Richard Thériault’s degree in Business Administration was just the beginning of his in-depth knowledge of the business world. He gained much more when he walked in the shoes of the entrepreneur, owning a multi-million dollar international boat-building business.
He has also held executive and leadership positions in manufacturing, consulting and banking as he created a skills portfolio to become a true financier.
A “roll-up your sleeves and pitch in” kind of leader, he also gleaned information about the international market through his own business and consultation work. In addition, he led numerous trade missions to help businesses develop import-export markets.
Richard has been involved in more than 250 projects delivering business plans, market studies, business diagnostics and strategic plans in recent years.
In all his experience, he insists that business is not necessarily complicated; sometimes it just takes another set of eyes looking at the situation to identify a solution. He finds innovative ways to assess businesses so that working with entrepreneurs, he can bring their businesses to the next level.
In particular, his considerable experience in capital sourcing, financial planning and cash flow and profit building has helped small and medium-size businesses achieve new stages of success.
