.
