We hired James to help us lay the foundation to our strategic plan. We were very pleased with the results of the one day session : James came very well prepared and was able to challenge us and "corral" us into making sure we came with concrete next steps and actions points and more importantly the outcome is a solid base to continue building our strategic plan.

“We retained James to assess a middle market branded food company.  James was prompt with a concise and insightful assessment of the brand and opportunities and concerns for future growth.  He was a pleasure to work with.” 

Jason Colfax, Colfax Creek Capital


 "After getting to the first $1M in annual sales, we realized it was going to take a very different approach to keep growing on our desired path. James helped us craft a strategic plan to reach our target exit revenues on a realistic timeline. I would encourage any entrepreneur in the food and beverage industries to tap his brain and shorten their learning curve."

As a family company that is heavy focused on large contract sales, James really opened my eyes to looking at our venture into name brand food from a different perspective. During our strategic planning session he helped to show the value of growing our brand from a grass roots level within individual metropolitan areas versus large sells to national accounts who demand a commodity price point.

James leads very well organized and effective strategy sessions for teams looking to get to the next level of growth. His recent help with one of our portfolio companies  added great clarity and focus to the team’s efforts at an important stage of the business.
