Two years ago we were ready to take our firm to the next level, so we hired Gary Takacs and CEOU. Gary came to us with vision, strategic planning ideas and the know-how to help us follow through. He brought a fresh, new perspective where we had settled on our limited view. He brought innovative suggestions where we had come to accept the status quo. He encouraged us to get outside our comfort zone in networking, technology and service areas. Gary’s gentle persuasion and clear direction are a great combination for strengthening our firm, building our business, and servicing our client base. We have had great success in setting and reaching our goals with CEOU
