October 07, 2010 // Franchising.com // LAS VEGAS – Marshall Saunders had a desire to be in business for himself while making a contribution to society by assisting businesses and their owners. Luckily for Saunders, and his prospective clients, he found ActionCOACH just in time to make an impact.
ActionCOACH is the world's leader in business and executive coaching. When Brad Sugars, Chairman and Founder, started the company in 1993, it was still in its nascent stages. By franchising the company in 1997, Sugars helped business coaching become more mainstream turning it into the second fastest growing category behind Information Technology. ActionCOACH specializes in coaching small to medium size business as well as executive teams and group coaching.
Saunders was looking for a new opportunity when a trusted advisor told him to take a closer look at ActionCOACH. Saunders looked and found a company that matched his desire for success with a systemized methodology for business growth.
"ActionCOACH combines my desire to assist businesses in a creative and proactive manner with a proven system aimed at achieving even higher levels of success for businesses and their owners."
Saunders spent most of his professional career in accounting and coming from an accounting background gives him great perspective on businesses and how they develop plans for improving their bottom lines. He also knows how to work with individuals to find unique paths to success thanks to outstanding people skills.
"I have always worked well with individuals in establishing goals and managing their progress toward achieving those goals. A good rapport is essential and one of my strengths is the ability to gain the confidence of others so tasks are well managed through completion."
Saunders' firm will be located in Roseland, New Jersey and he will be serving the northeast portion of New Jersey, in the western shadow of New York City. Saunders began his journey as an ActionCOACH firm owner in Las Vegas, Nevada where the ActionCOACH Global Office is located.
