Growth & Profitability Consulting

Strategy Development & Execution

Together, we’ll create specific initiatives that will advance your company toward a unified vision. The hallmark of our approach is simplicity, adaptability, and a heavy emphasis on sustained execution.



Business Development Embed Program

If you can't win it, you don't get to build it.

Our 12 month embed program creates extremely high win rates, allowing you to win far more than your share! You get to pick the clients and projects you want — instead of settling for the scraps. Equalizer9 works alongside you to train, plan, and coach. We embed with your team to implement tailored strategies on must-win projects. We are with you every step of the way to ingrain our Chase Less, Win More® principles into your company DNA.



Succession Planning

Set the stage for the next generation of leadership.

Developing a thorough succession plan will increase your business’s value and set the stage for the next generation of leadership. We guide succession planning conversations and help you navigate the toughest of transitions - trusting others with the business you put your heart and soul into.



Performance & Operational Effectiveness

Get on the path to higher profitability.

Want to improve your reputation for performance and drive more profits? Uncover why you’re consistently realizing profit fade on projects, having schedule overruns, seeing ongoing quality issues, or experiencing high rates of litigation on projects. Equalizer9 takes a deep dive into your operational practices to identify the root causes of your performance and operational issues — and then we work with you to implement high impact, corrective actions.


Talent Development

Chase Less Win More® Academy

Turn your people and your company into elite level revenue generators.

In the Commercial Construction Industry, we have to be highly effective in two primary functions: Getting Work and Doing Work. It’s that simple. And yet — 90% of firms are woefully inadequate in “Getting Work.”

The Chase Less Win More® Academy is a 3-6 month learning program designed specifically for doer-sellers, executives, and professional business developers in the construction industry. Start winning far more than your share. Your competitors will not know what hit them!

Talent Recruitment

Attracting & Finding Top-Tier Talent

Connecting you to the skilled team members you need.

We have a unique approach to recruiting services. Read below to see the Equalizer9 Talent Recruitment Difference. 

  • We Know The Industry. Each member of our Talent team has been in the construction business. We know what the roles require, who fits, and who doesn’t. We only represent construction companies; and we do not push candidates.
  • Our Size = Your Benefit. We have a small boutique search business, so we are not conflicted out like most executive search firms. 
  • We’re Connected. We have vast relationships with architects, engineers, and client owners. Other search firms just call around to other construction firms. We get prospects they do not. 
  • Access Our Fresh Pipeline. We target “exodus” markets like the Northeast, California, and the “Rust Belt” to create a new pipeline of talent. We don’t just recycle the same people from the same geographic pool.
  • Weekly Status Reports.  Your lead recruiter will send you a weekly update on who we have contacted and the status of each prospect. This allows you to adjust our search as needed. You will gain comfort in knowing “we are on it!”.

Hal did a magnificent job representing my brothers and I in the recent sale of our long held family business. He was a voracious advocate for our interests... We could not be more pleased with the value of the deal, and especially would recommend Hal as your agent.
