“My hometown, Cleveland, is a truly great city,” says Treu. “Cleveland has so much to offer and we are witnessing a renaissance with exciting building and infrastructure projects. But to become a GREATER Cleveland, we need to grow jobs and grow small and medium sized businesses.” This vision is the motivation behind Treu’s mission to drive business success and in turn help balance the lives of business owners, professionals, and executives.
Treu opened the The Growth Coach practice after a successful 32 year career in the banking industry, including 22 years with U.S.Bank where he held the positions of Market President and Executive Vice President. While at US Bank, Treu was able to demonstrate his passion as a coaching trainer and practitioner and coupled with extensive Transformational Leadership Training, Treu knew that he wanted to take this passion much further.

Quite simply, The Growth Coach proprietary programs work. Owning or managing a business is more than buildings and numbers; it is about realizing a dream and finding success both professionally and personally.”
