Trisha D. Scudder is a pioneer in the field of executive coaching and has been called one of the country’s “leading executive coaches -- the CEO’s secret weapon.” Over 25 years ago she began studying organizational transformation and leadership, leading her to found Executive Coaching Group, Inc., in New York in 1987.   

Executive Coaching Group specializes in working with corporate management, entrepreneurs, marketing agencies and Wall Street firms. Whether coaching an individual executive, a management team or marketing team, ECG’s approach has a transforming impact on performance and produces significant business results. 

Over the years Trisha’s work has proven ECG’s motto: When leaders grow, companies grow.  

In January 2020 Trisha reduced the number of clients she coaches and turned over ownership and management of ECG to her business partner of 12 years, Herma M. Schmitz.

Trisha has been privileged to coach more than 750 senior executives including CEOs, Presidents, Managing Directors, COOs, CFOs, EVPs, SVPs, Creative Directors and Chief Marketing Officers, supporting them to be creative thinkers, motivating managers and extraordinary leaders.
