The Resultants team of Business Advisors hasn’t just done it, we’ve lived it. Each of our unique experiences combined with a proven track record of helping move companies further, faster is what makes working with our team unlike any other.
As you can see, we like to have fun! We even made it one of our Core Values. Keep reading to learn more about The Resultants Team.
Running your business is like racing a sailboat or at least, this is how I view an entrepreneur running their business. As owners, we are out to effectively compete, but we can’t do it alone. We need a team of highly capable individuals, all understanding their roles and knowing when to contribute to the overall effort. These abilities help create the power and momentum to move through the water as efficiently and effectively as we can, preventing the drag we see in other boats. And what a rush! This is what the entrepreneurial spirit is all about.
Our businesses must be fast and nimble. The drag is what hurts our growth, development and the chance to build value over time. When I work with owners and their leadership teams, I help facilitate that racing team dynamic by building out the operating system that can propel the organization forward, past the barriers and past traditions of the way it’s always been done.
My past business experiences in owning, building and transitioning out of half a dozen businesses created agility… a skill I help my client leadership teams develop. My wife and I have managed each and every one of our varied businesses so we understand the family side as well as the ownership-team dynamic. We’ve been there in the trenches, lived it, failed and grown.
Having coached entrepreneurial owners for 20 years helps me to facilitate teams to better manage through the winds of change that hit us, forcing us to course correct. I persistently push teams to go further. I have a passion for business and an excitement for entrepreneurship. When I engage with another business team, my mind is light years ahead, envisioning what that organization can be and valuing it at a potential that isn’t even there yet.
I also believe in giving back to our community through acts of service and have been a part of many boards, including Boy Scouts, Rotary, UW-River Falls Foundation and St. Croix Valley Foundation. I am a huge fan of the Wisconsin Badgers and Green Bay Packers and I have always competed in team sports (basketball, volleyball, sailing), all of which formed my business team mentality and my personal core values.
Steve Wilcox, President
Senior Business Advisor | EOS Implementer™ | Certified Value Builder™ Coach
My entire career has been focused around growth and I am passionate about helping people grow, whether it be key members of my management teams or client owners and their organizations. Leaving the Fortune 200 world after nearly two decades of sales and management leadership, I had a single goal in mind – to bring the same level of business expertise enjoyed by large firms to small and medium-sized businesses in order to help them go further, faster!
Fast forward to today where The Resultants’ simple yet powerful approach can help companies achieve exponential growth and owners can experience real freedom and realize their dreams. At the core of much of our work with owners and their teams involves being an advocate for the best interests of the business. We help companies clarify a singular vision for the organization, align around that vision, build a plan to reach their dreams, then execute that plan and drive growth. As one member of a client leadership team said, “… we have gotten more done in the last six months with Chad and The Resultants than we did the previous two years on our own!”
I am a graduate of the University of Minnesota and a current member of the University of Minnesota Alumni Association Board. When not with my family or working, I’m an avid golfer, newshound, active mentor and a passionate fan of Gopher football and basketball.
Senior Business Advisor | EOS Implementer™ | Certified Value Builder™ Coach
A passion for helping people and organizations grow and prosper is what drives me. Every person and organization face challenges and obstacles that stand in the way of progress toward their goals. I’ve faced those challenges, stumbled and grown. Using my experience to help others overcome these challenges, grow faster and go further is deeply satisfying.
During my career in business, I’ve been blessed with opportunities to provide leadership inside organizations as well as increasing leadership capacities from outside the organization as a consultant and facilitator. My time inside organizations in strategic leadership roles has provided a broad range of experience including the roles of Vice President, General Manager and Chief Operations Officer. I’ve been in varied industries including insurance, manufacturing and telecommunications and served in leadership roles in human resources, operations and general management. My work as a business consultant and facilitator with small and large organizations, both for-profit and non-profit, has provided understanding the challenges leaders face and what it takes to be successful.
I have enjoyed working with The Resultants since 2013 as a Business Advisor because their values and goals align so well with my own. The Resultants help make big dreams a reality bringing rigor and discipline into the business to help it go further faster.
When I’m not working, I love spending time with my family and enjoy an active role in community leadership including my church, health care and local non-profits. I’m an alumnus and fan of the University of Minnesota and enjoy the rivalry with my Badger friends across the river in Wisconsin.

