Professionals & Principal

Leading Professionals

In the end projects and work always comes down to people. It is our greatest resource.

We have a small group of business professionals and consultants who are dedicated to our client’s success – not only ours. Unlike many professional firms – we don’t have juniors working on projects once they start. We don’t have analysts and report writers trying to be corporate advisors.

Richard W. Evans actually works on all of the Company’s reports and projects with assistance from up to five analysts and consultants who provide support.  At the same time, we are a “fixed fee” driven assurance and advisory business – where clients have cost certainty.

We want to assist clients that we believe we can really help.  We can provide more details as to our staff, associates and advisors upon request.  So whether your needs are assurance related (e.g., valuation) or advisory (e.g., strategic M&A)   please consider us as we believe that we can strategically and tactically help you and your firm. We believe you have come to the right place for insightful, expert assistance and services with a focus on “helping you”.
