$300MM National Specialty Construction Company (Private)
National firm with 6 regional offices hired FortéONE after losing money for the first time in 81 years. We assessed and implemented improvements throughout the firm, including operations, sourcing, engineering, finance, sales, project planning, construction crews, etc. Three years later the firm moved from break even to $23MM in annual profit.
$24MM Specialty Construction Company (Private Equity)
Specialty construction firm had lost confidence in their CEO, were considering selling to an industry competitor, and asked FortéONE to assume leadership. We stabilized the operations, assisted with sale preparation and strategy (accelerating the successful sale), and ran the firm while highly engineered custom projects were completed and/or transitioned to the new owners—all the while managing 170+ vendors, 20+ jobs, $ millions in overdue payables, and the expectations of both old and new owners.
$100MM National Electrical Contractor (Private)

We worked internally with his crews and managers, and implemented changes throughout the firm, including Project staffing and management, estimating, operations and a centralized purchasing process that together increased profits more than $3MM. Firm was successfully sold in 2016.
