CEO and Chief Consultant
Randall has been working as a business consultant for over 11 years. His educational emphasis on business and art allows him to develop creative solutions quickly and he sees the connection between environment and application: in other words what is around you and the system you are in greatly affects how you perform.
In 2005 Randall left his position as Marketing Director for Consolidated Pump & Supply, a waterwell wholesale business with $1.5m in annual sales, to start 14th Colony. He enjoys working several projects and helping business owners take the step from start-up to established business.
Randall is a husband, father, pet owner, prolific reader of books and an active volunteer. Over the past 3 years he has put emphasis on the study of leadership principles.
It always starts with a conversation...
At 14th Colony, we have developed a process to ease new clients in gracefully and with a minimum of hassle. We'll talk to you about your business - its strengths and weaknesses, staff, and goals. We actually have a questionnaire that we'll fill out with you to ensure you understand the questions and to help you get through it quickly - we value your time and ambition! The questionnaire takes 20 minutes to 2 hours depending on how well you know your business and how tightly you've defined your project goals. At 14th Colony, we work toward results. And we want to ensure that what you have in your mind is what we are seeing on paper.
Once the questionnaire is complete, we'll create a proposal based on the information in the questionnaire. The proposal will include clear results, timelines, restrictions and anything else related to the project. It will also include payment terms, which usually includes a deposit. Once the proposal is accepted and the deposit is paid, work starts.
