Hi, I’m Brent …
I’d like to tell you a little about myself, so you’ll know how I came to be the person who can make a difference in your company.
Growing up a military brat and later serving in the US Navy myself, I’ve seen a lot of the world. I’ve lived in 4 countries and visited 25 more, and ran a successful business in South Africa in the 90’s.
As a young person, personal computers and I grew up together. Being a natural self-teacher, as PC’s developed, I learned all I could about them, thus applications became second nature to me. Business tech has been in my blood as long as I can remember! I’ve rarely met a problem I couldn’t find a solution to. In fact, I’ve sometimes been compared to a bulldog when it comes to finding business solutions, because I sink my teeth in and don’t let go!
Beginnings of Navigator Solutions LC
In 1991 I began to work as a freelance business consultant, which eventually developed into the forming of Navigator Solutions in 2011. This company is the culmination of my 40+ years working as an analyst, strategist, and business owner. With this experience, I am in the unique position of understanding the many disciplines of the manufacturing and small business scene and am able to communicate with everyone from the shop floor to the CEO, and beyond to attorneys, bankers, and accountants. It is my privilege to use my years of experience to help small and medium businesses face the challenges that so often come along with high growth.
Family Life …
I’ve been married to the love of my life for 25 years and have 8 incredible kids. Yeah. Eight! My wife has home schooled all of them from pre-k to high school graduation. Speaking of dealing with challenges, right?
Farm Livin’ …
Another fun fact – we own a small farm in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, where we raise goats and chickens (and have been known to occasionally take on cows, pigs, and sheep!). We also enjoy raising Great Pyrenees, an amazing breed of livestock guardian dogs.
So, there’s never a dull moment around here!
But enough about me! Let’s talk about you!
It takes a special person (or team) with vision and high energy to create a fast-growing business, and I love learning about the uniqueness and challenges these companies face. Being able to offer a personalized, hands-on approach to solving those issues is one of the greatest parts of what I do. I often find we strike a perfect balance and symmetry as I use my no-nonsense business sense, skills, and experience in manufacturing to provide much-needed organizational and management support to your vision and incredible growth as a company. I can help you build on your successes and overcome the hurdles that may be keeping you from greater, more solid growth as a company. It’s what I love to do!
