Why choose Promo Consulting to help you get to that next level of success?
I’ve been in your shoes and have been through all the challenges you are facing with lots of success and some failure along the way. I started in sales then built my own successful distributorship. I moved to consulting then had a great 13-year run helping Facilisgroup grow from early stages to a public company. Along the way, I consulted with and learned from some of the best distributors in the business. I witnessed the success strategies of owners who took their business from $5 million to $35 million and retired wealthy.
I’m now at the giving back stage of my 40+ year career in promo and am enjoying helping successful distributors achieve their personal and business goals. Are we a fit for you? Let’s schedule a 30-minute introductory Zoom and find out.
Ron Baellow is a familiar face and valued consultant in the promotional products industry. While building his own distributorship into a 17-employee award-winning business, Ron also became a leader and advisor to business owners throughout the country. While strategically helping distributor owners improve sales, profitability, team cohesiveness, and personal growth, Ron also worked with business leaders to implement real, doable action steps – not generic concepts – so they see true progress and tangible results.
Ron’s consulting philosophy is a perfect complement to the Promo Consulting team: “Growth is my focus. No one has hired me yet to keep them where they are! I find out what hurts, look at processes, and analyze them. Then, together we develop an action plan that taps into team members’ strongest talents, put the plan to work, and make sure everyone follows the plan through accountability and positive reinforcement. Everyone will see the results of their role along the way. In medicine, prescription without diagnosis is malpractice. I use this same philosophy when I work with business leaders. I don’t have a single remedy for all situations. I determine the source of what ails the business, then I help develop a plan to cure it.”
Ron sold his distributorship Bright Ideas in 2022. His family’s succession plan was put into place years before the sale, which along with the experience and insight of their transaction and transition, makes him a valuable partner to help you plan, negotiate, and successfully sell your business.
