Our Story

GROW: The Family Business Advisors, created when consultants Barb Dartt, Stephanie Edsall, Mike Fassler and John Williams, who had been working together for over a decade in prior consulting firms, decided to become entrepreneurs themselves. 

We have a passion for advising family businesses and are committed to collaboration and the growth of our own skills and of our clients’. Our alignment on core professional values made the decision to start our own firm a very easy choice.
