After eighteen years of work in large, professional-services firms, I founded my own practice in 2004. My vision was to operate as a solo practitioner; an artisan practice where I could pursue my profession as a craft.
An Exclusive Focus on the Restaurant Industry
Industry focus is a strategic cornerstone of my practice, and the basis on which I strive to provide value-added services to my clients. Focus yields a deep understanding of the economic and financial factors that drive the value of a restaurant business, access to a national network of industry contacts and resources, and the ability to expand analytics beyond the theoretical models by contributing industry knowledge, insights and anecdotes.
A Personal Commitment to Client-Service Excellence
As my vision was to operate as a solo practitioner, founding my practice also represented a commitment of my personal professional focus. It afforded me the opportunity to serve clients directly, and afforded my clients the focused attention of a senior professional.
An Independent Practitioner Offering an Objective Perspective
As an independent practitioner, I can offer clients an objective perspective. Avoiding potential conflicts of interest by not providing legal, auditing, brokerage, or investment banking services; and relatively free of the client conflicts that can frequently present challenges in the retention of larger firms.
A Unique Proposition: Enhanced Service and a Great Value
I offer a unique value proposition to my clients. Industry focus enhances efficiency in addition to effectiveness, as each new engagement builds on a substantial foundation of prior work and experience. And, by operating as a solo practitioner, I avoid the infrastructure and overhead costs of larger firms. This allows me to offer clients both an enhanced level of service and a great value.
