Golden Career Strategies Acquired by Ask and Receive Coaching President Stacey Bevill

Stacey BevillStacey Bevill, Founder and President of Upstate-based Ask and Receive Coaching, recently acquired the long-standing coaching and consulting firm, Golden Career Strategies. Golden Career Strategies (GCS) was founded in 2002 by Myles Golden, who passed in 2017.

Golden Career Strategies helps organizations maximize their employees' effectiveness and potential by providing innovative organizational and leadership development and outplacement services. For individuals, GCS offers many tailored services of support and direction for discovering a rewarding career; these clients include executives in transition, recent college graduates, those seeking encore careers, and entrepreneurs. GCS’s popular “Monday Morning Roundtables” will resume on Monday, October 5, 2020, at 9:00 a.m. via Zoom.

Bevill purchased the company from Steve Olson, the second owner and a Greenville-based executive and career strategist. Olson will stay on as a senior consultant and coach. “I am proud to pass along GCS to Stacey Bevill, who I know has the experience, the credentials, the drive and the same high regard for service,” said Olson.

Ann Golden, former president of GCS and widow of founder Myles Golden, stated, “Stacey has worked with Golden Career Strategies as a collaborative partner for fifteen years. She has the necessary experience, credentials, and emulates the standard of excellence and the desire to serve through GSC that started with Myles and continued under Steve’s ownership. I am pleased that the essential services provided by GCS will continue under Stacey’s leadership.”

Many in the community have strong ties to Golden Career Strategies. Dr. Dee Kivett, CEO of NextGen Supply Chain Integrators – deemed one of South Carolina’s 25 Fastest-Growing Companies, noted, “Golden Career Strategies helped my husband and me transform our career path as a family, not just as individuals. By helping us take a strategic look at our goals in life, not just what our ‘next jobs’ would be, we both found better fulfillment in our careers, became more engaged in our community, and reached a great balance to allow us to enjoy life! I cannot think of a more qualified person than Stacey Bevill to take over the leadership of this fantastic organization. She is the most credentialed and most qualified coach in the Upstate.”

Bevill enthusiastically added, “I am very excited about the opportunity to continue Golden Career Strategies’ tradition of excellence. The career related services provided by GCS are a perfect complement to the non-career related coaching and consulting we will continue to provide via Ask and Receive Coaching.”

Bevill has more than 20 years of business and marketing experience and has master’s level certifications in coaching, marketing strategies, entrepreneurship, project management, and quality. Through Ask and Receive Coaching (a division of Ask and Receive, Inc.), Bevill and team have offered various services designed for organizations and individuals, including coaching, business and marketing consulting, and customized workshops.
