Las Vegas, NV, --(PR.com)-- Master Licensees Ian Christelow and Julie Wagstaff have named Jonathan Booker as an ActionCOACH in England.
His office will be located in the North East and Cumbria region in England.
"This area has had a real rebirth from its industrial past. And we are looking at supporting local business to reach the next level and cement the new found pride and success of the region." Booker said.
Booker, who enquired about a position with a franchise owner in York, was impressed by founder and CEO Brad Sugars' videos and realized that ActionCOACH was a good fit for him.
"It was almost like everything I believed in and aspired to be – consciously and sub-consciously – was put together for me; the culture seemed perfect and I decided to become an ActionCOACH," he said.
Prior to becoming an ActionCOACH, Booker was the Divisional Director for a Financial Services company in the retail industry. He was responsible for supporting and leading a team to deliver excellent results – in both turn around and growth opportunities.
During his seven year tenure with this company, Booker worked his way through seven promotions –ultimately leading a £50 million operation.
"During a two-year period, I was able to turn around three poor performing regions – the worst performing region increased profits by 45% in just six months," he said. "The biggest accomplishment was the development of the senior management teams through systemizing and training and development of their core skills."
Booker believes that his past experience coupled with the ActionCOACH systems will help him in delivering great results for his clients.
"I understand the opportunity that business owners have to be leaders and entrepreneurs in their businesses and how building and developing strong teams can deliver powerful results," he said.
Booker was impressed by the culture of ActionCOACH.
"ActionCOACH is a real community; it truly aspires to live its values and offers a real platform for success," he said.
Booker needed a change of career and the prospect of helping other business owners succeed seemed like a positive one.
"I will take my new role as an opportunity to fulfill my goals whilst spreading ActionCOACH's philosophy – which I truly believe in," he said.
A sports enthusiast, Booker plays football and cricket for his local teams.
