After a successful career in Sales & Marketing, Ross – a third generation entrepreneur – took his own entrepreneurial leap of faith and started a ‘business coaching’ and consulting firm. Focusing on small to mid-size companies and process management, Ross helped dozens of small businesses simplify and improve their business process and achieve success.
For the past 23 years Ross has mostly been responsible for his own paycheck in various ownership and leadership roles. He has owned 4 businesses including the one he is in now. Prior to that, he and his wife invested, grew, and sold a fitness business. Looking back, he would say he learned the most from his failures.
As Ross was considering his next steps, he was introduced to the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS) from a colleague of his. As he began to study it, his passion for entrepreneurship became even stronger and clearer. He became naturally drawn to it because he saw it as a business where he could impact others nearly 100 percent of his time. Since then, being an EOS Implementer has allowed him to create tremendous value and make a difference. He loves what he does because he can take all of his past experiences and passion to help business owners, leaders, and entrepreneurs get what they want from their businesses.
Today Ross embraces the opportunity to help others achieve results through EOS because, not only has he been in the trenches and ‘in your shoes’, he knows what it takes to succeed and how to get you there. He also had a passion for hockey and recently retired as an NCAA hockey official. He officiated for 17 years and applies his experiences and learnings to his practice and coaching clients.
When Ross isn’t working with leadership teams, he stays physically active, enjoys the outdoors, and spending time with his wife and four children in Fort Myers, Florida.
Ross Gibbs is an excellent mentor, leader and coach. His insight into team building and inter-relationships has helped Kelly Roofing become one of the top 100 companies in America. As proof to his abilities, Ross helped Kelly Roofing triple in size immediately after Hurricane Irma destroyed Southwest Florida in September of 2017. With his coaching, Kelly Roofing was able to help over 26,000 building owners in just eight short months. I can’t say enough about Ross and would highly recommend him.

As a rapidly growing nonprofit with 70 staff and contractors in 39 states and four time zones, we needed a structure to allow us to maximize our impact and prepare us for the next phase of growth in our complex environment. In short, we needed an operating system that was entrepreneurial, fit the nonprofit context, and worked for our line of business. We made the decision to hire Ross and fully implement EOS. We have never looked back! EOS and Ross has given us organizational clarity!

Traction changed the way that we operate our business. After you read Traction and Get a Grip and you realize that this EOS is for you, give Ross a call. It’s not worth trying to self-implement. It will just slow you and your team down. Ross is a pure EOS Implementer. He helped us hyperdrive EOS into our business. I can’t thank him enough for how quickly he got us rolling on this revolutionary system. Thanks, Ross.
