Corporate Performance Group Background
After 18 years at Arthur Young, predecessor of Ernst & Young, providing management advisory services to large corporations, Chris White formed Corporate Performance Group (“CPG”) in 1989 to provide mid-market companies in Oklahoma and Arkansas access to the same caliber of business advisory and business transaction (M&A) services typically available only to larger companies.
Members of the Corporate Performance Group Team are experienced business leaders and advisors combining extensive functional and industry expertise. Building on the team’s extensive experience, CPG gives companies and nonprofits in Oklahoma and Arkansas access to the same caliber of strategic planning, business advisory, and M&A services typically available only to Fortune 500 companies.
Corporate Performance Group has helped hundreds of business owners develop strong organizations and improve performance. We have also helped more than fifty business owners successfully sell or transition ownership when they exit their company.
We have celebrated as our clients won many prestigious awards including three National Quality Awards (the Malcolm Baldrige Award), recognition in Inc. magazine top company listings and best place to work awards. We have also helped many business owners successfully exit their business and transition into the next stage of their life, be it a new business venture or retirement.
For most business owners, their company is their largest asset and probably represents 75% or more of their personal wealth. Even if a business owner never plans to sell their company, they need to understand what drives the value of their company. We not only help business owners understand the factors that drive company value – we also provide specialized support to maximize company value.
We are proud that more than 80% of our clients have come from referrals from existing or former clients.
