Doreen Petty has been an incredible asset to the strength and growth of my business. Meetings with Doreen have proven to be insightful and thought provoking. She leads me in to a process where I can learn to accomplish goals and tasks on my own with smart, well thought out decisions. We take goals and work them into a business strategy that is viable and possible. Doreen pushes me to be more perceptive and think before reacting to promote the best possible outcomes in relationships with employees and clients alike. Doreen has bridged the gap where I find some of my weaknesses and taught me to forget, move past, and learn from negative experiences. She has taught me that I am exactly where I am meant to be at this very moment now. But she has also taught me to open my eyes to the world of possibilities and what could be true when I don't put limits on myself. I highly recommend Doreen as a personal coach/business consultant. Her experience from corporate America is invaluable to a small business owner like myself.

We cannot say enough about our experience with IA Business Advisors. From the moment we met with them, we knew that we had the right advisors for our business. My partner and I have been in the corporate world, small venture startups, real estate and even restaurant experience. Between the both of us have over 50 years of business experience; yet, we were asked questions and given ideas that literally revolutionized our thinking and brought us into the 21st Century. Out of all the classic adjectives to describe our experience with IA, Responsiveness, Quality, Professionalism, Know-how, Proficiency, the best word we would use is Value. Their help in developing an ERP for our business has been Invaluable. We are a fast-growing service business and with IA’s help we can now manage that growth and see a bright future ahead for our business.

After spending several years away from the nuclear power industry working in research administration and operations, Julia really helped me develop and focus my story, my resume, and my interview talking points. She not only helped me create a concise narrative for employers, but her advice helped me better understand what I wanted and where I wanted to go. It was a lot more than just a resume or a cover letter, but a lesson in how to understand my interests and market my talent the way I wanted it to be heard -- and also get the job! Props to Julia, she really has a talent for this and helped me utilize even my most eclectic experience to land and nail the interview and get the job I'd hoped for at a major national lab. I definitely recommend.

Our company is very fortunate that Halloran and Reilly LLC were introduced to us six years ago. They have helped our company grow during a struggling economy; provided guidance and education to in house accounting associates, evaluated and helped implement tax strategies that have been instrumental in the growth of our company. For many years our company worked with accounting and tax professionals that “just plugged our number in boxes.” Halloran and Reilly stand out because their team of professionals takes the time to evaluate a business and propose suggestions for implantation. This is all done with full access. We actually get to talk with our accountant … NOT an assistant. They have provided our company a sounding board to deal with issues, offered unbiased suggestions and solutions in a very professional and timely manner, and have always been reasonable and fair in their consulting and CPA fees. Moving forward our company looks forward to a long prosperous relationship with Halloran and Reilly LLC. In closing I would like to add; yes, the internet virtual relationship really works well!

    Wish I could give 10 stars! As the CEO and Founder of my business, I hired them for a strategy planning and implementation session. My company is in its early growth stage, so we didn’t have a lot of spare funds to hire a big consulting firm. That is why we took an alternative approach, which has worked out even better! The firm helped us revamp our marketing and operations strategies, which has been remarkably valuable. Since there are only subject experts on the team, we didn’t have pay extra fees like if we hired a big firm. I worked with Jonathan Schroeder whom has an unbelievable wealth of business acumen. He is extremely easy to work with and very down-to-earth. I highly, HIGHLY recommend him! I plan to keep them on retainer going forward. Hopefully, I will be able to recruit Jonathan for our management team this year!

      From the very beginning you could tell Mike had a passion for marketing. Mike was able to take our successful business and breath new life into its marketing efforts from creating an entirely new website that is so much easier to navigate for our clients and much cleaner look that appears far more polished then the last one we had. To the "gorilla type" creative market tools and ideas to reach those decision makers who have very close relationships with your competitors. Mike and the entire Costigan Consulting group has been great!

      Kristen and I worked together in the Administration Dept of a mid size company. She was Director of HR and handled payroll as part of that responsibility. Kristen's work was exceptionally good and she handled numerous difficult employee situations very well. She exercised excellent judgment and demonstrated a deep knowledge of all HR requirements and strategies. Her work was always accurate and timely. She handled all matters with professionalism and in the strictest confidence. Kristen holds the highest designation of the Human Resources profession, Senior Professional of Human Resources. It indicates that she has completed rigorous exams pertaining to all aspects of HR management and rules. I would highly recommend Kristen for Human Resources and company administration responsibilities.