To have the privilege of leading, facilitating and collaborating with high performing teams is one of the most important roles I am responsible for as a Business Advisor. I really enjoy helping others work out the best solutions and outcomes for their business and share in the success of their renewed and robust leadership.
My corporate career has included working with Fortune 500 companies such as Coca-Cola, Philip Morris, McDonald’s, Intel and Wrigley across 5 continents and in over 60 countries. Throughout my career, my primary roles have been in leadership, senior general management, strategic marketing and client services. This diverse experience teaches you how to quickly adapt to changing cultures, economies and overcome all manner of obstacles.
My experience as an Intrapreneur has helped me to identify with and enjoy working with entrepreneurs and their leadership teams, where I can scale those learnings and enjoy making a real difference for people that sincerely and genuinely appreciate hard work and effort. When you partner with a team of like-minded business leaders, we share a joint success that exponentially builds to much greater results.
This is the reason I have partnered with The Resultants. Their firm not only embodies the professionalism I too believe in, but they truly understand not just the “what” but also the all-important “why” of serving teams. They care.
Born in England, I graduated from East Hertfordshire University with a Business Degree, majoring in Marketing. Whilst my work has taken me to the Middle East, Austria, Germany and the States, and my family is globally spread, my wife’s family roots are tied to Minnesota and so home is the Twin Cities.
My passion is coaching both in business and sport. I was a semi-professional soccer player for many years and went on to coach girls and boys at all levels and now do the same with referees. So when it comes to border battles and football (or fútbol), I am a supporter of Tottenham Hotspur,a team I started with and have supported for over 40 years.

“Thank you for giving me back my life. Now I know I make a big difference at work but even more importantly, I’m making a difference at home. My wife and kids want to thank you too.”
This is one of my favorite comments by a leadership team member we’ve been honored to serve. This person was struggling to find significance in the work world, hitting a ceiling in his position at the same time the business hit its own ceiling. He felt that leaving the team was his only alternative but once we peeled back the onion of various issues and established a safe environment from which to strategize and execute, his team began to move themselves and the business forward at a remarkable pace.
I enjoy working as a team at The Resultants to establish that safe, honest platform from which others can develop into strong leaders. My strengths are learning, researching and collecting as much business strategies and entrepreneurial experiences I can to help others in their quest to transform to a more valuable business – no matter what your definition of value is. As part of building out strong teams of great people, I allow strengths to thrive, individuals to become fearless leaders and teams to gain the insight needed to drive any organization.
I look at every business we serve as having its own unique personality. What powers this uniqueness, as well as what can hold a business back, is found within that personality. Business development means on-going, continuous improvement, just like climbing a ladder, building more value at every rung.
When it comes to developing a business, I am in my comfort zone. Who wouldn’t be after creating, managing and transitioning seven businesses and working side-by-side with my husband? I understand the inner workings of family and business relationships. My years as an entrepreneur, family business advisor, HR certified professional and teacher-trainer have blended to form the business coach I am today.
An avid reader, writer and flavored coffee drinker, I enjoy creating people strategies that build momentum. As a retired dancer and fitness trainer, I am now quietly dancing to the beat of my own drum in the privacy of my home! However, I am a Wisconsin Badger fan through and through so I still dance publicly during 5th quarter.

One of the biggest challenges I hear from entrepreneurs isn’t simply finding the right people or strategies, it’s growing their business without completely burning out. To grow sustainably – and be able to take a week off without worrying about putting out fires – you need to treat your business like you’re preparing to sell it. While this may sound like a simple concept, it requires experience, foresight and the collaboration of all team members to implement successfully.
The Resultants don’t simply implement EOS® … we are the team behind your team and we hold you to fearless leadership. For example, a client that was previously self-implementing EOS® struggled with growth flat-lining their profits. Within three months of leading their implementation, we had restructured their organization and niched down to a higher value client and service offering. This allowed them to charge more and standardize their delivery, putting them on track to go from two years of barely black to a target of 20%. Equally as important, it brought passion and ease into the organization, attracting “A” players to their team!
That is exactly what I love about helping entrepreneurs and leadership teams accomplish.
