Tight Lines Advisors: A New Brand & Next Chapter
for an Accomplished Global CEO

Here’s how it Happened…

THE RIGHT BRAND IS MATCHED TO THE SPARK OF AN IDEA TO MAKE IT FLOURISH

The former Precision Valve CEO and founder of Tight Lines Advisors knew he was on to something when he first implemented what would later become The Performance Accelerator™. When certain processes and principles were applied to manufacturing operations, good things started to happen. To launch this new firm, which is dedicated to using his unique model to help US manufacturing companies creating lasting and true value for all stakeholders he needed his brand to be powerful, distinctive and meaningful.

THE BRAND LEADERSHIP SOLUTION™

A thorough analysis of the firm’s unique approach was conducted to align it with the specific needs of its target manufacturing audiences. From these findings, we developed a set of clear visual and messaging assets for Tight Lines Advisors, separating it from the broad range of competing consulting practices.

DISCOVER: THE TIGHT LINES BRAND INSIGHT

While many firms will immediately look to effect drastic cuts to achieve immediate bottom line results, Tight Lines innovative approach attacks the mid-line or gross margin. In doing so, true efficiencies are uncovered, a healthier and more efficiently aligned culture is formed, and long-term value is established. Through its unique process, manufacturing organizations can achieve an average Cost of Goods Sold reduction of 8-12%.

The expression “tight lines” represents a prelude to success in fishing, sailing and several other waterside activities; the same attribution applies to running an effective and efficient manufacturing operation.

THE DESCRIPTOR:  Manufacturing Performance Consultants was used to clarify the firm’s defined niche, while differentiating from a crowded field of consultants and consulting firms.
