Lonnie Graver has over 32 years of accounting and finance experience primarily in technology, manufacturing, and service industries that included ownership. He helped grow two technology-based companies from mature start-ups into very successful businesses, one of which was sold to a private equity firm. Lonnie played a key role on the team that worked with a broker during the sale.
He has been instrumental in growing revenue and EBITDA, developing operational controls, and creating a sales automated process and reporting metrics via a dashboard for a technology company with revenue that increased from 10K a month to $3.5M annually and negative EBITDA to an average of 25% a year. Additionally, Lonnie has participated in two implementations of PeopleSoft and Great Plains/Microsoft Dynamic software, and served as project lead on the Great Plains implementation which was delivered on time and on budget. This diverse experience has allowed him to gain valuable insight on how business processes, workflow, and software can help a business become more efficient and productive.
Lonnie’s other past responsibilities have included developing and maintaining relationships with banking institutions, audit and legal teams, and outsourced HR firms; establishing and executing strategic initiatives; creating real-time financial tools and measurements to ensure a better understanding from non-financial stakeholders; and coaching and developing staff and team members to face the needs of a growing business. His wealth of experience, passion for solving complex problems, and strong analytical skills help his clients successfully navigate today’s fast-paced business environment while growing and scaling their businesses.
