Calm Waters Consulting
What is Calm Waters Consulting and/or Who is Todd B. Ringler CPA, CVA, MST?
Short Answer: A professional consultancy with extensive expertise in business value.
If you wanted to put a label on Todd, he is a College Professor, a consultant, a coach, a facilitator, an advisor and to some of his clients a "consigliere" who helps world class companies that often are closely held businesses, dramatically accelerate profits and increase enterprise value.
He is about helping companies substantially improve performance, current income and cash flow. Over the longer term these improvements increase Company value. Increased value is important to the people Calm Waters Consulting works with.
Improvement is done by boldly focusing on the totality of the business, its people, what tasks they perform, how they perform them, how the whole is monitored , who is accountable to whom and more importantly, why?
Todd works best with clients who are continually seeking to raise the bar and who welcome his rigorous, but informal working style. Todd's aim is build lasting relationships with his clients and he is delighted that clients often return to work with us again.
Because of his very different training, education and experience, Todd's clients have called him the "most untraditional CPA" they have ever known. Add to this he is a Certified Valuator and Analyst (CVA). This makes him a very uniquely qualified professional providing business valuation services and helping his clients identify, understand and improve what drives their business value. His ability to communicate and effectuate improvement change was perfected while sharing his expertise and experiences through hundreds of engagements and teaching MBA candidates and Community College students alike.
Before he became a CPA, ultimately owning and selling his own CPA firm, he was an Executive Chef and successful in the restaurant industry. His combination of academic education and professional training combined with the real world experience of a business owner allow Todd to bring a rare combination of support and knowledge to his clients.
Calm Waters works with owners and top level managers to determine where and how they can grow profits, while asking the larger questions of how all stakeholders improve in the process. Improvement is measurable, its application holistic to the people involved. Growth and a better quality of life are the results.
Todd thrives and enjoys getting involved to help clients achieve lasting performance improvement resulting in optimizing their many business value drivers.
