At Brighton Windsor Group, we strive to provide services that allow business owners to shift their focus to the business issues that give them a competitive edge.
It’s what we do!
The Challenge: A large commercial tenant improvement contractor, our client realized the need to develop a functional organizational structure in order to maximize efficiency and employee productivity. Although a very loyal employee group with many years of service, promotions were based predominately on tenure rather than pre-established metrics or job function requirements. Most all financial, sales and operational decisions landed on ownership?s desk; there was limited delegation of responsibility.
Making Retirement a Reality
The Challenge: Our client, a 3rd generation metal fabrication shop, has had a succession of dramatic net loss years for a company which should be very solid. Those losses pre-date the economic downturn. Our initial assessment indicated a severe cash drain which, if not addressed quickly, would be difficult to sustain operations. Our client?s goal to develop an exit strategy for the eventual sale of the business would not be possible until the company is placed on a sound and consistent financial footing.
Financial Controls…Peace of Mind
The Challenge: A long time established 2nd generation manufacturer had experienced sales decline and eroding margins over the past decade. The primary challenge was in the area of pricing structure and cost controls, with remediation also necessary in the areas of strategic planning, sales and marketing, and to some degree, organizational development pursuant to the objectives of a strategic plan and effective analysis of business development initiatives.
The Challenge: Our clients had experienced 128% growth over a three year period. While growth opportunities existed from increasing appeal of green business practices, the growth occurred without the necessary financial controls in place, making cash flow unpredictable and not affording ownership a reasonable return on investment. As the company?s revenues grew, so too had the costs of inefficiencies and random decision making.
