Core values, principles & methods

Lead with Discovery Assessments
The PBS team believes in starting engagements with discovery assessments to understand our CEO client’s business’ situation -- their pains and their opportunities and determine Recommended Actions.

Be Trusted and Active
We strive to have our clients see us as active trusted advisors helping them improve their operations, hire critical talent, grow profits and achieve their goals.

Deliver Value
We are committed to working to deliver real client-focused value directly to our CEO clients.

Be Valued
Our clients value the pivotal operations and recruiting results we deliver for them.

The typical client

CEOs of private companies, owners of family businesses and high-growth founders past seed funding. PBS helps CEOs without COOs that run companies as new as two years old up to 130 year old generational businesses. They often have 5 to 75 employees and revenue anywhere from $1 million
- $50 million.

Clients have turned to us when their success had outstripped the operations they had built, when they needed to turn around a decades old family business, when they were in a high-growth spot and needed to bring on the right talent but didn't have the time or expertise and when they weren't ready yet for a full time COO but wanted ongoing part-time COO services to help grow profits.

Our client CEOs place mutual trust in our team and this is why nearly 9 in 10 of our clients are referrals from other clients or professional service providers who know our value so well.
