Cogency was founded with the needs of the small business in mind. The motivation behind the company came from the strong desire to help small businesses, and the recognition that small business entrepreneurs, are often ignored by large consulting firms, and left behind with limited or no access to good, and affordable professional advice, and help.
"The Small Business Administration (SBA) refers to small business as "the heart of the American economy", and goes on to point out that they make up more than 99.7% of all employers, employ about 50 percent of all private sector workers, make up 97 percent of exporters and produce 29 percent of all export value, and create 75 percent of the net new jobs in our economy. (Source: U.S. Small Business Administration)."

Theorists and philosophers since Aristotle have always viewed the middle classes as a source of social stability, with one of their core groups being the “small business entrepreneurs”. Equally central to the idea of Cogency was the fact that it is easier and more effective to influence change, and reform, at the “heart” – the small business.

People in focused specializations, such as CPAs, Bankers, and Attorneys, bring only a very limited, and focused scope of services, and consequently their benefit to day-to-day operations are only in narrow, select areas. In this respect there is no real substitute for an independent, objective, business advisor (to work hand-in-hand with the client to bring tried, true, and tested ideas, concepts, and actions, and prevent long delays in getting to the most effective courses of action, and implementing them in a smooth, orderly, and timely fashion).

All this information points, overwhelmingly, to the need for one on one consultancy in the small business sector.

At Cogency, we are passionate, and always put the best interests of our client before our own. We believe in “Client First”.

Executive Profile

At Cogency, we draw from a repertoire of skills, techniques, and experience very specific to small to mid-sized businesses. The lessons, successes  and rewards that have resulted from having invested ourselves in remedying and addressing specific issues and problems within companies and very often with their joint ventures, branches, subsidiaries, acquisitions and divestitures, led to our keen interest and passion in establishing ourselves as  full-time, independent small-business advisors, and consultants.

Our collective experience includes deep experience in diverse Industrial settings, and a variety of very senior & responsible roles. Industrial sectors, we have experience in include Information Technology, Staffing, Oil & Gas, Construction, and Furniture Manufacturing & Retail.

Companies we have worked with include mid-sized supply chain vendors to the Oil & Gas industry and other global corporations including Schlumberger, Brown & Root, Halliburton, ABB, Sandvik, Shell Gasoline, Tidewater Marine, and Waste Management, to name a few. These have earned us expert knowledge of businesses such as Specialist Tools & Engineering Services, Offshore Maintenance, Waste and Environmental Assesment and Remediation, Machine Shop Services, Fleet Management, Catering and Telecommunications.


We have developed several relationships with people of a wide variety of cultures, languages, customs, and countries. Through it all, we have found that the basic principles we espouse as business consultants remain unchanged, and the major difference is how to implement the necessary changes across such a diverse cross-section of personalities and company cultures.
