What Our Clients Say…

Testimonials from current and past clients say more about the value of our services than anything we could write ourselves. Here are just a few examples:


 
Leading a business often requires a trusted external resource to help cut through the clutter and get to the heart of an issue. Bill has served as that resource for me for over 10 years, listening carefully, and helping me to explore alternatives and to develop go-forward strategies. I have no hesitation in recommending him to others.
— Peter Butler, President, Hayes Management Consulting
 
 
Bill’s not afraid to ask the tough questions and dig into my answers so that I can make sound decisions based on a thorough evaluation. I have worked with many advisors over the past 20 years, but I have continuously kept Bill at my side.
— Gian Luca Fiori, President, Marble & Granite
 
Bill is always the voice of reason, close enough to understand the complexities of my business but sufficiently removed to provide a different perspective and to serve as an effective sounding board in a crisis.
