How I help . . .

I help clients quantify and communicate their business’s story in a consistent language via financial statements and key measurement metrics. I help owners and operators understand the measurement criteria many creditors, insurers and outside investors use to analyze them.

As an advisor, I see the business through the eyes of the owner and help them plan and put in place strategies they can use to operate and grow the business.

“I am a hardworking business enthusiast. I am genuinely interested in helping clients solve problems and make their work more rewarding.”

Q&A with Curtis

What does above + beyond mean to you?
It means putting in the work to help clients take their next steps and exceed expectations. It means being a trusted advisor who understands your goals and interests and makes them their priority.
What are some of your favorite things?
I’m an avid golfer and I love going to a good steakhouse when I go out to eat. I like reading biographies of presidents and other famous or influential people. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family – they always inspire me to be my best.
What activity plays an important part in your life?
Family and religion.
What is your favorite/least favorite word and why?
My least favorite phrase is "I do not have time." Everyone has the same amount of time and we all have to learn how to prioritize and make the best of it.
What is your family like and what are some things you like to do together?
My wife and I have two daughters and we all love going on vacations together because we get to spend time with each other without distractions.
