You’ll win. We guarantee it.
We unconditionally guarantee that our clients will grow their sales and profits.
Most, but not all, of our clients are manufacturing, service and distribution firms in Pennsylvania and Ohio.
Each is a solid private company that for one reason or another got stuck. Sales stopped growing. Competitors started eating away at their margins. Maybe the bad economy sent the company backwards.
An entrepreneurial system for entrepreneurs
Trep Business Development transforms manufacturing, service and distribution companies into aggressive growth firms. We provide tools, experience and leadership that will change the way you look at your business and your entrepreneurial thinking forever.
Trep does not charge for time, we charge for results. We are not consultants; we are partners. We do everything alongside you – the entrepreneur – diagnosing and fixing your company’s underlying problems. Then we stay with you, to ensure that sales not only rebound, but also exceed your goals.
Proven over two decades
We use an approach that our founder – entrepreneur and investor, Gene Kirila – has refined over two decades to launch three successful companies and to help accelerate the growth of many others.
To put it simply, early in his entrepreneurial career Gene started recording what worked and what didn’t. He repeated – and then refined – the proven tactics, from business development to sales strategy, and from intellectual property development to marketing. He hired experts to see if they could accelerate growth, and adjusted his system to incorporate validated practices.
The end result is a system born in the trenches, tested under both extreme crisis and extreme opportunities. It is a proven operating system for companies with sales between $5 million and $50 million.
Trep focuses on the critical elements that propel – or derail – the growth of a private company like yours. It focuses your attention on the details that matter most. It helps you run circles around the elephant-like giant companies that surround you, while keeping your company focused on what you do best.
You don’t install Trep. You live by it.
Since every firm – and every entrepreneur – is unique, we work with you to adapt Trep to your firm. As your firm grows and your competitive position shifts, we are by your side to further refine your version of this proven system.
Our system works works. It combines specific disciplines, a management philosophy, a series of reports, and a way of managing employees. It also includes the personal participation of the principals of our firm – each of whom has been in your shoes, and has personally taken companies through an aggressive growth cycle.
We will be by your side, ready not only to help but also to provide a second set of eyes to spot both opportunities and obstacles that you might have missed.
Trep is not for every firm, or every entrepreneur. We are careful to only bring this operating system to those teams mostly likely to profit significantly from it. But we are happy to meet personally with any passionate entrepreneur, to determine whether Trep might be a good fit with your firm.
“Gene has led us to a true growth strategy in a 30 year old business that many considered stagnant. We are on a path of excitement that once was only filled with hope, and now we are running toward the goal. The fun is back.”
