Financial Peace of Mind

for any size business

Stillwater was started in Lynchburg, VA as a solution to companies in need of financial services and business direction. Though we provide consultation and make recommendations to businesses, we are not a CPA or consulting firm. As the saying goes, “a consultant is someone who borrows your watch and then charges you to tell you what time it is!” That is not us. We at Stillwater will actually get our hands dirty.

A key differentiator between us and a CPA firm is, opposed to focusing solely on journal entries and tax advice, you can count on us to be a business “partner” who will build or help you build forecastsbudgets, and financial models for decision-making. Stillwater will even help you save money and improve performance by participating, or even leading, negotiations with vendors.

We do all of this with any business size. Helping sole-proprietors get a new business started on the right foot, providing solutions to small and mid-size companies with financial questions/problems, and assisting large organizations with tools designed for business decisions are all in our wheelhouse.

Our mission is to help businesses, large and small, succeed financially. Why “Stillwater”? We provide peace, or "still waters", to your business finance decisions, so you can focus on managing your operations or trade.

ExperienceCorporate Finance: Leading FP&A (Financial Planning & Analysis) teams, providing senior leadership with the financial health of the organization.

Business Analysis: Developing financial models, leading teams of analysts, and providing business insights for decision-making.

Vendor Management: Establishing best practices, coaching vendor managers, and leading teams driving substantial cost savings with suppliers.

PassionAnother key differentiator for Stillwater is our passion. We are not happy with simply answering some accounting questions and charging you for it, like most financial service firms. There is no excitement in that, because that is a business model designed solely to make money and nothing else. We actually want our clients’ businesses to succeed, grow, and become more profitable. That is the passion that motivates us, excites us, and drives us every day!

Serving Small to Mid-Size Businesses:  Many smaller businesses are started by one person or a group of people with a strong skill or talent in a particular area, such as a law firm, medical office, plumbing company, etc. With a skillset in another area, often these businesses need assistance ensuring they are making good financial decisions.Stillwater fills this void by helping develop a budget, forecast profitability, explain financial results, and offer business insights to these groups and individuals.

Serving Large Organizations: In large organizations, the corporate finance team is often understaffed, unfortunately. This leads to frustrated and underserved business partners.Stillwater solves for this by partnering with these leaders, in conjunction with their finance team, to deliver extensive financial support.  This support is often in the form of financial models, business analysis and vendor negotiations.
