In need of a sound investment? For generations many Americans have turned to coins made of gold or silver. Provided the distributor is backed by a government guarantee, like U.S. Money Reserve, it’s a reliable way to secure your money.
CEO Angela Koch has seen more than half a million transactions rely on that security, but such a volume was only possible because of the workforce she invested into.
Talking about her employees, Koch wants them to individualize their role within the company, to see themselves as more than just sales people and truly command the space they operate in. This means trusting them enough to take a step back and let them decide how to move forward on a transaction. It’s a decision that has benefited the company.
Prior to heading the U.S. Money Reserve, Koch was a college dropout with a baby on the way. Her husband had set his eyes on a professional golfing career soon after, leaving her to be the provider for their little family. With all the responsibilities that come with being a working mother, she was unsure of how to find a career that appealed to her.
Koch was eager to take on several jobs at once. She invested a great deal of time collecting all information she could find about each role, then proceeded to become an expert in that position. By mastering her limited roles, she sought to advance her career to the next logical rung. But her many jobs provided nowhere to go. She was out of options, and her future didn’t seem so promising.
Through many jobs, Koch found herself working in meteorology, running computational analytics. That only set her up to work in business strategies and development. It’s a skill set that came in handy when her mentor, a Kobe beef rancher, asked her to acquire a certification for their hormone-free cattle.

Ranching wasn’t her first choice for a career change, but Koch assumed the same determined posture that got her through other jobs. Learning all she could about the ranching business, tailoring it to her style, and learning the personable skills to deal with clients and partners, convinced her she was ready to handle a company as an executive.
With the ranching business behind her, Koch worked for U.S. Money Reserve, and in shot order she jumped into the role of CEO. With years in her executive position, those working in marketing, sales, and the ERP system join together to foster a cohesive experience that brings them back to the business.
What is Koch’s next move? Expanding the company. Koch is looking to encourage her employees to be more confident with how they handle their daily responsibilities. This begins by helping them learn how to separate their work form their personal life, allowing the to shore up their strength and be willing to foster regular collaboration.
