"Dick Growitz and I made contact for the express purpose of
having DG Associates handle the liquidation of my company.
After reviewing my situation, Mr. Growitz advised that though we
might pursue the sale, unless we increased the economic value, the
business would be sold at a greatly reduced price. I gave him approval
to "turn" the company around. . . .
As a result of these efforts, in May, the company earned its first
profit in 6-months, . . . .I had enough tools at hand to manage
the business better than we ever had historically.
Using DG Associates to help solve my problems was not only one of
the best business decisions I have made but it was an investment
in the future."

"Your lead participation at the Hampton Co-operative Bank Business
Forum helped to make our event a success. We have received very
favorable comments from all those who attended. I appreciate your
efforts and cooperation on our behalf."
Paul A. Perregaux,
Massachusetts Motor Transportation Association,
"Your presentation was hard-hitting, relevant and of particular
interest to our membership. In this period of economic down-turn,
creative approaches to managing small companies become very important
especially in the Massachusetts trucking industry which is experiencing
unusual cost increases and heavy outside competition. Your techniques
and methods as discussed in the seminar offer an excellent alternative
management style for those carriers who must better control and
organize their businesses in order to survive."

"Dick Growitz . . . was instrumental in developing and installing
financial controls .
Monthly and annual profit/(loss) budgets
Profit/(loss) monthly variance analysis
Accelerated billing procedures to improve cash flow
Program to collect old receivables
To increase our sales, he was the impetus in developing an aggressive
marketing program . . . . On the operational side, he developed
and helped us install daily and weekly activity budgets designed
to monitor, control and provide goals for our dispatching and driver
activities. . . . Dick's personal, roll-up-you-sleeve approach and
interpersonal skills helped us reorganize the Company, clearly define
areas of responsibility for our managers and generally increased
the effectiveness and the quality of our decision making.
In a period of 3 months, the company was able to increase sales
15% and move from a loss to earnings of about $100,000 on an annual
basis. We were quite satisfied with D.G. Associates and would highly
recommend their services."

"After discussing my situation, DG Associates reacted quickly
and helped develop and implement some short term strategies designed
to stop my downward plunge. The strategy addressed our costs - operating
and fixed; a restructuring of our sales functions; and the development
of a business plan to be used as a basis of discussion with my creditors.
I am firmly convinced that my investment in the services of DG Associates
was one of the best business decisions I have made and I fully intend
to continue using their services."

"Frank Swiniarski was a significant force in helping us "turn-the-corner."
Working with our Company quite closely, he developed and implemented
. . . major programs which put us on the road to serious profitability."

"In his role of business advisor, he [Dick Growitz] has helped
Providence Chain to better position itself to take advantage of
the potential within the jewelry chain industry. He has assisted

Realign our middle management, train the managers, and push responsibility
down into the organization. . . ., define and implement sales and
marketing strategies . . . ., clarify our [upper management] own
roles so that now we can better chart and manage the growth of our
company . . . ., [and] better define financing alternatives to fund
our future growth.
We highly recommend D.G. Associates and expect to use their services
as our needs develop.

Growitz . . . has been creative in helping me reorganize my company
so it will continue to grow, yet still provide the personalized
service so necessary to the success of my business. His "hands
on" approach is effective and he had trained my managers
and supervisors so they know how to approach operating problems
and manage their people more effectively. . . . I have found that
the quality of work and the communications within the company
have increased substantially . . . . I am quite pleased with my
new structure . . . . I highly recommend the services of Dick
Growitz of D.G. Associates."
