The Herring Group works with business owners and managers who lead growing companies with revenue of $3 million to $50 million. We use our proprietary process, The Path to 12%, to increase our clients’ net profit margins. Our process also improves the life margin of the owners – a welcome change. Our clients see tremendous value in our services and tell their friends.
Because our approach to serving clients is new and evolving and because the business is growing quickly, we have the feel of a start-up. Using your controller or CFO skills, you will implement and customize The Path to 12% with clients.
Because these clients typically need strong financial talent, you can expect to have a long-term relationship with these owners and managers. You will become their “go-to” person for matters relating to business strategy, finance and accounting without leaving the comfort of your home office.
Using the Path to 12% and your skills, you will play three roles: consultant (bringing leadership and expertise to the clients), contractor (doing some work for the clients), and coach (encouraging people to achieve their goals). We call this position a Client Success Manager because our focus is helping our clients succeed for the long term.
Of note, back in December of 2018, we started with one Client Success Manager. We now have six with plans to hire a few more each year.
Sound too good to be true?
It would have been 10 years ago.
The Herring Group uses GoToMeeting and the latest cloud-based software to serve clients all over the country without travel. We do it well. Our clients love us and stay around for a long time – the ultimate compliment.
With our approach, you will have significant schedule flexibility and can work from home.
Because of our growth, you can work either part-time (20-30 hours per week) or full-time.
At The Herring Group, we work in a collaborative, team environment. We work together to identify opportunities, solve problems and celebrate client accomplishments.
This type of arrangement is not for everyone. Some people will miss the camaraderie of an office environment. Some people will not like juggling multiple clients. But you may not be like some people; if it sounds interesting to you, let’s talk.
