For 20 years, Randy Hall has worked for and with organizations to help them realize more of their potential. In 2009, he left corporate America to start his own company, 4th Gear Consulting, with the mission of guiding leaders as they learn how to lead fully accountable and engaged teams. If leaders can switch from the old-school authoritarian view of management to leadership that fosters employee’s commitment, businesses set themselves up for incredible, sustainable success.
In almost a decade of independently coaching organizations, Randy realized that his veterinary clients had challenges and frustrations that were unique to the profession, but fixable with the proper tools and strategies. In 2018, he launched what would become VetLead, empowering veterinary professionals to transform their practice in ways they never thought possible and forever changing the future of veterinary medicine.
Support veterinary practice owners and managers with strategies and resources to cultivate a thriving practice culture, lead a fully engaged team, select and develop great talent, and create the kind of lasting change they want for their practice.
