Exit Stage Right

WITH MARTHA SULLIVAN

Office witch trials: When it’s good to be a witch

Every business needs someone willing to put in a form of governance that outlines expectations, boundaries, rules, and policies. Someone must be willing and able to call timeouts and hold everyone accountable to the agreed-upon rules of engagement.

A one-time information systems consultant turned her most brilliant act of rebellion into a career as a CPA, CFO, COO, and profit and value growth strategist, consulting to hundreds of clients and colleagues over the past three decades.

Martha Sullivan, president of Provenance Hill Consulting LLC, founded her firm with one purpose: Help business owners build, buy, and sell strong, profitable companies that are attractive enough for someone to want to buy when the owner decides to chase their next adventure.

In addition to Provenance Hill, Martha is a consultant with The Family Business Consulting Group, a Chicago-based group of independent consultants working together to guide enterprising families and create the foundation for better business performance and stronger families.
