Cole Advisors Consulting Services

We don’t show up with prefabricated assumptions. We listen. We learn. Only then are we in a position to well advise. Our business turnaround and management clients need more than “bookend consulting” – providing a roadmap before a journey or evaluating results after the fact. We help clients connect the dots with a integrated and holistic plan. We then help execute on that plan.

As trusted business advisors, we influence strategy, drive solutions and work with our clients’ staff to effect positive business results. When clients are struggling, we’re also burning the midnight oil to find and implement a business turnaround and management solution – as a “fractional business partner.”

Some of our consulting clients need help because they have been underperforming versus the expectations of the owners, leadership team, bank, investors or customers. They often have experienced leadership teams who either struggle due to skill-based gaps or a lack of well defined Strategies, Solutions and Results.

Other clients only need a push in the right direction to continue on the path to success. We are able to provide the necessary experience to know how to handle each individual situation.

We are based in St. Louis, Missouri but our customers are located throughout the country, including, New York, Massachusetts, Maine, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Indiana, Missouri, Illinois, Kansas, Colorado and Utah, among others.

Schedule a call today and lets get started making positive changes in your business.
