Bear Hill Advisory Group was formed in 2009 by Jack P. Healey feeding his passion to help businesses who are tackling difficult business problems. He leveraged his 16 years’ experience as an Assurance Partner in a CPA firm and 12 years as the EVP, Corporate Secretary, as as operational CFO of a highly acquisitive public company to identify the main drivers of success  for a business enterprise.  Using the skills acquired, lessons learned and a national network of professionals, he understands business transformation and how businesses operate and communicate.

 

He realized that most businesses could resolve their business issues if they learned to recognize problems early enough to address the root cause.  In 2010 he developed the Business Risk Diagnostic Model™ which assigned attributes to the development of risks from inception through loss of control.  

Core to Bear Hill Advisory Group is the ability to help the people and organizations which we come in contact.  It is not enough to provide ‘services’ to our clients, we strive to achieve sustainable and repeatable results.  We only work with organizations who are open to change and who need our expertise.  If we believe you would be better served by others, we will provide an introduction to one of our network partners.
