About Hank Tate

In my early career as the Vice President of a real estate development company, I earned the title “The RIGHT HAND MAN” for my pivotal role in building the business. With over forty years of executive experience, I’ve provided coaching and support to fellow executives dedicated to enhancing their success, often being referred to as their “RIGHT HAND MAN”.
My expertise includes creative problem solving, strategic business planning, operations optimization, growth strategies, IT implementation and management, and building systems that enhance customer relations. Because of attention to the details of how to build businesses some I’ve worked with have called me a “Vision Engineer.” Employing a comprehensive approach, I aim for both immediate and sustained success in the dynamic business landscape.
