About 2020 Vision Strategic Advisory Group
2020 Vision is a strategic advisory company, founded in 2008, that provides executive consulting for CEOs, presidents and owners of privately held companies, often with a gross annual income of between $5 million and $50 million. Our clients are typically experiencing rapid change – most often explosive sales growth or a new product launch.
We are focused on helping ownership create a long-term vision, actionable business plans and plans for developing their management teams. This helps their companies adapt to change (whether planned or unplanned), convert challenges into opportunities and set a course for personal and professional fulfillment.
Some examples of our recent work include helping companies achieve pre-tax profitability within the first year of working with them; guiding CEOs through strategic and financial planning to create 10-year plans and pinpoint effective methodologies for new product launches and acquisitions; and conducting weekly or monthly consultation sessions with company leadership to guide strategies, improve operations and achieve business growth.
