Creating Value with Clarity, Confidence and Control.

Discover, unleash and protect the value of your company…now and into the future.

The Problem We’re Solving

Most CEOs of small-to-medium sized companies inadvertently keep the value of their companies below what it could be by not fully understanding how to use strategy, value building and financial management when making their decisions.

We solve that problem by helping CEOs unleash and protect the value of their companies through financial discipline and planning, building the right team by ensuring every level within the company is aligned around the same goals and direction, and by implementing results focused tactical plans.

Our approach

There are eight key areas that have been proven to affect a company’s value. We begin every engagement by establishing a score for these areas to create an overall baseline Value Quotient (VQ) for your company. The VQ serves as the launch point for a more well-informed plan that leverages the areas where your company scored the highest and addresses the areas that can be improved.
