Why Us?

A pipeline company, which is part of a large mid-western oil company, re-engineered itself to be more competitive, to expand its services outside the parent company and to be financially successful in its own right. Success depended on turning every person, including the pipeline foremen, into business entrepreneurs.

Maronde Associates, working with management, developed a two-day business skills class focused on how each participant financially impacts the company.

After training managers, foremen and selected staff personnel over a two-year period, net income increased 28.7% while revenue increased only 11.4%. This was a direct result of people making better-quality business decisions to ensure long-term viability, NOT by taking short-term cost cuts.
