Co-Founder of Vista Consulting
Tim co-founded Vista Consulting in 2009, along with his partner Chad Dudley, with a vision to help plaintiff law firm owners reach their full potential. Tim has traditional CPA experience with local, regional, and national CPA firms. However, it is through Tim’s prior consulting practice that he found his passion. He has worked with many business owners assisting them with defining and attaining success in their business and personal lives. Developing a management philosophy with business owners along with the associated systems and processes that assist in delivering outstanding management to Vista’s client teams is Tim’s forte’.
Tim’s experience and interest allows him to assist Vista clients with developing a realistic vision of their firm into the future, creating a strategic plan to achieve that vision while working with firm owners in designing their desired lifestyle. From a technical standpoint, Tim assists Vista clients in reviewing firm tax entity structure, accounting systems analysis, and financial reporting. Tim also serves as Vista’s administrative officer.
Additionally, Tim is the managing partner of The McKey Business Group (MBG) CPAs. MBG is a small consulting CPA firm located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The firm only works for select businesses and the owners of businesses providing consulting services (building the roadmap for the future) as well as traditional CPA products. When working with Tim, there usually are “light bulb” moments…he calls them BFOs (a Blinding Flash of the Obvious). Sometimes, he says, business is just not that complicated. Tim’s ability to mentor successful business persons and gently push them to a new level of thinking contributes to Vista’s success.
Tim’s strategic vision for Vista has made a great contribution toward developing a team of consultants who take a comprehensive approach to working with their clients. Identifying and solving operational issues is not the only goal…enhanced profitability and having fun doing it is real success.
Personally, Tim has 2 daughters, Sarah (30) and Caroline (22), 2 granddaughters, Mary Grayson (MG) and Ryleigh, and 1 wife, Jodi. Jodi is also a part of Vista, assisting with bookkeeping and logistics. A self-proclaimed business nerd, Tim enjoys reading, pondering and discussing future business trends, models, and disruptive change, tennis, exercise, and the pursuit of the “abundant life”.
