-- ALBANY—May 24, 2012—Mike Cronin, US Army Veteran and owner of Gettysburg Flag Works was able to pull his business out of the economic slump due to consultation from The Alternative Board (TAB), an organization that provides advisory boards and coaching services for business owners, CEOs and presidents worldwide.
TAB is a membership-based organization focused on business transformation. Through a combination of advisory board meetings, executive business coaching and proprietary tools, members benefit from each others expertise in a confidential setting designed to develop a real strategic business advantage. Their expertise areas include everything from strategic business growth through increased profits to providing tools for recruiting and resolving employee issues.
Gettysburg Flag Works, specializing in standard and custom flags, experienced a slump during the 2008-2010 recession, leaving Cronin in a stagnant state of mind. Seeking help, Cronin found Al Bellenchia, the local TAB franchisee. Bellenchia assisted Cronin by utilizing TAB's proprietary TAB Business Vantage® business assessment tool. Combined with individualized consulting, Cronin was able to execute a structured marketing plan and use the tactics he learned to hire and retain employees who would seamlessly interlace into his business to help it grow.
Thanks to the consulting that TAB provided, Cronin’s business grew 8% in 2011 and is already up 16% in 2012. “I was working on the business and was unaware of my blind spots. TAB opened my eyes to the possibilities of my company and gave me the tools to implement them,” said Cronin.
Around the world, TAB helps business owners like Cronin succeed. For veterans starting or growing a business this support can be invaluable in succeeding post military.
