About Us

Jeff Koeppel

Koeppel Associates, LLC was founded in 2013 by Jeff Koeppel, its President. The firm is a boutique executive coaching and consulting firm working with global clients in diverse industries, geographies and functions. Jeff’s 30-year track record of success in organizations includes corporate executive HR roles in medical technology, (Becton Dickinson), energy (Public Service Enterprise Group) and financial services (AXA Equitable).

Jeff also served as an Organization Effectiveness Leader in the strategy consulting practice of Coopers & Lybrand (now PwC). His key roles have been “business-facing” and he combines a unique blend of strategic insight and operational know-how. Jeff has coached and consulted with hundreds of executives on leadership effectiveness and style over the years. Typical clients include senior general managers and candidates; newly appointed leaders; high potential associates at any level; and key leaders with “blind spots.”

As a coach, Jeff is passionate about enabling the growth and development of clients. Their consistent feedback emphasizes his curiosity, “presence” that creates trust – and the capacity to listen, question and courageously challenge assumptions and beliefs. Jeff has served as an Executive Advisory Board Member for the Academy of Management and chaired the Conference Board Council on Development, Education & Training.

Currently, through an Agreement with Heidrick & Struggles he mentors candidates from business, government and nonprofit sectors who are pursuing their own professional certification as coaches. Jeff is an adjunct faculty member of the Rutgers Business School and a mentor in their undergraduate and MBA programs. He also supports Seton Hall University’s national award-winning Buccino Leadership Institute as an executive coach.

Jeff holds an MA, Human Relations & Social Policy from New York University and a BA from Queens College (CUNY) in Industrial Psychology. He completed a sponsored Leadership Development program at the Harvard Business School. Jeff has designed and trained corporate executives and public officials in several Advanced Leadership programs around the world.
