Founder & Ceo

More Than Just a Leader

Ed is a coach down to the very smallest molecule of his DNA. Whether he’s a husband and father at home or working with a client in the business world, he is an energized, passionate, and near-obsessive coach who is fully invested in showing up with all he’s got to help you show up with all you’ve got.

His approach is one that insists on presence. He knows no other way to catalyze change except by getting on the court with you, playing side-by-side, and encouraging you to keep pushing, especially when the going gets tough.

From the floor to the White board

A college athlete, NCAA basketball coach, corporate executive, and entrepreneur, Ed Molitor has experienced the potential and pitfalls of leadership at every level.

As the founder and CEO of The Molitor Group, today Ed guides emerging and established leaders across biopharma, biotech and medical devices to apply the proven lessons of coaching in their pursuit of inspiring and driving their team’s performance.

Teaching by Example

Through personalized training, workshops, keynote speeches, his writing, and as a podcast host, Ed seeks to empower individuals and their organizations to achieve victory through a focus on transformation, fundamentals, compassion, mental toughness, and vision.


"Do the best you can with what you have to
become the best you are capable of becoming."
