Without CFO vision and operational expertise,

businesses hit a plateau. 

Without CFO vision and operational expertise, businesses hit a plateau. 

The following two statements are true in many companies.   

 

They are especially true in the landscaping industry: 

 

  • You cannot grow your way into greater profitability.  
  • Complexity of operations grows faster than revenue.  

 

Complexity without good processes and systems usually means a lower profit margin and an unpleasant life for the owner. Growing past a certain annual revenue requires operational and financial expertise. Without strategy, progress stalls.  

 

At this point, the owner gets stuck. 

 

They start feeling like the business owns them, not the other way around. 

Greg Herring is the founder and CEO of The Herring Group.  

 

Greg has served as a CFO of both public and private companies and has significant experience in the landscape industry.  

 

Working as part contractor (doing some work), part consultant (bringing CFO expertise), and part coach (encouraging results), The Herring Group serves landscape business owners challenged by growth.  

 

Using our proprietary Path to 12%, we install financial dashboards and operating systems that provide more profit margin for companies and more life margin for owners. 

 

That means less stress and more profit.

Working with The Herring Group has brought tranquility and peace of mind to my business. Greg has provided a sense of calm and direction to my team, as well as a better understanding of processes and procedures.

I also appreciate his factual approach to doing business, as it has helped me focus in an impartial way. His deep understanding of how operations are connected to the business side brings a unique perspective to what he does. He relates to the challenges between operational and business processes, and is able to leave emotion out of the equation.
