What Clients Say…

Tom Northup’s track record speaks for itself:

We have a ‘let’s beat our best mentality’ and are positioned to make a major competitive impact as our market expands.”

“Today we are a healthy, growing company meeting our sales, cash flow and profitability objectives—leaving many competitors behind.”

Here is an example of the strong results I can help generate.  A few years ago I met the CEO of a company struggling to keep revenue steady and unable to make a sustainable profit. The CEO is a scientist who understood his limitations. He asked can you help me become an effective CEO and build my company?

He was a willing partner. In the first three years the company has tripled sales, become strongly profitable, has developed an outstanding management team and has a strong brand in its industry.

In the next three years the company has a strategic plan to again double sales expanding their presence in multiple areas. The CEO has realized his goals and has become an effective leader with the ability to lead the company to his vision.
