Ann Fisher coaches C-Suite executives called to lead in their organizations, who want to draw upon their greatest, most authentic abilities to significantly impact their companies and their communities. She thrives on working with clients who are creating change, driving innovation, and navigating transitions.

As a coach, Ann serves her clients in multiple roles: as a partner, standing shoulder to shoulder as they break new ground; as a sounding board, supporting them as an objective listener; as a scout, who sees the larger context, their possibilities, and potential; and, as a catalyst, helping to spark their commitment and action.

She has worked with clients from PepsiCo, Wrigley, Disney, Yahoo!, Leo Burnett, Estee Lauder, Avon, PNC Bank, Discover, Ford, Nokia, and Hewlett Packard.

After 24 years of corporate business experience, twelve of which were in international and senior managerial roles, Ann chose to become a coach to truly effect change one-on-one with leaders. While Ann’s direct experience is in advertising and publishing, her work exposed her to a wide variety of business climates.

In her last executive position as General Manager, Pacific for Newsweek International, based in Hong Kong, Ann managed multi-culturally and virtually throughout the Asia region. Prior to that, she held management positions in advertising and publishing in Asia and the U.S. with Backer Spielvogel Bates, J. Walter Thompson, and Time Inc.

Ann is based in Chicago and Northern Michigan. She coaches both in the United States and internationally.
