Charles E. Newdorf is owner and President of Touchstone Business Strategies, LLC.
Charlie works with business owners, their key personnel and external advisors in developing and implementing plans and programs that serve to help you understand the value of your business, improve that value by improving profitability and cash flow and then helping you realize that value through the sale of your business. The practice serves clients of various sizes and industry types. Clients include companies that are considered to be in a healthy condition, "turnaround" situations, and start-ups.

Charlie became a Certified Public Accountant in New Hampshire in 1979. He holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Accounting with highest honors, from Bentley University, Waltham, MA (1977). He has also successfully completed graduate level studies in more than a dozen courses in the areas of taxation, finance, and business administration.

Charlie has worked at a "Big 4" international accounting firm and as an Audit Supervisor for the State of New Hampshire where he managed multiple audit teams conducting financial and operational audits of various state agencies. From 1982 to 1990 he operated a CPA/consulting practice providing a variety of accounting and management advisory services to business start-ups, growing companies and acquisitions. During this period, his experience included several interim and full time CFO positions.

Charlie joined the corporate renewal firm of Altman and Company as a principal in 1990. In 1998 he left Altman and Company to start his own firm as co-founder of Trident Consulting Group. Both Altman and Company and Trident Consulting Group are management-consulting firms that provide turnaround, crisis management and debt restructuring services to distressed businesses. As a principal, he worked closely with a variety of industries where he provided consulting services and interim CFO services to successfully assist in turnaround strategy and implementation, crisis management, financial restructuring, creditor negotiations, business sale and acquisition issues, strategic growth initiatives, and various other business matters. Charlie became the President/Principal of Touchstone Business Strategies at the start of 2006.

Since 1990 Charlie has worked on more than 250 client engagements most of which involved a valuation, either in the form of collateral or the total business entity, all with the sale of the valued asset as the focus. He has also been directly involved in selling more than a dozen businesses or portions thereof. The valuations conducted have been used in determining the value to be realized in an orderly wind-down of a business, the liquidation value of a discontinued enterprise, the fair market value for the sale of the business, succession planning, estate planning, determining the value of a minority interest, pricing partial buyouts of existing shareholders, gifting of stock of privately held companies and the assessment of acquisitions.
