“The main reason I joined AdvisoryCloud is my desire to help other companies. Another reason is the opportunity to enhance my own skills by interacting with other board members who have different areas of expertise and qualities I might be able to leverage.
When Stan joined AdvisoryCloud, he was looking for opportunities with large, middle-market companies that are revenue-generating in the areas of financial services, real estate, or manufacturing. He was also interested in consulting and professional services, where he could leverage his prior experience as a partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers and Ernst & Young.

“AdvisoryCloud’s onboarding process was straightforward and seamless. I appreciated the chance to speak with someone on the phone, as I built my profile and began searching opportunities.
