APR 11
Andy Goddard,
Executive Transition Life Coaching.

Andy worked for 30 years in the electronics manufacturing business, founding and leading several companies, utilizing his entrepreneurial and management skills to build not only a team of dedicated employees, but also a loyal customer base that included companies like Motorola, Sony, Boeing, General Electric, Honeywell, NASA and Allied Signal. While Andy had seen a great deal of success in business, his passion for the corporate life diminished and his desire to reach out to others and achieve significance increased. He realized God was directing him along a new path and has spent the past seven years coaching others. He served as Director of Coaching for Bob Buford's Halftime Organization for a year before embarking on a solo venture as an executive transition and life coach. Andy's aim is to help men and women discover and utilize their God-given gifts and passions.
