“Initially the Business Diagnostic showed $200k in profit leakage which had me skeptical. Our Strategic Consultant Partner has been with
us for 8 months now and we are absolutely on track to find the $200k over the next 12 months. The Productivity
strategies alone have given us a 10% lift. We have asked our Strategic Consultant Partner to join our board.”
“We had a very unfair and onerous lease. Our Strategic Consultant Partner researched the lease and found it had no
personal guarantees and was in the name of a dormant entity allowing us to relocate and walk away with no
repercussions. Saved us $20k per month, $400k over the next 2.5 years and this was from our first meeting!”
“The Business Diagnostic came up with $174k Iin profit leakage which sounded a bit high. We have introduced several strategies that
have us on track for $254k for the first year with our Strategic Consultant Partner
We worked on waste savings and productivity improvement strategies that so far have us on track for $316k in
additional profits in our first year of working together.”

Johnny has taken our department that was heavy with inventory, yet empty on the shelves, and streamlined it actulizing an additional $84K in profit.
“It is my distinct privilege to recommend Johnny Furlong. I have worked with him for the past year and have seen in him a shining example of integrity. His experience in working to help place people in this business has been my basis for learning the business. He inspires confidence and builds creditability with his clients and candidates.
Johnny's professionalism, diligence, honesty, and good nature made him not only easy to work with but much easier than any of his competition. His reliable attention to detail and ability to read people allowed me to rely on him more than anyone else. The work he did for my organization was almost always on target with what we needed, and he never wasted my time like so many others do. The reason I used his firm was completely because of Johnny's effort.
