Leadership Team

Like every successful business, our leadership team keeps things running smoothly.

Mike McKay

Partner & Licensed Coach

After 28 years in manufacturing and supply chain roles in the US Army and Fortune 500 companies, I started my coaching company in 2012. I chose ActionCOACH because of the simplicity and scope of the ActionCOACH toolkit and the community of other coaches around the world who continue to push the industry forward into the future. I co-founded ActionCOACH of Madison, LLC in 2014 which grew to include ActionCOACH Dane County, LLC and ActionCOACH Milwaukee #1, LLC.

In October of 2023, Beth and I became sole owners of ActionCOACH Milwaukee #1, LLC. We’ve grown our business by using our own ActionCOACH tools and processes. I’m a member of the ActionCOACH Global Hall of Fame, and a multiple award-winning coach. When I’m not working, you can find me on a golf course somewhere or at Disney World.

Beth McKay

Married to Mike McKay, Beth has been behind the scenes of ActionCOACH  from the very beginning while also working in Early Childhood Education.  In 2021, she retired from teaching and has focused all her energy on creating and maintaining the systems and processes of ActionCOACH.

Jackie Zach

Licensed Coach

Jackie has a well-rounded professional background including management  roles, financial positions and opening a highly successful retail store in Brookfield, WI in 2008 and became an ActionCOACH client in 2009. While  many retailers were forced to close during the economic collapse, Jackie’s  store thrived –a testament to her ability to own and operate a successful business. She sold her store in 2018 after a successful 10-year run. Loving  what her coach helped her achieve, she wanted to help other business  owners do the same.  

Coaching since 2014, her experience as a client AND a coach helps her to understand coaching and business ownership from both sides of the  coin. 

As one of the Top 25 Coaches in the world for ActionCOACH, she can look at your business and pinpoint exactly what's hurting your bottom line and why. One of the areas she specializes in is the unique challenges faced by family-owned businesses from succession planning to family dynamics. 

Jackie also conducts training sessions around DISC and teams. She facilitates the ActionCOACH 12-Week sales and management programs. 

Some hobbies include playing Pickleball and Sheepshead, sewing, painting, traveling, and cheering on the Packers, Badgers, Bucks and  Brewers.
