Passion. Experience. Diligence.
Stratelligence Business Consulting was the brainchild of Ken Runkles, our founder and Managing Partner. Ken has over 34 years of experience assisting companies achieve their maximum potential and desired objectives. He has worked in a multitude of industries throughout his career to include Banking, Biotechnology, Financial Services, served as Chief Financial Officer of a construction and land development company, an engineering firm, and two Information Technology companies. He has also held senior leadership positions at two of the largest accounting and management consulting companies in the world. His extensive experience throughout the years was developed and his passion came into focus: to bring world class management consulting expertise to small to medium business and government agencies and do so with rates they can afford.
He also recognized and appreciates that while back office operations, invoicing, payables, cash management, product and project management, and tax planning are necessary, many small companies tend to focus on these activities instead of delivering their products and services to their customers. Ken spent a lot of time in management consulting assisting large and complex organizations outsource their back office operations. He understand the pros and cons and has developed methodologies to ensure outsourcing is not only a viable option but can be the best business decision to make. Ken also realized that two underlying factors were the key to success in business, strategy and intelligence which was his primary motivation for creating Stratelligence Business Consulting.
