Baltimore, MD – A new Baltimore-based executive coaching firm called Protégé Executive Coaching & Consulting, LLC, has been launched to meet the coaching needs of area executives and to provide expert management consultation. Seven highly recognized and accomplished business leaders have joined forces to support area executives, using their decades of leadership and mentoring experience. They have experience in a diverse group of fields, including business, financial/investment services, communications/technology, higher education, healthcare, marketing and communications, government relations, public accounting and non-profits.
Protégé’s principals are Warren Green, former President and CEO of LifeBridge Health; David Nevins, founder of marketing and communications firm Nevins & Associates, Howard Rosen, President of RS&F, a leading regional accounting and consulting firm; Stephen Burch, Board Chairman of the University of Maryland Medical System and former President of the Atlantic Division of Comcast Cable, Joseph DeMattos, Jr., CEO of Health Facilities Association of Maryland (HFAM), Terrence Smith, an executive adviser and former higher education executive, and Judy Berman, former Senior VP of the Baltimore Sun Media Group. Most of the principals also serve on the boards of major corporations and organizations.
“We formed Protégé Executive Coaching & Consulting to help other top executives transform their leadership skills. We can help them make more effective decisions, better resolve conflict, enhance their communication skills, and build better teams, all in a confidential environment,” said Berman. “We serve as trusted advisors who can help them grow, and in turn, help their organizations grow.”
Green added, “Each of us at Protégé has extensive experience mentoring other executives and building their leadership skills. That allows us to be an impartial sounding board that becomes a key ingredient in improving performance and job satisfaction.”
Recent studies have shown that CEOs highly value personal coaching for themselves and their key people. A 2013 Executive Coaching Survey conducted by the Stanford Center for Leadership Development and Research found that, while nearly 100% of CEO respondents now welcome being coached and receiving leadership advice, about two-thirds of them aren’t getting the outside leadership advice they desire.
The company also will offer management consulting services to clients who desire assistance to develop strategic solutions to organizational issues. Burch stated, “Our team has helped grow a number of major corporations through strategic planning, more effective operations and mergers and acquisitions. We can now bring that experience and expertise to help other corporations be equally successful.”
Nevins noted that the company will initially focus on the greater Baltimore/Washington, D.C. market, but that it plans to expand nationally in the future.
