Chip Gallent
Certified Petra Coach

Chip Gallent’s coaching philosophy can be summed up in a single phrase: You must behave like the company you want to become, long before something like your revenue says you are that company. In other words, if a $25 million company wants to get to $50 million, they have to start acting like a $50 million company now. Chip finds this a common roadblock in the organizations that he works with: they are behaving exactly like the results they are getting, and that’s why they aren’t growing or evolving ­– yet…

Earning his Scaling Up Coaching certification in 2018, Chip has been coaching with Petra for nearly five years. During this time, he has positively impacted many different companies in various industries. In fact, over the course of 2022, Chip’s member roster’s combined revenues exceeded $1.5 billion.

Prior to Petra, Chip held multiple C-level positions across wide variety of verticals. In one of these roles, Chip helped lead a complete overhaul of an organization’s corporate culture, resulting in the company being named “Best Place to Work” by the Nashville Business Journal in 2016 and 2017 and a “Top Workplace” by the Tennessean in 2017.

Outside of work, he can be found underwater enjoying his favorite activity (SCUBA diving) or on stage playing lead guitar. A native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Chip has called Nashville home since 1993.
