Executive Team

Members of our executive team have been assisting global organizations with strategic alignment and leadership development for over 150 years collectively. We have held EVP and VP positions within human resources and talent management divisions of Fortune 500 companies. We bring a buyer’s perspective to all of our client engagements and understand the criticality of linking all leadership development and coaching initiatives to your bottom line and operational goals. When we’re invited to drive larger initiatives on behalf of our client partners, our management expertise assures programs are delivered with global consistency and measurability.

GCA’s understanding of organizational dynamics ensures that the actions taken and changes made during the coaching process are consistent with your organization’s vision, values, and strategy. Our leadership team ensures that we promote best practices in all our work and we provide oversight to every one of our assignments as part of our commitment to accountability and quality for our business clients. As your partner, we will help you shape a coaching program built for results.
