MIAMI, July 2, 2024 – CEO Coaching International, the leading executive coaching firm for growth-focused CEOs and entrepreneurs globally, is pleased to announce Jon Hyman as its newest Partner and Coach.

For his thought leadership, Hyman has been featured on MSNBC, CNBC, andThe Wall Street Journal, among other forums.
