Welcome, whether you’re a first-time, or long-time, reader. Our circulation continues to expand. No one is providing the BV Industry with the range of experience and perspective we do. Our commitment is that you get more out of reading this newsletter than the time you put into it.

Gale Crosley, consultant to BV practices on business development issues, returns with insight on effectively adding services to your mix. We interviewed Bill Barrett for a look at the concept of an ‘integrated’ practice. We’ve found and reviewed for you a terrific book on how to keep yourself out of hot water when it comes to hiring, managing and firing practices. Finally, we talk about our new National BV Benchmark Survey and some of the questions it answers.

As always, we invite your comments. If there’s a topic you’d like to see covered, let us know.
