Running a business is no easy task. Owners must overcome several challenges, from hiring the right people and building a brand to developing a customer base. Controlling finances can be the most overwhelming of these challenges, as poor financial management can lead to a company’s total failure. For business owners in Cincinnati, however, there is a financial team eager to bring their expertise to the table.
Founded in 2013 by Todd Pfister and Thomas Paquette, TP4 Advisors is a full-service management and consulting firm that provides experienced counsel in back-office accounting, high-level bookkeeping, CFO guidance and advisory services. The firm helps clients take their businesses to the next level across the Midwest and in Florida.
“Our goal is to help business owners understand what’s beyond the horizon,” Todd Pfister, TP4 Advisors Partner, says. “We’re essentially in the passenger seat, providing support as owners navigate financial challenges. We then help them make the best decisions to benefit their companies.”
Armed with a team of dedicated financial professionals, TP4 Advisors serves a variety of industries, including manufacturing, real estate, hospitality, technology/IT, construction, logistics and professional service firms. These companies have revenues that range from $1 million to $50 million. The firm also works with nonprofits.
“We’re not tied to any specific industry,” Pfister says. “We’re able to pivot from client to client while maintaining the same level of efficiency and results.”
Its efficiency and results set TP4 Advisors apart from other financial advising firms.
“We do today’s work today,” says Tom Paquette, TP4 Advisors Partner. “We don’t wait until the end of the month or quarter or year to review finances. By working as we go, we’re able to find, analyze and fix small issues before they become major problems. When we help clients stay on top of their books, we’re helping them get faster results. In turn, they’re able to give their customers the best bang for their buck.”
“We want to help owners understand the impact numbers have on their businesses,” Pfister adds. “We equip them with really good data so they can accomplish their goals.”
Collaboration is a key component of TP4 Advisors’ success. They work with their clients to build solid financial foundations.
“A lot of companies — whether they’re growing rapidly or in distress — are missing the processes and metrics used to measure their business,” Paquette notes. “We help them form a foundation they can build on.”
In addition to serving their customers, TP4 Advisors is committed to doing good in their communities. In 2023 they hosted several networking events for Cincinnati business owners. Highlighting industry trends, these events share ways to discover new opportunities, and explain how to build supportive environments that foster a sense of community to learn and grow together.
“These events provide a platform for like-minded individuals to exchange ideas, share insights and cultivate partnerships that can fuel growth and innovations,” says Kayleigh Wagner, TP4 Advisors Marketing Coordinator.
The final event of 2023, titled “Understanding and Increasing the Value of Your Business,” will occur Wednesday, Nov. 29, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Kenwood Country Club.
At its core, TP4 Advisors is about helping people. Both Pfister and Paquette take pride in the close working relationship they have with their clients and colleagues. Those bonds, along with the exceptional level of financial advice and personalized service, allow TP4 Advisors to continue building financial foundations for sustainable growth.
