Phil and David’s Story


Both David Wolfskehl and Phil Whitman worked with CPA firms. David discovered Phil while researching leaders on LinkedIn and requested a connection. Together, they developed a great, professional relationship. For five years they met for lunches, mentor discussions and worked together on a few joint business deals.

Phil shared a vision for creating a larger business and David saw an opportunity to help build out the processes and people to bring this vision to reality. So, they decided to come together and form C-Suite Impact to create magic. They went from two solopreneurs to building an organization of 50 people. Working together allows greater value and deep expertise to firms who are seeking to grow their profitability, add services to their customers, and need help with their business succession planning.
