We Solve Problems
We’re really good at solving business problems and creating highly successful businesses. We provide high value to our clients because we care, and it shows in how we keep getting business—all our clients are referred to us by other clients and colleagues.
Here's what some of our clients have to say:
“We’ve heard your dedication, knowledge of our industry, and attention to achieving our goal has been invaluable.” – Phil Nolan, President and CEO of Suffolk Regional Off-Track Betting Corp.
“I was told about your willingness to sit and talk over whatever issue or question is the current business challenge.” – Tim McCarthy, Eureka Vapor Colorado
We’re driven to work hard, deliver on our promises, and create success for all involved. We’re committed to partnering with business owners, and their teams, and cultivating relationships based on respect and honesty to ensure our partnership solves the problems and successfully meets goals.
We love what we do. We love going to work every day and helping people all over the world improve their businesses and find greater success. Helping people solve their problems and eliminate whatever their roadblocks are so their businesses can reach the next level, or simply improving their day to day business practice, gives us immense satisfaction. Knowing we’re working to bring success and improve lives while we do it, is what keeps us going.

Caring for others and giving back to one’s community is a philosophy that Robert holds dear. As a child of Irish immigrants, with a father who worked two jobs all his life to provide for his family, he doesn’t take his success for granted. Instead, he feels it important to give back and has a history of doing so over the last 36 years.
Robert has supported with both time and money a variety of charitable organizations, locally and nationally. To name a few: The United Way, American Heart Association, The Leukemia Society, Friendly Sons of Saint Patrick, Helen Keller Services, Mineola Lions Club, Operation Healing Forces, Volunteers of America, Education and Assistance Corp (EAC Network), the Salvation Army, and Long Island Association for AIDS Care (LIAAC).
Along with our core group, we have an extensive list of partners and brother companies which becomes a comprehensive resource for large campaigns requiring press, public relations, legal advice, and comprehensive coverage leading to ultimate success.

“Robert met us in Australia and identified our technology as world leading. He very efficiently helped us launch in North America providing a wide range of support including starting an office, complying with all the corporate governance requirements of a U.S. entity, and launching our product. His real strength and value then increased with strong advice on marketing, sales, and positioning a business for growth in North America. We are now trading in 42 U.S. cities and have made an Australian business succeed in the U.S. with Robert’s support throughout the entire journey.”

And I highly appreciate his willingness to sit and talk over whatever issue or question is the current business challenge.
