What is your relationship with SCORE? SCORE client How SCORE helped.

Tom Sasura, Vice President started with the company in 2011. “Some of my biggest challenges were knowing and understanding all of the financials, M&A, Cash flow, and working directly with our Bank.”  “Score has helped in so many ways, as they say, knowledge is power and Bob and Greg have helped me understand the areas, I needed help in, and still continue to this day”.  We are trying to grow, as the 3rd generation is preparing to take control of the company and with Score’s help, they are assisting in the succession planning, guiding and prepping me to make sound decisions, and have opened my mind to think about new ideas or scenarios while making sure our company will be driven and focused for profit and success.  “I now understand the financials and how they all tie together which will allow me to make decisions much easier on my own vs. having to rely on someone all the time.”
