Angela Koch is the only CEO in the precious metals industry who is a woman, a role she accepts as both unique and vitally important. In her post as head of the U.S. Money Reserve, she both oversees and the sets the pace of what is one of the largest private distributors of silver, gold and platinum coins issued by the U.S. government.
The seriousness of her role is reflected by the way Koch cares for her employees. She follows the philosophy that workers can be given the opportunity both grow and actively participate in the company, creating an environment that will be healthy for everyone.
This also means having enough confidence in employees to let them make decisions on their own.
The journey of Koch to the top of the U.S. Money Reserve was in itself unconventional. After dropping out of college and starting a family, she found herself in the role of helping her husband, then a would-be professional golfer, pay the household bills.
This involved working at two or three jobs at a time in various capacities and at companies that were both large and small. Despite her Christian faith, she even worked once at a Jewish Foundation. One thing she did notice was that she was good in whatever work she did, this despite lacking a college degree.
In her work at KLA-Tencor, she gained experience in strategic business planning. In her work on a ranch, she helped establish procedures that could benefit others in the agricultural industry. Read more: US Money Reserve | BBB and US Money Reserve | Glassdoor
It was after her departure from her ranch duties that she arrived at the U.S. Money Reserve, where she helped develop a system that integrated sales with marketing. She also developed a devotion to customer service, which would ultimately pave her way to her current CEO post.
Koch is still dedicated to expanding the company, using certain principles to achieve her goals. She firmly believes in making decisions and not looking back after a decision has been made.
She also believes in living in such a way so to balance her professional and personal objectives. Koch emphasizes that others should always recognize their strengths and utilize them as much as possible in order to achieve success.
