Our Team

The Legαcy Alpha program is a unique service that helps any business leverage the skills and abilities of its key employees, professional services and its position in the marketplace to turn the business into a financial asset and ultimately achieve everlasting business performance. All success and failure in business happens for a reason. We identify the reason or reasons for both and determine the historical, short and long term impact of the defined problems. Understanding that no person in any business will live forever, we develop a plan for the business that focuses on functions and processes designed to achieve maximum owner return and a controllable business value. Our Senior Executives work on-site at client locations as long and as frequently as needed to turn the business into a self-sustainable financial asset with a defined and marketable value. Every business has a story and every story is different. We have heard hundreds of business stories, but the one we are most interested in is yours, from start-up to generational transition and every stage in between.
