The Team

Geoff Grenert, MBA

Benchmark Associate & Senior Consultant

Transformational Leadership

To say that Geoff grew up with a true understanding of leadership and the power of teams is an understatement. His father was a two sport, professional athlete, a small college hall of fame basketball coach and championship-winning, high school basketball coach. He also managed a semiprofessional baseball team. Geoff continued this legacy by playing on and being appointed captain of numerous sports teams. With this as a foundation Geoff has been a leader, mentor and coach for most of his life. Teams and leadership and coaching have been a major part of all aspects of his life.

Geoff brought his personal experiences, as well as those learned from his father into his business career with United Parcel Service and RPS (now FedEx Ground). He was the founder and president of six different companies, ranging from two regional package delivery companies, financial consulting, a restaurant franchise and a not-for-profit community service organization, to a consulting firm specializing in executive coaching, leadership development and team development.

His strength lies in his having "been there and done that." His successes and failures allow him to bring a unique perspective to bear on the needs of his clientele.

Geoff helps people recognize behaviors that stand in their way to becoming the best they can be. His mission is to help clients become outstanding leaders and high performing managers, and to improve the quality of their lives as well as the lives of the people who work with them.

He has coached executives in the Transportation industry, Pharmaceutical industry, Investment bankers and Dot COM companies. His clients include managers, scientists, marketing directors, sales executives, Ph.D's and MD's.

His mission is to maximize executive and team effectiveness, which leads to higher levels of productivity, superior performance and job satisfaction for executives and employees, and achievement of organizational goals. Geoff is committed to facilitating change to enhance the success of companies across the spectrum from local to global.
