A Dayton CEO credited SCORE counselors with his small business success at the seventh annual Cincinnati and Dayton SCORE joint meeting.
Van Dyke said SCORE was a key ingredient to his firm’s start- up and growth. VanMartin Roofing grew from three employees in 2009 to a projected 20 by the end of 2013.
“The key to our success is recognizing when we needed help and following up with SCORE when help was provided,” he said. He said his SCORE mentor provided him with “business and operations planning, financial analysis, strategic planning, marketing, web site objectives, reality checks, morale boosts, pacing and how to have excitement and fun in the business.”
