Alpharetta, GA – August 14th, 2009 - Contractors Consulting Group announced today the formation of Three Point Group (3PG), lead by partners Jeff Harkness, Jay Prange, Kevin Kehoe and Frank Ross. Three Point Group (3PG) will be headquartered in Alpharetta, GA and will have additional offices in Chicago, IL and Laguna Niguel, CA. The company provides strategic growth, business management and exit strategy services to middle market business owners and their
Jeff Harkness, Managing Partner of 3PG, explains the dynamics of the new venture. “The team is excited about expanding our business model. Now more than ever we can service clients on a national and international basis providing a one stop shop solution for advice on growing smarter, increasing profits, and executing an exit strategy. Three Point Group will combine the synergies between several practices that, while already successful, will now leverage individual strengths to build a national network with which our clients can partner.”
Kevin Kehoe has authored several books written specifically for business owners, including “Meetings That Work”, “Enhancing Leadership Impact”, “The Selling Advantage”, “How to Build A Five Year Plan”, and “The Little Red Book of Sales and Customer Service”. “Together, we will be able to utilize our management and industry experience to build better companies, accelerate organic growth, buy-out competitors, and incubate and position companies for a planned and orderly exit when the timing is right.”
The current recession, credit crunch, and competitive pricing pressures have increased the demand for 3PG’s services. Jay Prange, whose background combines expertise in operational finance and accounting, explains that “We’re receiving calls every day from business owners who did well several years ago, but are not sure how to react to the new market we live in today. The reaction is to lower prices, but if you’re not able to gauge internal financial performance at those lower prices, you may be pricing yourself out of business. Our goal is to educate businesses about operational and financial performance metrics so that they can strengthen their business now and take market share as the economy expands.”
Frank Ross, one of the country’s most highly regarded consultants, has more than thirty-five years of hands-on experience with hundreds of the most successful companies in the country. He has helped lead many of these companies through some of the most difficult times in the past few decades. Frank explains it well: “We help our clients manage their cash flow and budgets then adjust their pricing strategies as part of a plan. This allows the client to keep the customers they have, plus win more jobs. This is essential for survival in an economic contraction. We take our clients through a complete planning and execution process. This combination of strategic planning, strong cash flow and better management will not only command higher values when the owners decide to exit, but provides peace of mind while pushing through this down cycle.”