Since leaving my corporate consulting job in 2014, I’ve had the privilege of supporting entrepreneurs and helping leaders break through unnecessary overwhelm and scale up their businesses, without giving up their vision or all of their free time.
I believe when we create a culture of authentic leadership within a company, we not only increase the bottom line, we allow everyone to work from their “genius”, creating a strong culture of empowerment and engagement. This generates a positive ripple effect within our families, across our customers, and throughout our communities, impacting the world far beyond our reach.
An adventurer and life-long learner, I’ve lived in four countries, explored approximately forty, started two companies and worked with top international companies in the areas of management consulting, business services, change management, human resources and higher education.
Following the passing of my mother in 2014, I decided to return to the Midwest to be near family. I couldn’t be happier with the quality of life, sense of community, and access to yoga, cross-country skiing and time in the woods. If I’m not outdoors, you’ll find me on my yoga mat or baking bread. If you want to get me talking, ask me about my son, Arlo, my favorite country (that’s like choosing a favorite child), or our cabin up in Cable, WI.

Throughout my business career, I have always had a passion for helping people grow both professionally and personally. There is nothing more gratifying than serving in this space because it not only improves the chances for success, but it also greatly improves one’s outlook on life. There is no greater good than working with and alongside people in business and in leadership.
People are the most valuable asset a business can possess and my goal is to work with management to ensure the right people are in the right seats. Without that key component, an organization will have a difficult time achieving its strategic goals. We want the best for our clients which includes having the people in the proper place to enable the business to prosper and flourish.
In over 35 years of experience in the financial services industry, I have been fortunate to work for several successful banking organizations. I have had the privilege of being a CFO for various sized banks and bank holding companies with a strong focus on managing and improving overall profitability which drives company value. During my tenure at these organizations, I have been a part of executive management teams and life in the C-suite world. I understand the difficult decisions that leadership teams must make in all facets of business on a daily basis.
I am a true believer of Traction®. I lived and breathed EOS® as a CFO. My experiences have enabled me to see how the EOS process works in real-life, from that side of the desk, which is rare among EOS Implementers™. When I was introduced to The Resultants, it was an instant fit – from core values to mission, vision and purpose. Their “Team Behind Your Team” approach is a powerful combination and unique in the marketplace. Simply put, The Resultants help leaders become the best they can be and experience the full potential of their business. Working together with leadership teams using an operating system that’s shared by all, ensures your teams are on the same page, speaking the same language and getting measurable results.
I am a graduate of Luther College in Decorah, Iowa. My wife, children and grandchildren are my true passion. I enjoy golf, downhill skiing, exercise and spending time at my cabin in Northern Wisconsin. I believe in giving back within my community and have volunteered with many non-profit organizations. Even though I live in Wisconsin, I am a die hard Vikings, Twins and Gophers fan. Yes, that means that I am eternally conflicted!
Business Advisor | Fractional CFO | Certified Value Builder™ Coach
Principal at Moen Consulting, LLC
For the past 25+ years, I’ve enjoyed working with visionary owners and entrepreneurs helping to grow small businesses. I believe communication is the key ingredient for successful organizations that want to improve, lead and deal with the many changes and challenges we face in the world of business today. I work within a role that manages the many communication links an organization must have, both internally and externally, to ensure organizational clarity and consistency.
I have a continuous improvement mindset and a passion for change. Simon Sinek said it best when he wrote, “Systems and processes are essential to keep the crusade going, but they should not replace the crusade.” As Integrator, I manage the day-to-day operations of the business; focusing on the development, implementation and execution of the systems and processes essential to achieving the company’s goals, mission and vision.
Prior to joining The Resultants in 2006, my career was centered in the photo industry where I had the privilege of working with creative teams and entrepreneurial owners. My background includes managing the operations, marketing, and service/product development of privately owned, portrait studios and photo labs. It was an exciting time as the industry was transformed by digital imaging technology. Photography is still one of my creative outlets.
My passion outside of work centers around my family, the great outdoors, and a Half-Arabian, Palomino horse named Jasper. My son recently graduated from UW-Madison, so of course I’m a Badger fan! Growing up in Eastern Wisconsin, I am also a die-hard Green Bay Packer fan… I’ve been known to tailgate with the best of them.
COO | Integrator
Building strong professional and personal relationships is my primary focus at The Resultants. I believe providing a personal touch is an important part of serving clients and making them feel like part of the family. Going the extra mile is what I strive for with every client.
