The Yar Group – experts at turnaround, new product and new market development, and fractional leadership (CEO, CCO, COO, CMO). For restructuring high-tech, medical device manufacturing and life science companies, no one is better, faster or more efficient than us.
Because companies don’t always understand the root cause of their issues. Often, they only attack symptoms – stalled sales, manufacturing delays, or regulatory issues. Your organization will be stronger with our outside perspective. Because we’ve been there – we’ve faced the problems you’re facing. Let the Yar Group help get you positioned to reestablish your momentum.
Founder Rick Thomson’s early career on Wall Street gave him a thorough understanding of research and critical financials. Moving into sales and marketing, he developed corporate account and distribution experience with medical device manufacturers and hospitals. His operational expertise came from managing the turnaround of circuit board manufacturing, contract manufacturing, medical device start-up and medical device companies. He’s helped take firms to $1 billion in revenue, with his sweet spot in the $10 to $200 million range.
The Yar Group excels in translating data from engineers and scientists into information that marketing, sales and financial leaders can understand – and take action upon. That’s what sets us apart from other turnaround, manufacturing and marketing consultants and fractional CEOs.We believe that collaboration and tearing down business silos is the best way to create operational efficiency.
Our holistic approach quickly uncovers the bottlenecks, stumbling blocks and root causes standing in the way. We nurture and position the internal resources a firm has at the ready – human, financial and operations – and discover which to bring in from outside. Because our clients are engaged leaders and focused teams who understand the extent of how much can be accomplished together.
