Who We Are
Business professionals with relevant experience to help you
Jim Coyle has over 20 years of helping companies obtain the level of success they were built to achieve. Jim has owned and operated many of his own small to midsized business operations (SMB) and realized that small businesses need their own set of solutions. He ‘cut his teeth’ in the corporate consulting culture for awhile, working with the likes of Ocean Spray, Allstate, Accenture, Bombardier and other Fortune 500 companies. However, Jim gained his true SMB expertise by working through the issues and opportunities that all small business owners face.
Jim’s approach for bringing real results to SMB companies is looking at the business as a whole and then helping the owner(s) and their leadership teams to implement practical solutions to road blocks that are getting in their way. Jim is not just about providing businesses with the right answer, but helping them implement that right answer to create real life business solutions.
Jim had also caught the eye of another organization focused on practical solutions for SMB organizations. Due to Jim’s abilities and his unique approach, he became accredited by the Institute for Independent Business (IIB). The IIB is an international accreditation body of business advisors from every type of business imaginable. The IIB recently acknowledged Jim’s continued success by making him a Fellow of the organization. By working with Jim, you will have his expertise on your side plus the support of over 4,000 other talented business minds around the world.
If you don’t think your business is achieving the level of success it was built to achieve, send Jim a message about setting up a meeting on his dime.

Andrew is driven to help entrepreneurial organizations get healthy, grow and prosper. His experiences make him a great fit for organizations that are: stuck, and need help breaking through a ceiling; have succession planning needs; foresee selling the business in two to five years
His expertise is rooted in the first twenty years of his career spent owning and leading entrepreneurial companies.
After starting at a Tier 1 Automotive supplier, he realized he wasn’t cut out for bureaucracy of “big company life” and left to become GM of a 60-person company at age 25.
He then joined his family business as COO and after a decade of family business experience, sold his shares back and exited. Since then he’s founded four other entrepreneurial companies, and has been doing Merger & Acquisition work since 2008.
Andrew believes business in a post-covid economy requires companies to get stronger, much faster and EOS is the best way to do that.
