Acumen

“The positive influence and encouragement I've received from my Acumen team and Chair helped me develop a sharper focus and clarity for our business. We implemented many new Key Performance Indicators and engaged our entire team in meeting and exceeding those KPIs. We filled our funnel with work that ensured profitable results. Additionally, I've now successfully transitioned from the day-to-day activities of the business and have executed on a generational succession plan. Grateful for the support, encouragement and wisdom my peers offered.”

Integration of Faith and Commerce for Greatest Impact and Legacy

Acumen

“Acumen is the one place in my life where I'm surrounded by group of business owners and CEOs that actually understand and are empathetic with the challenges, struggles and frustrations (and the great privilege) of owning, growing and leading a Christ-centered business. Acumen adds mentoring from seasoned business owners who have run larger companies and gone through challenges that we have in front of us. Throw in a big dose of accountability to focus on the Spirit’s leading, and you have a powerful and indispensable resource for Christian business owners.”
