When Jeff Lichtenstein, president of Gourmet Guru, a specialty foods distributor, first met with SCORE NYC counselor Elliot Merberg in December '07, his company was approaching its tenth year, was marginally profitable and seriously undercapitalized. Based on an initial analysis, Jeff, Elliot and Jeff's wife, Kim, the company's CEO, determined that the company lacked the working capital and management infrastructure essential to increasing its revenue. Together, they developed a detailed plan designed to increase working capital, upgrade their computer system and expand and modernize their warehousing facilities.

Over the last two years, implementing these changes has led to an increase in and restructuring of Gourmet Guru's management team, the implementation of upgraded information technology and their relocation to a new, state of the art "green" distribution center. Bottom line: the company's revenue for fiscal 2010 will exceed $23 million versus $8 million in 2007. Today, Jeff and Kim continue to tweak their operation, focusing on increasing revenues, higher net margins and greater productivity. Elliot Merberg continues his close association with the company as a member of its Board of Advisors.

An advisory board is an informal group. This is not a board of directors. It is a group of mentors. The group has no financial interest in your firm. This is a group of outside advisors who share their knowledge to help you be more competitive, think strategically and offer specific advice in key skill areas.

The benefits of an advisory board include: setting aside time to think strategically, obtain feedback and insights from outside the company, and gather information and expertise from peers who have knowledge in different areas than your own. In general, a three to five person board will likely meet your needs.
