Our expert panel of speakers:
Jeff joined ActionCOACH Atlanta out of a desire to help owners grow their businesses in pursuit of their dreams and to provide a positive contribution to their community. His goal is to take the seemingly complicated responsibility of running a successful business and making it simple and fun. He helps owners de-mystify sales, marketing, planning, profit growth, leadership, business systems, time management, team building and financial management responsibilities. In working with Jeff, business owners are able to increase the success of their business which increases profits while gaining more “free time”.
Prior to joining ActionCOACH Jeff had built a successful 26 year career in sales, sales management, sales support leadership, marketing and project management. As a Senior Vice President at Bank of America and Wachovia, he led initiatives that achieved dramatic results.
Gene Hammett is fiercely committed to working with high-achieving leaders in digital agencies who want to lead with confidence and achieve true financial freedom (in months, not years). As the Managing Director of Core Elevation, Inc., Gene helps leaders transform from stagnate, stressed and struggling to thriving, growing, and loving their work.
Gene is more than just a business coach; he is a business strategist. To create new results, you must find new strategies to take you where you want to go. Gene has the ability to improve your communication skills, increase your influence and build your courage to take the actions necessary to grow your company. Gene has been coaching since 2010, but also spent a decade starting and running multi-million dollar businesses and another decade being a fancy-pants consultant (he is still recovering from those days).
Marc Hershovitz helps small and mid-sized businesses identify and address the legal issues that are involved in the decisions that they make every day.
Because of Marc’s experience advising a variety of individuals and businesses on a diverse range of matters, he brings a unique perspective to the challenges his clients face. Marc’s experience allows him to do more than just tell someone whether something is “legal,” he is able to advise his clients regarding strategy and tactics as they relate to their business objectives.
Marc is a cum laude graduate of The University of Georgia School of Law. He also received his undergraduate degree, cum laude, with high honors and with honors in political science, from The University of Georgia.
Matthew May is a certified public accountant and managing partner of AcuityCFO. Matthew works directly with client owners and management to establish financial strategy. Matthew focuses primarily on financial growth issues and opportunities for emerging, high-growth and established companies.
