"We engaged Lauren during internal conflict threatening the family business. As CFO, I speak with first-hand knowledge of the tremendous results she achieved. Lauren's success is a testament to her expertise and commitment to helping clients achieve their objectives."  —  Frank Barker


Family businesses are complex entities. Their members are often faced with a range of challenges, with the consequences of failure being not only the loss of the business, but also the potential deterioration or loss of family relationships.
