Wingspan Thinking –

An exciting intersection of three worlds

  • Founder and CEO Chris McEvoy, armed with an MBA degree, worked for a Fortune 50 company where he learned respect for best practices and knowledge of how huge companies work and how to sell to them.
  • McEvoy led the company he founded for 17 years and grew to 350 employees, $70 million in revenues with a global marketing footprint. Growth was funded through bank loans and angel and venture capital investors. An international financial firm bought the company as a strategic acquisition.
  • Current academic thinking from Purdue University, a major research University named by Carnegie as one of the top 108 “very high research activity” institutions. McEvoy has been on the faculty for several years as a Continuing Lecturer in the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Certificate Program, open to any student at Purdue who might wish to commercialize an idea.

Three Basic Pillars of Every Successful Business

From the very beginning, Wingspan was founded with intimate knowledge and experience in the three pillars of every business—finance, marketing/sales, and operations/production. The mix of knowledge and wisdom combined with entrepreneurship, innovation and passion turns us into an active catalyst for our clients.

At Wingspan, we’re passionate about what we do and about our clients because we know what it takes to build a business—we’ve been there. We’ve lived in the trenches—we understand the daily struggles; having experienced the ups and downs and complexities of growing a company in many markets and having faced the same challenges and issues our clients encounter.

More importantly, we not only understand today’s business and leadership challenges in an ever-changing economy, but we also fully recognize being the one at the top can seem like the loneliest job in the world. But that’s where Wingspan brings even more value to our clients.

At the same time, we become a confidant to the CEO, someone with whom he or she can discuss any issue knowing that strict confidentially is always maintained. We provide encouragement when the CEO is feeling pressure; we provide strategy ideas when the CEO isn’t sure what to do. We never command, we only advise.

Time and time again, we hear from our clients that we’re not just about the business. Through our services, strategies and well thought out solutions, we strike a chord that offers them a calmness and stress-free environment they have not felt in quite some time. Simply, we are in the game, on their team, not on the sidelines watching the game unfold. We work alongside our clients, helping them build their strategic plan and charting their company’s future direction.

As the leader of your company, does your business have vision? Do you realize the potential of your employees? Are you building long-lasting relationships with your clients? What’s your unfair advantage? How will your company look in a year? In five years? Where might your company be vulnerable to disruptive innovation? How might your company become a disruptive innovator? If you intend to look just the same as you do now in ten years, you probably won’t be around.

Like the pilot of an airplane, you are ultimately in charge—you are responsible for the successes—and the failures. Do you have a flight plan? Do you have a flight controller, like Wingspan Thinking, who aids you in your journey along the way? Learn more about our Services, and how we can get you started in the direction of sustainable growth.
