Organizations Must Adapt Quickly to Survive.
Just as we all pass through various stages of life, every company successful enough to survive must also change and adapt as it matures. Stokes Evans partners with executives and investors to understand and attack both the immediate and longer term challenges and opportunities present in a situation. The complexity and dynamic nature of today's business environment requires a flexible but rigorous approach to ensure that the specific goals of a client are balanced against market realities. We use structured analysis frameworks to quickly develop and communicate a clear picture of revenue, profitability, and sustainability gaps and priorities. We then transition directly to implementation of high impact customer, product, operational, financial, or strategic changes aimed at accelerating value creation. Our differentiation comes from our bias towards action supported by factual analysis, our experience as executives, and our knowledge and access to capital markets.

Changing Problems Require New Solutions.
Market challenges, money sources, organizational capability, and strategic focus all change as a company progresses from Stage 1 - Start Up through to Stage 6 - Exit. Every transition presents opportunity and introduces new risks. We have compiled a suite of services to help executives anticipate and manage changes through good planning, proven management best practices, clear goals and measures, proper financing, and leverage of highly skilled experts. Augmenting the specific market knowledge of a client with cutting edge business and financial thinking and experience allows mid-market companies to win against larger or more nimble global competitors.

 

Stokes Evans aligns our interests with the long term interests of clients to ensure that we understand and share "growing" pains and always look ahead while making the most of current opportunities. We also challenge our clients to avoid becoming complacent and to have a clear exit plan even when consumed by day to day activities. We also help clients successfully navigate the complex world of mergers and acquisitions to achieve their growth and exit objectives.

 

Stokes Evans ServicesOur Services Revolve Around Creating Customer and Company Value.
We find that many companies have become inwardly focused and distant from their customers and customer needs over time. A clear understanding of customers and their changing expectations is the foundation for making good business decisions that drive revenues, margins, defensible market share, and the availability of growth options.

Our proven methods help to pull all elements of value and growth together into a holistic solution. Our Executive Support, Sustainable Improvement, and Business Intelligence services all provide specialized surge capacity to fill out short-term requirements during a transition or transaction.
