What has allowed Richard Gabel to be an effective consultant is the breadth of his education and experience. His under graduate degree is in marketing and his graduate degree is in finance. Prior to going into general management, Gabel held senior level positions in treasury, business development, marketing, and strategic planning. In general management, he had responsibility for all business functions.
Gabel’s work experience ranges from senior level corporate staff of a Fortune 200 company, to President of a start-up joint venture.
Concerning strategic planning, Gabel worked with Michael Porter and his consulting company, the Monitor Group, when Porter was retained by Eaton Corporation to structure their strategic planning process. Gabel was the in-house subject matter expert on this project. At a
corporate level, Gabel was responsible for the strategic plan with the Vice President of Planning and Strategic Development, whom he reported to. At a division level, he was the go to person for interceding in business units that needed a strategic extreme makeover. He would develop turnaround plans for distressed businesses and then take over the unit to implement the plan.
As a business owner, Gabel’s consulting work has been with small business exclusively. His appetite for working with large businesses has been satisfied and he now looks for opportunities to help small businesses grow. He is working only with small businesses that have growth potential and need help charting the course to make that happen.
