FocalPoint 2016 Area Representative Award

Online PR News – 25-June-2016 – San Francisco, California – FocalPoint Business Coaching has awarded “Team California” with the 2016 Area Representative of the Year Award which recognizes the top recruiters and supporters of coaches amongst all FocalPoint Areas. This year rather than a single individual, FocalPoint Coaching expanded the scope of the award to include the entire region steered by Bob Hechler, Peter Irish and Tonya Page who have shown an exemplary level of leadership. “Team California is a microcosm of the FocalPoint organization as a whole,” says Tonya Page. “As founder Brian Tracy says, ‘Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others, while unsuccessful people are always asking, ‘what\'s in it for me?’ The willingness to give, share, and support the whole gives back greatly.’ I consider it a great honor to receive this award as a team with Bob and Peter. By Brian Tracy’s metric, these two individuals are successful people – they have tirelessly given me time, direction and insights that have made me a stronger part of the team as a whole.” All three members of Team California come from decades of experience in business leadership. Bob Hechler is an expert in leading global sales, marketing and business development programs for consumer products and manufacturing companies. Throughout a career of more than 30 years, he’s led companies toward unprecedented revenue, profit and share in highly competitive, dynamic markets. He is President of FocalPoint Business Coaching of Southern California and Chair of FocalPoint’s Strategic Advisory Group (STAG). “Being a FocalPoint coach is a gratifying and challenging endeavor,” Hechler says. “Helping business owners identify and overcome obstacles that have been preventing them from maximizing their business performance is wonderful to experience. The challenges of facing a different challenge every day keeps me mentally sharp and constantly in a learning mode.” Peter Irish has over three decades of experience, holding management and executive roles in industries such as food manufacturing, retailing, direct mail, hygienic paper products, amusement parks, and packaging, mainly in Europe and North America. He is President of FocalPoint’s Northern California region and Chair of FocalPoint’s Area Representative Council (ARC). “We have achieved a great deal for FocalPoint Business Coaches in California already,” and I expect that we will make another significant leap again this year,” says Irish.
