Our Services - PE Advisor LLC Capabilities

BUSINESS STRATEGY

Whether the challenge is transformational or turnaround usually the first priority is to THINK. We bring a simple, collaborative approach that consists of: current state assessment, envisioning differentiation and advantage and closing the gap. For example:

  • We facilitated off-site strategic planning workshops between Executive Team and Board of Directors resulting in a fully integrated CRM platform used in real estate, marketing and merchandising and a 150-basis point improvement in sales conversion.

Acquisitions are challenging from both a change management and synergy capture perspective. We have experience on both sides of the transaction and understand how to strategize, plan and lead these complex projects. For example:
