CB Bowman is best known for bringing clarity and accountability to the world of executive coaching. She founded two change-making organizations, the ACEC, Association of Corporate Executive Coaches™, dedicated to mastery level coaches who are working with the top tier of organizations and, the MEECO Leadership Institute™ that is a think tank/research group of international organizations focused on the future and measurement of employment sciences, executive coaching and culture in organizations, institutions, and agencies. The institute is also a certifying body.
CB’s work with ACEC has introduced rigorous credentialing to the corporate executive coaching ranks and has introduced metrics to underscore accountability. She is certified to serve on corporate boards, and her emphasis on pro bono work and continuing education shows her heart and her brain are aligned on this critical mission.
