Evergreen Advisors was the essential element that made this merger come together. They offered deep experience and expert advice, and they kept our goals front and center throughout the process. Combined with Cadmus, our Wheelhouse team has an exciting future ahead, and I'm grateful to our Evergreen team for helping to make that happen.
The result of our experience with Evergreen was outstanding. From the very beginning and all the way through closing, Evergreen was by our side guiding us. The value they brought was the understanding of the market, the buyers, and them taking the time getting to know enough about our company to speak to the potential buyers and “sell” our company to them. It was a complete team effort and I could not be happier having gone with Evergreen to represent us during this major life event. The team really understands the technical aspects of the business, but what separates them from others is their personal touch and real desire to do what is best for the owner.
We engaged Evergreen Advisors at a time when our company was on the verge of exponential growth and the timing could not have been better. They came highly recommended from our small business partner network. From the onboarding process to the ongoing support, we have never as a company had the support of an entity that manages up, we are usually in the position of having to drive results out of most of our consultants and subcontractors.
One of our biggest issues prior to engaging Evergreen was that our processes only allowed us to see up to two months out and that was accomplished with an abundance of communication which at times was difficult. Due to our rapid growth, we needed more room and visibility ahead to make sound financial decisions to manage the influx of work. Evergreen has since worked extensively with our team to develop and implement more comprehensive financial and forecasting plans. We are now able to make decisions with a sharply focused lens up to a year out. Information that we always had available in raw form has now been normalized allowing us to navigate the company fiscal pulse more dynamically. Their wealth of experience and their vast networks provide an unprecedented amount of reach back to various resources within the industry.
We are really fortunate to be partnered with Evergreen!
Once UMBC Training Centers contracted with Evergreen Advisors in March 2019, Harris helped us prioritize our needs from an executive perspective while also considering the daily processing of accounting work. Harris has a great deal of experience working at accounting firms and large global corporations and he was able to relate to our situation and anticipate the issues/decisions we would face.
Working with Evergreen Advisors made for a smooth transaction. We could not have been more pleased with the advice and support that we received from Rick Kohr and his team as we negotiated the acquisition of our business. With his business acumen and financial knowledge, Rick was a valued partner in charting our path forward. We highly recommend Evergreen Advisors to anyone looking for guidance on the future direction of their organization.
The team at Evergreen found us the perfect partner in Kelly Services to accomplish the transaction objectives at GTA.
I highly recommend Evergreen as the go-to resource for innovative companies looking for accelerated growth and the capital to achieve their goals. Additionally, as the Chair-Co-Founder of the parent company, and the CEO of Bandura, I realized that to expedite fund-raising, we would need a management team that had successfully raised investment rounds and had the ability to rapidly build a sales team. Evergreen coordinated a process for interviewing and selecting a new CEO and they provided an outsourced, experienced CFO to the team. As a female founder and cyber pioneer, I want to add that I felt I respected, heard and consulted every step of the way!
I want to personally acknowledge how much I¹ve appreciated Mark's guidance and support for Actium in general but for me specifically. I know that without his general availability going forward there will be gaps and holes that we cannot fill. I take some comfort knowing that he'll take our calls and contribute when we need him. Mark is a true professional and your calm rational approach has always been appreciated.
“Working with the team at Evergreen was a pleasure. Our transaction, much like all transactions, was pretty non-standard and the whole Evergreen team was great at helping our team evaluate, respond, and continue moving our process forward. They were there when we needed them, gave us excellent insight and advice, and stuck with us through closing. I hope we have a chance to work together again in the future."
"Evergreen has been an integral part of our team. They were available for the general taskings but also went above and beyond in many cases when extra help was needed. I personally could not be as successful in my job without them as a part of our financial team. They have allowed me to focus on other non-financial functions and they were extremely responsive, even on weekends, holidays, and vacations. Everyone that we have worked with from Evergreen has been nothing short of wonderful and extremely knowledgeable in their field!"
“Working with Evergreen has been a great pleasure. These are the people you want on your side to lean on and trust.”
Evergreen Advisors helped us smoothly transition by providing us with their CFO services. Their wealth of knowledge and expertise helped us develop, learn and grow as a company. We are now confident our company has transitioned to a position that we can now achieve growth and success for the future. I highly recommend Evergreen for their outstanding service and their true sense of partnership.

"Evergreen seamlessly fits right into an executive team. Soon after starting, our team realized they were providing valuable financial and strategic advice. I would not want to build an enterprise without the CFO advisory services offered by Evergreen."

Their commitment to our organization has gone above and beyond. I would enthusiastically recommend Evergreen for any business seeking a CFO for their growing needs."
