California companies lead the world in terms of innovation and overall success. It is why California is the largest sub-national economy in the world. The Securieon Group is a business consulting and management advisory firm that specializes in developing and executing high performance growth strategies for California-based clients that exceed expectations for a state full of high achievers that depends on strong results.
We provide insightful tactics and execution for founders and/or investors in California who are experiencing a pivotal point in their company’s growth. Some clients need a fresh, unbiased perspective on strategic direction, while others require leadership alignment. Most of our California clients require sustainable and scalable revenue growth in a highly competitive industry and business climate. Executed successfully, our lead-by-example business consulting and management advisory services can result in expedited organic revenue growth, stronger competitive advantage and/or preparation for merger and/or acquisitions for privately held California businesses.
The path to predictable, scalable growth strategies and competitive advantage in fast-growing and aggressive industries like those in California rely on organizations thoroughly understanding customers, competitors and market trends before they become commonplace – and before the competition. Making sound decisions in uncertain, complex situations means the business consulting and management advisory partner you work with must be experts in your industry, experienced, and trustworthy: a partner like the Securieon Group. In an example akin to awakening a sleeping giant, the Securieon Group was engaged by a once-thriving California-based international food and beverage conglomerate due to its stellar reputation in the industry. After failing to produce results, they looked to us to solicit strategies for renewed growth. Our market trend analysis with subsequent growth strategy opportunities, cost reduction recommendations, and divestiture strategy/restructuring guidance resulted in a successful merger with a larger and highly strategic acquirer within nine months of being engaged.
If you need a thorough analysis of your financial and capital investment decisions, our corporate finance and strategic planning insights will provide your organization with valuable guidance in developing a high performance growth strategy. Securieon Group was engaged for a three-month, company-wide assessment of a leading Bay Area, California wholesale bakery and cafe being considered for a substantial business loan. When it became apparent that their strategic direction and financial prudence were, let’s say, half-baked, we capitalized on the biggest opportunities for sustainable growth and led a repositioning effort that resulted in a 20% increase in margins and a 15% increase in revenue.
When it comes to mergers and acquisitions (M&A) in California, there are numerous considerations to take into account, so partnering with a pre- and post-M&A integration and advisory company like the Securieon Group is crucial. Our highly strategic and sound approach prevents mistakes from disrupting the deal process, and our significant transaction expertise enables us to bring a formalized process to bear. We transfer our diverse industry knowledge and experience from deal to deal and implement best practices in both pre- and post-M&A planning and execution. As an example, when a Silicon Valley, California services provider was being considered by a private equity firm, Securieon Group discovered through an in-depth market analysis that a lack of established industry metrics and a significant weakness in talent were resulting in lackluster margins and profitability. Within 18 months, the Securieon Group established realistic industry KPIs and helped guide decisions on talent that ultimately led to a merger with a highly strategic acquirer; and we were retained on the Board of Directors.
California caliber, high performance starts with the CEO. A leader with passion and vision will drive the organization’s culture, successfully leading the team to embrace the same vision. Our team of business consulting and management advisory experts can help assess your company’s organizational leadership and provide a thorough growth strategy to transform your company’s culture into a consistently high performing operation. Example: a multi-million dollar, privately held company in California hemorrhaging cash in a once-profitable division engaged Securieon Group to conduct operational and organizational behavior analyses that revealed both a lack of control over inventories and a supplier, also resulting in an employee exodus. Our hands-on leadership training efforts, coupled with a course correction of operational efficiencies, resulted in ultimately winding down the unprofitable division to focus on the more profitable Light Detection and Ranging Technology for driverless cars division (LIDAR). A multi-million dollar investment from two US auto companies was secured, enabling the expansion of this much more lucrative market, which is especially popular in California.
You are about to experience a major pivot in your business – and your personal life. You may be needing to rethink the direction of your company during a crisis situation (especially today). Company restructuring in California occurs more often than business leaders like to admit. Much like retaining a therapist, privately held companies require an outside, objective advisor void of emotion, yet empathetic to a leadership team experiencing challenging times. Whatever your situation, Silicon Valley, California-based Securieon Group is a business consulting and management advisory firm with a proven history of successfully guiding privately held companies in California – and beyond – who are experiencing a business and potentially life altering pivot. Our lead by example approach provides drop-in leadership and/or management resources who work with founders, executives, family members and/or investors to shepherd you through scaling your business for higher performance, higher valuations, or when necessary, a successful exit.
