Helping CEOs scale high-impact companies.
After years of leading and advising high-impact companies as a CEO coach, and as a 3HAG certified coach, Ethan believes that the key to building both a great business and living a fulfilling life is serving something greater than yourself. Whether you call it a mission, purpose, or higher calling, Ethan has seen it happen in his work again and again: when CEOs align their company around a purpose greater than themselves, not only do their business financials improve, they also become happier, more fulfilled leaders.
Having a greater purpose brings a clarity, confidence, and focus to your business that few CEOs can claim, and even fewer know how to wield effectively to scale both their bottom-line and their impact on the world. This is the core of Ethan Martin’s work as President at PFD Group, Inc., where he helps successful CEOs clarify what’s most important to them -i.e. their core values and mission, scaling their companies in both financial results and impact on the world, building an effective and engaged senior leadership team, creating an inspiring company culture that attracts and retains the best talent, execution on long-term goals that lead to both a successful business and a sustainable, fulfilling life.
