About the Founder
Jeffrey “R” Rose is a CPA and the founder of Concerto, LLC. In early 2015, JR was pondering over the next chapter in his career after having just left his position at a startup where he felt he could no longer add his value to the new direction they were going. He has worked at a variety of companies including one of the largest service companies on the planet, a medium-sized regional financial services firm, a small company, a consulting business, along with several startups.
As JR pondered, he realized that the one commonality between all the good companies he had worked for was a quality leader at the top while his poorer experiences had bad leaders at the forefront. In realizing this, he decided to take a stab at building a company from the ground up based on making quality leadership the focus of his startup. JR had experienced leadership done right and done wrong. This school of hard knocks provided a very rounded education in experience that he felt would help him in ways no book learning could.
During his career, JR had the opportunity to see and analyze hundreds of companies’ financial statements and spend data. Additionally, he had consistently been considered an expert at analyzing contract and contract negotiations alike, so JR decided to focus on an idea that could incorporate both of his skill sets along with the general business experience he’d gained. In return, good leadership would come easy and thus Concerto, LLC was born!
As JR started to develop Concerto, certain important elements came to mind, including taking a great idea, adding integrity and honesty to it along with the belief that small and medium businesses are the economic backbone of this country, valuing and trusting employees while making sure they feel their value, and being a leader instead of a boss. These are the same elements that makeup Concerto today and will be the foundation of the company in its entirety.
