Michael Tory
CEO, Ondra

"The support we received from Continental Investors in late 2008/early 2009 was invaluable. It focused on three main areas, first reinforcing and backing our belief that the financial crisis had created the opportunity for a bold new business model; second, in then helping us to craft an ambitious but realistic business plan since frankly the first iteration we showed to them would not have worked - the input and advice we received on this was essential to ensuring we could build a profitable and scalable business that would therefore be sustainable for our clients and staff; and finally in the early years we were faced as all new firms are with a number of pivotal decisions and, in every case, Phil was both available and engaged with us, sharing a lifetime of strategic and practical experience that helped us make some very wise decisions we could not have made without that support. We are very grateful to Phil and his firm and every year we send them their dividend check with a big smile!"
