“After twenty five successful years in business, we thought we were recession proof. The fall of 2008 taught us how terribly wrong we were, we lost 40% of our business almost overnight. With the thought of bankruptcy, we hired an attorney who in turn recommended Bob Baber as a consultant. At first we were skeptical, who could know our business better than us? Bob worked with us on our books, showing us where the money was going and maybe where it should not. He helped put us on track with foreseeing problems that could arise in the future. We continue to work with Bob and will be ever grateful for his knowledge and friendly assistance. Thanks in part to Bob, hopefully we will have another twenty-five successful years!
Thomas C. and Valerie M. Nelson
“Bob Baber has been of great assistance in helping us evaluate and align our compensation structure. His guidance in factoring in the essential criteria has enabled us to remain competitive for the types of talented people that our business requires.
From the very outset, Bob has shown a keen grasp for the disparate components of our product and services mix and has helped us balance the requirements of each of them. I would recommend Bob to any company seeking to improve their financial and operational efficiency.”
Sonny Hines, Chairman
“Bob is my go-to guy when I have a client who doesn’t know whether he is making any money in the business, doesn’t know where the cash is going (or coming from), and doesn’t know whether to shut the business down or look for a way to restructure the debt.
Bob has developed some templates, etc. that allow him to efficiently input data from the client and use the resulting spreadsheets to show the client (and often the bank) what is going on in the business. He has also earned the respect of a number of bankers, who know that he is a straight shooter.
Bob is a person you should know. Your business lawyer partners should know him. Your banker buddies should know him. Your accountant friends should know him. If you ever have business clients who are wandering in the financial darkness, I encourage you to give Bob a call and arrange a lunch. You’ll be glad you did.”
Rayford K. (Trip) Adams III
“I met with Bob with the intention of getting some ideas on helping cash flow. I received so much more. Bob’s years of experience, listening skills and ability to ask the right questions helped me design a plan that has grown my company more than ever expected in a short period of time.
Bob is a delight to work with - it does not matter if you are struggling or a success. Get to Bob before your competitors do!”
Owner, Website Development Company
“In my experience, Bob’s clients have benefited from the type of proactive financial insight that you would expect from a first-rate internal CFO. This extends from cash flow management and operational effectiveness, to getting the right personnel in the right positions. Bob is a valuable resource to his clients.”
R. Milton Howell, III, CPA, CSEP, Partner
“Bob Baber was brought into an old, troubled and complex international family business to help us improve the financial worth of the company. After 1˝ years of hard work and dedication, financial indicators pointed to a new and more profitable future. This turnaround could not have been accomplished without Bob’s skill, insight and effort. He not only became part of our management team, but he also became a part of our extended family.”
Owner, Manufacturing Company
“Over four years ago, I began discussions with a very important client who indicated a desire
to buy part of my business. Several years earlier, I had invited Bob Baber into our organization,
once for cash flow analysis work and another time to evaluate our management structure.
He had proven his ability to look at business issues with exceptionally good judgment and
develop actionable recommendations, so I brought him into the
Four years later, my former client (and current partner) and I have both benefited significantly from this new relationship. Bob was able to get all the issues out on the table in a manner that generated a high level of confidence in all parties that a fair agreement would result. Without his timely, well-articulated input during the negotiation process, things would not likely have progressed as smoothly as they did. I would recommend him, without hesitation, in any sensitive business negotiation or discussion.”
“The respect of those you respect is worth more than the applause of the multitude.”
