Ed is one of the most thoughtful and insightful coaches/facilitators I've had the pleasure to work with over the past several years. Ed is always challenging you in a positive way. He truly helps us gain insight into our practice and business in general with ideas and suggestions never considered in the past. Ed helps me personally, to "think bigger" regarding our practice. In between meetings Ed is always "peppering" us with great articles related to all aspects of business; from dealing with Covid in your work environment to how to conduct business in a virtual world or becoming a leader as opposed to a manger, etc. Most importantly, Ed is a fantastic person. I Highly recommend Ed's coaching/facilitation to anyone wanting to better their business and/or themselves!
Mark CissellPresident & CEO, KatzAbosch
There are few people in a lifetime that you encounter and feel like you are in the presence of greatness. Ed is one of these individuals. His personal drive for continuous learning, passion for teaching others and ability to inspire already successful CEO's is second to none. I have gained tremendous knowledge and awareness from Ed and look forward to much more. In addition to being a smart and practical leader he is a hell of a nice guy to boot! I would highly recommend Ed's services to anyone seeking sound, intelligent and meaningful leadership solutions.
Rich ValwayCEO, Culinary Services Group
I'm now entering my third year with Ed as my Vistage group chair. It's obvious that Ed is passionate about what he does. He takes a personal interest in the success of everyone he works with. His combined abilities in personal development and business management have been life changing for me and the way I run my business. With Ed's guidance my organization has become more focused, productive and and goal oriented. 2020 was a very difficult year for my industry, thanks to him our sales exceeded 2019. I only wish I had met Ed 10 years ago.

I am a better leader today due to his efforts.
Kenny MallickCEO, Mallick Mechanical Contractors
Ed has been a terrific leader, coach, supporter and most of all friend. You are not always going to hear what you want, but Ed will tell you like it is and make you a better person for it. If you are considering Ed for anything from Vistage to 1-1 coaching sessions, I wholeheartedly would recommend Ed.

Ed challenges me and our management team with out-of-the-box thinking and discrete measurement for every difficult decision we make. He makes difficult decisions seem simple and logical.

Ed is current on the latest business trends and acumen, knowing the intimate details behind business and accounting best practices. He gets the big picture and helps keep us focused to allow our company to obtain it's ultimate goal. In addition to our whole-business consulting, Ed has helped me mature as a business owner. I highly recommend Ed for any business owner looking for guidance and insight on moving your company to the next level.

Ed has been critical in my development and pursuit to not only become a better leader in my organization but also a better person in general. Ed does a great job holding me accountable and pushing me to think critically and overcome any obstacle in my way.

Kevin PolandVice President of Service Delivery at American Pest
One of the most sincere, knowledgeable mentors I've ever had the pleasure of meeting and learning from. I've always had an issue with staying engaged and interested for long periods of time and Ed has kept me interested and engaged with his delivery that comes straight from heart.
I encourage ANYONE to reach out to Ed and just have a conversation with him. You'll walk away feeling inspired and renewed to want growth both personally and professionally!
