Why Angela Koch, CEO at U.S. Money Reserve, Loves Her Role
The following is an article submitted by the US Money Reserve - widely known as America's precious metals distributor.
Stepping up and being a leader isn’t for all of us. In fact, a fraction of one percent of individuals living in the United States are CEOs, with only 8% of Fortune 100 CEOs being female. The highly coveted role within an organization isn’t for the faint of heart, something that Angela Koch, CEO at U.S. Money Reserve, knows all too well.
Thrive Global, a website publication focused on offering companies and individuals “science-based solutions to enhance well-being, performance, and purpose, and create a healthier relationship with technology” recently met with Koch to uncover an inside look into not only being a CEO but, being a CEO of one of the nation's largest private distributors of U.S. government-issued gold, silver, and platinum products.
In the interview, Koch shared three key insights into why she loves being a CEO - and why she finds her role one of the most rewarding things she’s ever done.
1. She is empowered to help her employees and customers live better, more financially secure lives
Koch makes it a policy to treat her employees as family, celebrating the wins and challenges as a team. “To create a successful corporate culture,” she says, “it’s crucial to treat your employees like family”. Living and breathing the corporate culture is essential to successful leadership.
Beyond this, Koch is proud of her ability to help customers protect their wealth. Finance is at the core of everything we do, each and every day, which means it’s integral to our overall well-being.
2. She can help impact nonprofit organizations
As CEO, Koch has the ability to make decisions as to which organizations the company can partner with. Particularly, Koch supports Meals on Wheels, Ronald McDonald House, the Boy and Girl Scouts of America and the American Red Cross. Giving back to the community is essential to building company and local culture.
3. She can change the negative stigma around the “CEO role”
In her interview, Koch shared the negative stigma and stereotypes around being a CEO - long hours, hard work and instability in the corner office role. Instead, Koch encourages her colleagues to think differently, and look at the many positive aspects of occupying the top spot at the U.S. Money Reserve. She is proud to have the freedom to support causes that she loves, while impacting corporate culture and employee happiness.
There’s no doubt that Koch is a hard-working, focused individual who resides as CEO of one of the nation's largest private distributors of U.S. government-issued gold, silver, and platinum products. There is also no doubt that the U.S. Money Reserve makes a great impact in culture and causes that impact organizations such as the aforementioned American Red Cross.