Prior to coming onboard with The Resultants, I worked at a small life settlement company in St. Louis Park, Target Corporation in Minneapolis and a family law practice in Golden Valley. I studied at the Minnesota School of Business, where I earned a Paralegal and Legal Assistant Certificate.
Outside the office, my passion is running (literally going the extra mile). I have finished several marathons including Twin Cities (5x), Las Vegas, Chicago (2x) and New York. I am also a coach for the Prescott, WI chapter of Girls on the Run. When I’m not training, time with family and friends is extremely important to me. I also enjoy just about anything that will get me outside or on the water. While I may live in Wisconsin, I grew up in Minnesota and I am a die-hard Minnesota sports fan. Twins, Vikings, Wild, Timberwolves and Gophers – I cheer for them all!
Client Account Manager
Marketing is one of those things every company knows it needs but most tend to push to the side to better focus on hitting sales goals, hiring and recruiting, improving operational efficiencies, etc. One thing I’ve really come to realize in the last few years as a Client Account Manager with a background in Marketing is how important it is to every aspect of a business. If you’re planning on attracting new customers to hit your sales goals, how are you going to get in front of them? If your company is having a difficult time recruiting new top talent, what kind of an image are you portraying to the public? Marketing is so much more than just “something we’ll get to when we have time” or designing an ad or flyer. What I genuinely enjoy is being able to provide some of that insight to my clients.
I am an active learner with a very high-energy personality so I’m always looking for new ways to do things and different approaches to solving an issue. My advertising and marketing experience tells one story – what you don’t know is I’ve also dabbled in lawn care, worked as a server and bartender for 10 years, attempted retail (not my thing) and am handy with power tools. I’m always game for exciting challenges that will test my abilities and let me use my experiences to their full potential.
Sitting still is not my forte so when I’m not at work, I’m usually chasing after my two boys and/or two dogs, re-painting the kitchen for the fourth time, competing in runs across varying distances or trying out the newest restaurant. I am also very active at my church where I teach at the preschool level, which is basically just an opportunity for me to sing and dance without judgement.
Katie Pierce, MBA
Marketing Manager | Client Account Manager
I believe a successful business requires strong ethical leaders, thoughtfully constructed business processes and a healthy work-life balance. From day to day tasks to building and maintaining business and community relationships, every company needs an individual strategy complete with supporting tactics and measurements. I take pride in supporting and contributing to leadership teams who recognize not only these aspects but also strive to continuously develop and value their people.
In my 10 + years of working for a multi-divisional corporation, I’ve managed transitions and built an inventory of experiences and knowledge about businesses and people. The Resultants are truly charting the course for so many, both personally and professionally and I feel blessed to be a part of it. I really connect with their Core Focus and Core Values – it’s evident they have worked hard to create an impactful culture and they know how important it is for other businesses. The team that rocks! Outside of working hours, you will find me connecting outdoors. I’m very passionate about sustaining the rivers and waterways we all enjoy. From organizing teams to clean the shores of the St. Croix River to always carrying a litter bag while on nature hikes, I’m committed to protecting our environment. In the summer and fall, chances are I’m in a boat or kayak, hiking a waterfall or exploring the Apostle Islands with my best friend. In the winter, we enjoy skiing the Rockies, attending concerts and are always in search of a Foosball table. A great challenge! But sometimes, I even win!
“In wilderness is the preservation of the world.” ~ Henry David Thoreau
Executive Assistant | Client Account Manager
I have 25 years of bookkeeping experience serving clients in several different industries, each one with a unique set of criteria and solutions. I am my best self when I’m collaborating with a group towards a common goal and I consider myself fortunate to be a part of this dynamic Resultants team.
I truly enjoy working and problem solving with my clients. When I’m not working, I spend time at the Phipps Center for the Arts, where you can find me backstage or helping with lights and sound in the booth. Occasionally I find myself onstage too. I also love to spend time with my husband working in our gardens, rock hunting, traveling or on projects around our home. I have two daughters, the youngest of which is on the tennis team so I’ve recently developed a passion for the game. I’ve always been a fan of hockey – “Go Wild!”
“I love to be part of a team, because it’s more fun to go somewhere together.”
