D. Brown Management Profile Picture

We exist to help contractors build stronger businesses for the next generation by leveraging talent, technology, and capital. A key measure of that success is profitable growth in all economic conditions.

Our target outcomes for advisory clients are 2-3X industry benchmarks including safety and risk.

Our Results: Profitably Growth in All Economic Conditions.


In the Great Recession of 2007-2008, most of our clients grew throughout. Sadly; a few did not. We learned a lot of valuable lessons from that experience and have grown stronger. During COVID-19, we applied many of those lessons-learned and all of our clients navigated those challenges effectively. 

We take pride in the ownership successions we've helped structure. Our approach is on having the right leadership talent in place post-transaction because profitable growth and strong cash flow are what ultimately pays for the transaction.  

Our target outcome for successions is that an already well-performing business continues to improve performance post-transaction creating security and returns for both the outgoing and incoming owners.


No matter how we are compensated for our services, we will act as if we are an equity partner in your business. We believe in strategic market choices supported by aggressive business and talent development balanced with deliberate operations and conservative financial management.

This focus is what ultimately improves every element of the Contractor Business ModelScoreboard. and helps contractors navigate each Stage of Growth

Our Principles for Creating Value in Careers, Projects, and Contracting
“As to methods, there may be a million and then some, but principles are few. The person who grasps principles can successfully select their own methods. The person who tries methods, ignoring principles, is sure to have trouble.” - Harrington Emmerson
10 Jugs of Wine - A Tale from Japan
Diffusion of personal responsibility can occur quickly on teams. Everyone must contribute. This is a simple tale from Japan that elegantly illustrates the point and includes how people react even when the failed results are clear.
Continuous Improvement - Takes or Saves Time
I am too busy to learn to improve the process! This statement is only funny because it is so true. It is one of the first mindsets you have to break within yourself and then within your team if you want to achieve consistent operational excellence.
