Here at ELO, we offer business counsel to help your business navigate difficult issues so that you may thrive as a company. On this page, you can find information about our three business consultancy services: transition, governance, and strategy.  




Transition section

Transitioning a business from one set of owners to another, whether family or not, is a complicated process. What made the business successful? How do you transfer knowledge, expertise and relationships? The incoming set of owners needs to be adequately equipped for success, and this can take time. They need to have the proper training and gain industry knowledge. We look at ways to maintain an entrepreneurial culture and continue to innovate.

Governance section


Proper governance is the infrastructure of a company. In order for a company to build a foundation for success, it needs to have a sound foundation. This includes a dynamic and effective organization chart that clearly delineates job title, job description, reporting, accountability, incentives. With these things made clear, the organization is able to function well.
