“I am Phyllis Ludwig, and I founded Ludwig Business Consultants on March 1, 2002. It was my birthday, and I started the business for a few reasons. First, as an experienced CPA, I knew I had a lot to offer and could make a greater impact on society by consulting with multiple clients instead of working in a traditional CFO role for one company. The second reason, my mission, was to enhance the image of the professional woman; to pave the way; to break the glass ceiling.”
“During our first ten years, I grew the breadth of the consultation practice. I expanded from taxation and small business clients to mid-market companies in need of higher accounting-level services. Looking back, I realize that it took a 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.”
“Since then, we have grown with the changes in technology and the world, bringing our standards of excellence to comprehending each shift and using that knowledge to help our clients excel in their business goals. Our team truly strives to empower our clients to succeed.”
This history highlights that at the foundation of LBC is a highly credentialed and highly regarded CPA/MBA business owner with a drive for success and a commitment to excellence. These values are the fabric of our company culture at Ludwig Business Consultants.
