Business Owners: Using CoreValue to Capture and Build Enterprise Value --Use Cases
Jim Lewis, Owner Harvey & Lewis Opticians
For 120 years, Harvey & Lewis Opticians has been providing the greater Hartford, CT area with quality eye care. Jim Lewis, owner of Harvey & Lewis, wanted to help his company grow from a ‘mom-and-pop’ company, to a larger, more professionally-managed enterprise so someday he could remove himself from the day-to-day operations. In order to do so, Jim needed a ‘playbook’ that he and his team could follow – to make the leap and ensure the business would grow and have value well beyond him.

As a 2-year old start-up manufacturer of ultra-precise optics and systems for airborne vision systems, President Flemming Tinker was looking for a roadmap to help him scale his business. CoreValue Software helped Flemming and his business partner develop a plan to move the business forward – making it scalable, less prone to errors, more enjoyable, better performing, and ultimately, a valuable, transferrable company.

But with CoreValue, Jill now understands that she needs to transfer the value from her to her business.
