AchieveNEXT Adds Seasoned Career Strategy Expert to Roster, Eric Herrenkohl, to Lead Career and Coaching Services

AchieveNEXT®, a leading provider of subscription-based, peer advisory communities and specialized human capital and business services, is pleased to announce the addition of Eric Herrenkohl to expedite the growth of their Career and Executive Coaching Services.

“As we sprint to year-end and look ahead to 2020, I am convinced that adding someone like Eric to our AchieveNEXT team today is critical,” says AchieveNEXT CEO Nick Araco. “With our support, Eric can help us take all that has made the Kelleher name a premier name in Career & Executive Coaching Services for two decades to the next level by enhancing our expertise and by adding a fresh, but respected, voice to the clients and markets we serve and desire to serve – with deliberate focus on better connecting our Human Capital Services and Solutions to our Alliance Communities.”

“As we all know, the current lack of available workforce in the U.S. is the single greatest threat to the growth and expansion for American businesses. It is a mathematical certainty that there will not be enough available talent to fill all the needs of employers over the next decade. There will be winners and losers in this ‘War for Talent.’”

“AchieveNEXT brings a unique approach to solving human capital challenges, and the Kelleher name is synonymous with superior career and executive coaching. I look forward to being a part of this innovative company,” says Eric Herrenkohl, Managing Director and Executive Coach.
