Gray Eagles Consulting Group
The Gray Eagles are a group of senior executives who have had very successful
corporations or private business careers. They now have the time to use their extensive
business, marketing, engineering, and manufacturing experience to advise clients on new
or existing product analysis, evaluation, development and program planning. The group’s
expertise lies mainly within internal combustion engines (gasoline and heavy fuels) and the
products they power: motorcycles, lawn and garden, marine, and military vehicles.
The consulting process is straightforward: listen well, ask the right questions, gain the
confidence of your team, assimilate information, and quickly develop a situational analysis
to enhance the probability of success. After the initial analysis phase, additional effort may
be expended in the areas of: financial analysis and planning; product planning; and mergers/
acquisitions/strategic alliances. We work with management teams in a way that gets them,
and keeps them, involved in the problem solving process.
The Gray Eagles are ready to work with you in advancing your existing product lines,
developing new products, or analyzing your current operations.
