ActionCOACH Tampa Bay Names Juliet Kyes Managing Partner

Move marks a major evolution in the firm’s commitment to innovation.

ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. – NOVEMBER 10, 2021 — ActionCOACH Tampa Bay is pleased to announce that Juliet Kyes is taking over the role of Managing Partner from her mother, Barb Kyes. Barb Kyes had been running the firm as managing partner for the last 14 years. Her new title is Founding Partner, a title she shares with her husband, Ford Kyes.

“Juliet is a valuable member of ActionCOACH Tampa Bay and has been incremental in growing our business and serving many roles along the way,” says Barb Kyes. “I am incredibly proud of her understanding, knowledge, and growth in an industry that no one understood when the three of us started the business in 2007.  She has been preparing for this role of managing partner by building on what she has learned over the last 14 years as an incredible leader and coach.”

Juliet’s responsibilities include oversight of the financials as chief financial officer, running the recruitment, coaching and training new business coaches, and setting quarterly goals and holding accountability for the overall firm initiatives. She will also report tracking in weekly team meetings, complete performance reviews, recognize employees with individual and team awards, and oversight of other key management roles in marketing, sales, coaching operations, financials, administration, and human resources.

“The role gives me the ability to make decisions and take action today that will create the future vision that my team and I are passionate about creating,” says Kyes. “We are driven to make a ripple effect of abundance in our community and beyond by teaching business owners how to shift from working 80+ hours a week to unlocking their unlimited earning potential with the lifestyle of a real business owner that have a business that can work with them. ”

The transition is important because the change in leadership — and eventually ownership stake — is a major milestone in the 10-year succession plan that was created by the founding partners three years ago. It also marks a change in leadership style and innovation as the firm takes their internal systems and client results to the next level. Among the company’s primary focus: Recruit a team of talented business coaches.
