David A. Beattie, President
Hamilton & Staff, Inc.
We have a complicated, cyclical business. Roger took the time to understand how our business works and develop a valuation that took analysis and experience to develop accurately. His thorough, professional approach was appreciated by our partners and accountants.
Robert H. Thayer, President and CEO
Goodwill Industries of Florida, Inc.
We have utilized Roger’s services to do business valuations. We consider him to be a man of tremendous integrity and strong interpersonal skills, as well as possessing excellent capabilities in evaluating a potential business acquisition.
Loraine Bachmann, President
Briggs House Antiques, Inc.
Roger helped me to get a very realistic value for my New York retail business in preparation of a sale offering, and this required in-depth question and answer sessions. As the sole owner, a lot of information was in my head, and my accountant’s documents were difficult, as they included areas other than the retail business, among them the real estate, which was not to be included in the sale offering. Patience…thy name is Roger. At the end, both my accountant and I were very satisfied with the logical, rational, easy to explain, business document. And with the recommended sale price. Roger’s final document will contribute to an easy sales negotiation when the time comes.
James L. Callahan
The Callahan Group
I have worked with Roger Birong for over ten years and during that time he has always furnished professional and very comprehensive responses to a variety of valuation requirements. I consider him to be a very valuable asset when preparing marketing profiles of businesses for sale.
Cal Heseman, MBA, Senior Business Advisor
I am so confident in Roger’s work that I frequently offer to reimburse my client for the cost of the appraisal when we go to the closing table.
Tania R. Schmidt, Esquire
…thank you for all your assistance with the business valuation in the…dissolution proceeding. It was an invaluable asset in settling the dissolution of marriage case at mediation.
Joseph P. Mitchell, C.P.A.
Roger has always done a superb job for my clients. I use him exclusively for business valuation assignments.
Stephen L. Phillips, C.P.A.
Roger is my ‘goto’ person for business valuation. I can always count on him to meet the high standards required by my clients.
Carl M. Messina, President
I recently utilized the services of Roger Birong…to do a business valuation on my business. I was going through a divorce at the time. The only way to really describe the situation and give Mr. Birong, his business and his appraisal the honor due is to say that on the stand, the two appraisers could be compared like a brain surgeon to a general practitioner. Mr. Birong was outstanding on the stand. [He] saved me approximately $500,000 in the final judgment… [of which] my ex-wife would have received 50%.
Deborah J. Regnone, President
Little did I know what a valuable tool the valuation of my business would be to me. Your professional insight, analysis and explanation of the “how’s and why’s” have guided my business decisions for years. I wouldn’t dream of entering into a partnership or selling my business without an updated valuation and your professional leadership.
Ken Bergmann, President
The recommendation by the University of North Florida and Barnett Bank to employ your services has given me the opportunity to open my eyes to what the priorities of a general manager should be. Your help has forced me to focus on the bigger picture. I have been able to step back and see all the facets of the business at one time instead of being overly focused in one area.
Your flexibility in adapting to my financial needs and my time frame has also been a great help. I am looking forward to working with you on a regular basis and am sure that your experience and advice will help to make my business successful.
Charles R. Gibbs, President
I wanted to drop you a note to thank for you assisting us in the pursuit of alternative sources of financing for our company. The results of your interview with our bank loan officer were very enlightening and has provided us with a new insight regarding our banking relationship with that institution. Your analysis and counsel were most helpful and we look forward to working with you further as we continue with our financial planning.
James C. Johns, President
Your advice and assistance with our internal operating system and business planning as been extremely helpful. I wish you well in your pursuits and I will be in touch in the near future to continue our work on the company business plan.
Darren Johnson, President
I wanted to take a moment to express our sincerest gratitude for the tremendous job you did on our business plan, especially given such a very condensed time frame. We have just completed our first month of the new business which has gone exceedingly well. Needless to say, without the very comprehensive business plan you helped us prepare, we would not have been able to raise the necessary capital to meet our November 1 deadline. So far, the budget guidelines and pre-planning you outlined for us has been a tremendous help. If I can every be a reference or speak to anyone on your behalf, please feel free to have them call me. Thanks again for all your help on a job well done.
Rita Ross, President
Thank you for your assistance in developing a company business plan for Cosmopolitan Highway Tours, Inc. Your advice and counsel have been invaluable. Please feel free to use our company as a reference for future clients.
Nancy L. Debs, P.E., President
Mr. Birong developed a system for our firm for the computation and compilation of our expenses and our revenues, both projected and actual. This has proven to be a valuable tool to measure the firm’s productivity. Mr. Birong has provided concise and detailed information to Debs & Associates, and has been an asset to the company in our start-up.
Julie M. Krey, M.B.A.
Roger’s management consulting services far exceeded our expectations. His willingness to work with us in a situation where time was of the essence was outstanding. My husband and I are both business majors but inexperienced in the process of buying a business. Roger kept the process in focus for us, which made our transaction run quite smoothly. His expertise kept our eyes objective during our due diligence process.
I will always be grateful to your for being so professional and helpful. I highly recommend Birong Associates to anyone in need of professional business consulting.
