Shawn Halimi, Business Consultant
Business consulting and coaching capabilities are not necessarily measured by theoretical knowledge or academic degrees such as a PhD in business.Shawn Halimi came to the United States in 1980 with a BS degree in engineering from U.K. and opened a 1500 Sq. Ft. retail store in Los Angeles with no experience and very little money. By 1995 his business had grown into a regional chain of stores doing over one hundred million dollars per year in sales (in 1995 dollars) with over 300 employees. Due to the observation of the rapid expansion and success of his business, friends and local businesspeople started approaching Shawn with questions about problems encountered in their own business. This provided him with the opportunity to find his true self-realization in “helping business people succeed by improving their leadership and management skills.” By 1997 Shawn officially started his practice as a business management consultant and executive coach.

Since that time (except for one year when he worked for an international consulting firm to gain experience in working with fortune 500 companies), Shawn has been consulting owners and CEO’s of small to medium sized businesses in a variety of fields to improve their performance and bottom line, and to organize their businesses into professionally managed corporations. We combine your specific industry experience irrespective of the goods or services that you provide, with our unique management and leadership techniques to increase your sales and bottom line profitability dramatically, irrespective of your specific industry.
