Deane Gyllenhaal has joined Intelligent Leadership Executive Coaching (ILEC), one of the most respected names in the coaching industry dedicated to growing strong leaders at every level, building cultures and driving results, as an Executive Leadership Coach. 

After 30 years on Wall Street in a variety of roles, Gyllenhaal says he chose ILEC after looking at multiple other business opportunities because it was the perfect marriage of opportunity, impact and allowing him to utilize his unique leadership experience.

“I joined ILEC for a lot of reasons,” said Gyllenhaal. “It’s a dynamic, interesting team. They have great support, and it overlaps with a lot of what I have done in my prior roles in terms of business development, managing teams and being involved at a leadership level at a large organization. The Mattone model is proven, and it has been around for a long time. I think having that behind me allows me to be in business for myself, but not by myself.”

Since its founding in 2010, ILEC has provided franchisees like Gyllenhaal with a platform to operate as a coach, utilizing decades of executive experience in many cases, as well as a way to run a business with a proven blueprint. ILEC’s coaching method has transformed the lives of nearly 1,000 CEOs, entrepreneurs and executives and impacted the success of thousands of organizations across more than 50 countries. Now, with the COVID-19 pandemic disrupting organizations across every industry, business leaders are in more need of support than ever, and as a ILEC executive coach,  Gyllenhaal is prepared to fill that void.

“We are thrilled to welcome Deane Gyllenhaal to the ILEC family, and we are confident he  will be the perfect owner to satisfy the growing demand for executive coaching in Massachusetts,” said Co-founder and CEO John Mattone, four-time winner of Global Gurus World No. 1 coaching award. “We believe ILEC provides massive opportunities to experienced leaders like Gyllenhaal, pursuing the next exciting phase of their lives and careers by delivering world-class executive coaching that sophisticated clients demand in today's world. It’s a beautiful opportunity to touch the hearts, minds and souls of leaders everywhere.”

“I love coaching,” said Gyllenhaal. “I've coached sports my whole life, so coaching is a big part of who I am. I’ve also been in leadership roles at some of the organizations I've worked for in the investment space, and whether it’s sports, business or investments, one thing is constant: Leadership skills are critical for people who want to excel. And as I grow my ILEC business, I want to make sure that my clients excel and that they can accomplish the goals that they want to accomplish.”
