WHO WE ARE
Originally started in 1994 as a compliment to MBA classmates' need for backroom operations for their start-up enterprises, we hatched after graduating from Babson College, as marketing and financial consultants.
EL Malinowski Consulting Co. has grown to support entrepreneurs, small businesses and mid-sized companies in all areas of business operations to support the growing need for developing brand awareness, FP&A and business planning for presentation to venture capitalist and lenders alike.
ELM Consulting parlayed accounting, financial analysis and marketing into a business management consulting model which has proven results in its ability to predict trends, seek profitable niches and promote markets for several businesses throughout the New England area.
In the past 30 years, we have brought several products to national retail markets, giving us great pride in seeing entrepreneurial efforts expand through grit, strategy and hard work. From dog treats to toothbrush heads to battery testing equipment, we have put the products on national retail shelf space or incorporated in corporate safety procedures, creating a more versatile product stream even in today's changing environment.
In 2012, EL Malinowski Consulting moved its base of operations to Florida, thus becoming a national company by working with clients in multiple states. We have kept our strategic focus in the areas of accounting, marketing and business management, but narrowed our services primarily to back-office accounting and small business taxation in the Tampa/St. Petersburg/Orlando area.
Unlike most firms, EL Malinowski Consulting prides itself on being a beacon of knowledge and showing how the Accounting Department can become more than just a cost center. With the right attitude, conscientious diligence, and leadership, the accounting department, and its Controller and CFO, can become a cost saver, thus a revenue generator!
EL Malinowski Consulting has developed and demonstrated financial analytical functions proven useful in determining cost containment effectiveness, financial statement analysis, and determined revenue model variables through market trend analysis. These models have slashed over $1M in cost overruns for R/E property managers, celebrity hospitality concerns and other businesses who had not adequately utilized FP&A models to full advantage.
Starting with a well-planned accounting system, anticipating growth before it occurs, and providing for expandable productivity can save time and money, as well as assist in best practices for tax planning and preparedness into a company's growth in the future. Having a clear understanding of CoSO and SOX, as well as GAAP makes for better planned Accounting processes from the start.
An advanced M/S Office Suite operator and QuickBooks and SAGE expert, ELM Consulting has been instrumental in setting up productive accounting, inventory, cost containment and job costing systems for start-up companies in construction, manufacturing, retail, service and professional environments.
We are also teachers! We have been able to train new staff to the benefits of the QB or SAGE accounting systems. Report Analysis and understanding the numbers and trends are very helpful to the new entrepreneur, and we are able to not just do the work, but teach the concepts.
See how our staff can be a beacon of knowledge for your business needs, as your company grows into the future.
