What type of businesses do you work with?

Generally, our clients have reached 10 to 250  employees and $2M+ in revenue but we’ve worked with smaller and larger clients in many industries.  Business leaders who are open to new ideas, desire better results personally and professionally, and really want to drive change in their organization are ideal. 

What is it like to work with OPG?

We know every business is unique so we don’t take a one-size-fits-all approach to serving our clients.  Each engagement is unique.  Together we will hone in on the solution that is right for you in our initial discussions.  OPG knows that the needs of your business will evolve, and we will change with you.  You aren’t locked into any service or solution. 

How do I know what services are right for me?

It’s our responsibility to help determine what tools or services will give you the results you need.  As we get to know each other during the discovery phase, we will identify the issues you face and how best to tackle them. 

Who We Serve

OPG focuses on small professional services businesses with 10+ employees and $2M+ in revenue and have worked with many industries. We work with local clients in the North Georgia area and are proud to offer virtual services across the US.
