High-growth companies often struggle to build the financial, operational, and strategic infrastructure that enables them to scale and grow. In 2009, Bob Achettu envisioned forming a group of entrepreneurial-minded, technically skilled professionals who would help companies craft best-in-class business foundations, implement sound processes and strategy, and empower leaders to focus on doing what they do best: building great companies. Drawing upon his experience in private equity and Big 4 Consulting with PwC, Bob founded Accelerated Growth Advisors to help entrepreneurs execute their vision.
As an entrepreneur and investor himself, Bob brings the unique capability of speaking the language of both founders and stakeholders, while being compassionate and transparent. He interfaces with and advises, CEOs, owners, senior management and board members regarding various strategy decisions and tactics to help them successfully navigate within their industry. His expertise includes the evaluation of business plan viability, advising on financing and debt restructuring strategies, and implementing accelerated growth initiatives.
With over 15 year of experience in financially-focused advisory roles across a wide-array of industries, he brings a wealth of experience providing enduring solutions to companies and their boards. Bob holds an undergraduate degree from DePaul University and an MBA from the University of Notre Dame. In his free time, Bob enjoys cycling Chicago’s lakefront and spending time with his wife and three young children.
