Greg McKim is a personable and competent leader. Greg, the principal at McKim & Associates, worked on a significant project for my Division at a local university. His expertise and sensible approach were refreshing. While understanding the marketplace well, he took time to understand our context equally as well and then communicated a suite of strategies that made sense and were easily operational for our team. The result was significant and repeated success.
Since that time Greg and I have intentionally stayed connected. Greg is thoughtfully engaged in his community as he gives back through service and leadership. He is a sharp leader, learner, and communicator who has often provided great moments of clarity and insight. I would heartily endorse Greg as a person who will add value to your organization and to your team as individuals.

Empire Screen Print
McKim & Associates has been involved with Empire Screen Print for a number of years. Initially, we employed them to help us develop our business by providing tools and guidance to ensure we had a better understanding of our customers and our business. We then engaged them to create a compensation package for a significant new hire that would impact our business dramatically.
We recently utilized his expertise to generate a focus with our team and a results-based program to bring in a successful year end. He has also provided ongoing advice as required. Greg McKim provides excellent service. In all three cases he has taken care to thoroughly evaluate the situation, engaged us in thought provoking discussions and ensured we had an action-based plan with measurements and timelines to go forward.
One notable difference we have found with McKim and Associates, is that even after the timeline engaged for, there was follow up to ensure we were accountable to the actions we had committed to. As a small and busy enterprise, we found this very helpful.
We would and have recommended McKim and Associates to other medium sized businesses. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

In 2015 when I decided to go solely into t-shirt printing and wanted to go automated, I knew that I need not only equipment but more space. I decided to meet up with Greg McKim and tell him my dream. Started off with the new name of the business which was Imagine T-shirts Plus Inc. Then Greg told me we needed to find out what my target market was and what kind of possible volume I would need to invest in this equipment. So I just kept feeding Greg all the info that I knew and Greg started doing up my business plan. I then told him my bigger dream and it was to have my own building, so we started putting that in my business plan. Having used Greg’s consulting in my past business dealing with Empire Screen Print I knew that I was in good hands. Greg asked the hard questions and made sure that all the info that was going into my business plan not only accurate but also very detailed! When I proposed my business plan to my banker, I knew that It was top notch and that I had all the information that I needed! My banker was very impressed with my plan and Imagine T-shirts was moving forward with building a new shop and purchasing all new automated t-shirt screen printing equipment! Its almost 3 yrs. since I moved into my new shop and I have surpassed my projections in the plan that Greg and I proposed! I would highly recommend Greg McKim for any business consultation!

I acquired the services McKim & Associates in October of 2018 to develop the launch of a new revenue stream for my business in the form of Personal Pies. McKim and Associates, though their main principal Greg McKim, led me through a well planned strategy including a market assessment for potential size, product research through sampling and customer questionnaires, pricing determination and product launch. He was able to provide key critical timelines and pace of launch keeping me on track in addition to my core business
To date the launch has become 13 percent of my weekly revenue at our market outlet, a 15-20 percent increase in sales. We continue to grow at an accelerated pace. Consistent follow up and tracking of our progress has aided me in making informed decisions for investment and next steps. As an example during the launch we determined an opportunity for small dessert pies taking advantage of improving the production capability. This has been very successful.
Provision of a breakeven point for acquisition of equipment for improved production allowed me to continually track payback timelines. Finally McKim & Associates has been instrumental in connecting me with potential local product supplier partners and with support organizations with market overview.
I am endorsing McKim & Associates as a company who can be of great benefit to new or existing companies in determining how products fit within their brand and how to bring ideas to operational execution.
Please feel free to connect with me regarding the above.
