Seasoned marketing professional will build strategic alliances

Elm Grove, WI – August 21, 2012 – ActionCOACH of Elm Grove has hired Gary Peavler as Director of Marketing. Peavler will lead the introduction of a new type of coaching for local business owners called ActionCLUB.

“As Director of Marketing, one of Gary’s responsibilities will be building strategic alliances with organizations that share our mission and values to help small business owners grow. We know the vast majority of businesses are under one million dollars in revenue. These owners are eager to learn new ways to manage and operate their businesses. Our goal is to create 2,000 new jobs by 2014 through the businesses we coach, and we expect that most of those jobs will come from these businesses,” said Tom Palzewicz, partner at ActionCOACH.

Gary Peavler added, “I’m excited to be a part of a growing firm that has done such great work in the regional business community. I’ll be leading ActionCOACH in a new direction that will allow small and medium size businesses to receive world-class business coaching at an affordable investment level. This program is geared to the business owner who is wearing multiple hats and wants to learn how to delegate and hold people accountable and make more money at the same time. They’ll also get a chance to share their challenges and network with other entrepreneurs of equal size.

“Our strategic alliance partners – CPA firms, banks, law firms, insurance and technology providers – have a common need to stay in touch with their business clients and develop innovative marketing to attract new clients. They will benefit from their relationship with us by helping their clients and prospects learn new systems, strategies and tactics that will help them in building their business, growing jobs, and revenues.”
