Joe Casey is an Executive Coach and Retirement Coach who brings extensive experience navigating transitions from his coaching work with clients and from his own life and career. After a 26-year career in Human Resources with Merrill Lynch, Joe shifted gears and retired early at age 52 to become an executive coach. His executive coaching practice has been named as one of the Top 10 Leadership Development Consulting Companies for 2019 by HR Tech Outlook magazine.

In college, he was a cartoonist for the daily newspaper and brings visual problem-solving skills – and humor – to his coaching.
Joe earned his coaching certification from Columbia University and is a Certified Retirement Coach through Retirement Options. In addition Joe is also a Certified Designing Your Life Coach, through Bill Burnett and Dave Evans, authors of the book Designing Your Life.
Joe lives with his wife Pat, their four children and three dogs in New Jersey. He is an avid sports fan and marathon runner, who suffered a career-ending injury in his 13th marathon, but continues to run indoors.
