ActionCOACH Celebrates 20 Years of Helping Business Owners Reach Potential

World’s Leading Business Coaching Company Reaches Business Owners in 50 Countries

October 7, 2013 - Las Vegas- ActionCOACH, the world’s number one business coaching company, recently celebrated its 20th Anniversary of helping business owners build profitable, commercial enterprises that work…without them. ActionCOACH, which began as Action International, works with business owners in 50 countries, was founded by Brad Sugars, who remains the chairman of the company today.

"I’ve owned dozens of businesses over the years but ActionCOACH has always been my passion," Sugars said. "I’ve always loved working with other business owners to help them build the business they’ve always dreamed of. Our goal is to have a coach in every business and promote world abundance through business re-education. I’m excited with how far we’ve come and to see how far we get over the next 20 years."

ActionCOACH is the world’s leader in business and executive coaching. Sugars started the company in 1993 when the concept of business coaching was still in its infancy. 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 sized businesses as well as executive, teams, and group coaching.

"It’s an honor to lead a team with so many terrific coaches and people. We’ve worked very hard to provide the best possible experience to business owners," Sugars said. "We’ve had many innovations over the last two decades, including the fact that we are the first coaching company to offer a guarantee. I believe that type of forward thinking will keep us at the top of the business coaching industry for years to come."

Over the last few years, ActionCOACH has grown its footprint considerable, expanding into over a dozen countries as well as becoming the featured sponsor of the Business Excellence Forum and Awards. ActionCOACH is also familiar with winning awards, having been awarded the #1 Business Coaching Franchise in the World every year since 2004 by Entrepreneur Magazine. The company was also named Best Overall Company in North America (Stevie Awards) and has received dozens of other awards. Recently ActionCOACH ranked at #50 in Franchise Direct’s list of Top 100 Global Franchises, the fourth straight year ActionCOACH has made the list and its highest ranking over that time, up from 77 in 2011.
