He has the distinction of having held the titles of chief executive officer, chief financial officer, chief operating officer and chief administrative officer in four of the top 25 public relations agencies.
In addition, he has provided strategic counsel to many of the most successful small and mid-sized professional service organizations over the past 17 years. This background allows him to quickly identify core issues and provide custom solutions that will yield permanent, long-term results.
At Second Quadrant Solutions Inc. we understand the challenges managers face and how difficult it is to look beyond the day-to-day demands of running a group, department or business; to do more than just focus on “putting out the fires.” We work directly with top management to identify and address the critical issues that will allow the company to move to the next level.
Although every problem requires a custom solution, our consulting services typically fall into two broad categories: management and financial. We help senior management address manifold business challenges including hiring and inspiring employees; dealing with difficult personnel and client issues; creating effective compensation programs; and preparing the agency for sale.
On the financial front, we help a firm fine-tune and streamline existing processes as well as develop new methods for managing finances and improving the company’s profit performance. With our assistance, many of our clients have experienced dramatic financial improvement.
