Excellent. Brian is a hands-on guy and a straight shooter.
Marty Ochs | Founder
It's okay to be skeptical, but never cynical. Let the facts speak. Brian has helped our company several times. With his outside perspective, he ensured that each kaizen event stayed on track, bringing fresh ideas and keeping us focused on continuous improvement.
Gavin Bence | VP Operations
Brian’s knowledge and expertise that he shares opens many new avenues that has driven our entire staff in a positive direction.
Jeff Cripe | CEO
Brian greatly helped our company, opening up capacity and showing us how to look at processes with a constant eye for improvement. We were a great example of the "how we've always done things" mindset, and Brian showed us how looking at our processes from a different point of view, and aggressively seeking meaningful improvement via strategic change can transform our business. We highly recommend!
Kevin Weeks | Director of Operations
I have worked with Brian on a number of process improvement events. It is hard to believe that an “outsider” of our business could really drive change for the better. But there is great value of having an outside, impartial prospective that Brian brings when working him. We have had so many enlightening moments during our cross functional events that really got the core of issues and truly helped our teams understand how their actions impact others. Not only did we walk away with ways to improve, but even better than that, we came out a more educated, unified team who has a deeper appreciation for each other - and that value can’t be measured. We couldn’t have achieved that without Brian.
Keri Smith | Operations Management

Companies should choose SPL Consulting as a partner if they are definitely interested in evaluating processes for improvement. Especially as it relates to improving efficiency, improving capacity and driving immediate action, not action six months from now.
Travis Borchardt | VP Reg Affairs
The Improvements have really shown up in our financials.
John Frey | COO
Brian is the best investment I have ever made for my company. Investing in equipment can help grow capacity but without smooth operational processes and better communication, we honestly don’t take advantage of those investments and you have taught us “often we can do more with less ".
