March 1, 2022 marked the twentieth anniversary of the founding of Ludwig Business Consultants by president Phyllis Ludwig, and the firm celebrated with a wonderful gala on March 8.
In Phyllis’ own words: “Ludwig Business Consultants was founded on March 1, 2002. It was my 40th birthday. I started the business for a few reasons. First, I felt that as an experienced CPA, I had a lot to offer many people/business owners and could make a greater impact on society by consulting with multiple clients instead of working in a traditional CFO role for one company. That was my goal. The second reason, my mission, was to enhance the image of the professional woman; to pave the way; to break the glass ceiling.
“From launch to 10 years later, I grew the breadth of the consulting practice. I expanded from taxation and small business clients to mid-market companies who were in need of higher accounting level services. Looking back, I realize that it took a very long time to make the paradigm shift in the eyes of others from a female, mom, ‘bookkeeper’ to an experienced female professional. To arm myself with the credentials that I needed, I enrolled in and completed an Executive MBA at Temple University in 2005.
“I mention this history because it is important to understand that at the foundation of Ludwig Business Consultants is a highly credentialed and highly regarded CPA/MBA business owner with a drive for success and a commitment to excellence. These values have become part of the fabric of our culture today. “
