Management buyout for ActionCOACH Loughborough
Business coaching franchise ActionCOACH Loughborough has announced a change in hands as Managing Director and UK coach Matt Bull takes ownership from Founder Laurence Duncan.
ActionCOACH is one of the largest coaching business in the world, with franchises in more than 140 countries, and its mission is to support, guide and educate business owners – from start-ups to growing firms, as well as those looking to retire.
Matt, who has been with the award-winning team for just over four years, made the move to coaching after a successful career in finance and wanted to pursue his passion of having a positive impact on people and their businesses. Matt was also named UK Coach of the Year 2021, for the results he helped his clients achieve.
He said: “I’m delighted to be taking ownership of the business and to drive things forward. I am passionate about helping business owners not only grow their business but more importantly, help them to create the life they dream of.
“Our main focus is to support the businesses on our doorstep, in Leicestershire, first and foremost. Coaching isn’t for everyone as it involves being open to challenge and new ways of thinking, but there is real value in what we do and we’re here to help those who want to make a change and need some guidance on how best to do it. Our clients’ results show that with commitment any business owner can achieve whatever they want, in business and in life.”
“ActionCOACH is a fantastic brand to be a part of, not only does it have a proven business growth framework but more importantly there is great peer support from owners around the world. It’s an exciting time for all of us and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.”
Laurence will remain as a coach in the business and was recently ranked in the ActionCOACH Global Top 15 Coaches for client results achieved.
He said: “It’s a real pleasure to be handing over the reins to Matt. He’s gone from strength to strength since joining us and I have no doubt the business will continue to grow in his hands. I look forward to continuing to be a part of the journey and future plans.”
ActionCOACH Loughborough offers various membership programmes, from a BookCLUB to 90 Day Planning Days, as well as both Group and 121 Coaching and standalone team building and training days.
