Ed Wekesser has a lifetime of experience owning businesses, consulting with business owners and COACHING business owners and CEOs. During his entrepreneurial career, Ed has started, grown and sold several companies - to inside employees, a national competitor, and a Fortune 100 firm. With 25 years of successful entrepreneurial experience, Ed has been instrumental in building exceptional management teams and creating strong operating environments. He has been both a sole owner and a partner, two very different environments. And, he has personally lived all the "hard stuff" that goes along with owning and operating your own company.
Today, Ed's sole focus is EXECUTIVE COACHING - helping Christian business owners and CEOs grow great companies while maintaining lives that glorify God. He feels It takes both “Head” (successful business experience) and “Heart” (the personal/spiritual side of life) to be an effective Executive Coach to Christian business owners and CEOs.
His approach to coaching is unique in that his ownership/consulting background seeps in to the overall coaching experience as he assists his clients in becoming more effective leaders for their companies, families and communities.
Ed and his wife are members at Waterstone Community Church. He has been an elder in two churches totaling 25 years, and has served on the boards of several non-profit Christian organizations. Over the years, Ed has mentored/coached dozens of men, counseled couples, and taught numerous Bible studies. He has been married to his wife for over 45 years.

His coaching lasers in on two of his passions, growing great companies and helping its leaders move toward the life they were designed by God to live. He believes business owners are stewards of the businesses God has gifted to them, and while it is their responsibility to lead their organizations well, their leadership needs to really shine at home. His coaching builds upon the premise that humility, integrity and personal surrender to God form the foundation of all great leadership.
