What Clients are Saying


Rudolph G.

Owner, Waste Company, CO

We retained Congruent Advisory (Tejal) as a sell side M&A consultant. Tejal helped us steer our financial, legal, and operations due diligence process. She was integral to helping the buyer gain comfort on all aspects of the due diligence. Tejal helped us navigate the transaction process in a collaborative manner. Of particular note was her ability to drive the transaction process to fruition in a challenged timeline (approx. 4 months). We unhesitatingly recommend Congruent as an M&A consultant. Congruent would be a key asset to any seller company looking for assistance with their transaction. Our family is forever grateful that Tejal joined our company and lifted our team to a higher level – I give her a five-star rating!

Tejal focused on building trust and capabilities in the accounting team. She helped the accounting team strengthen their analytical and communication skills helping inter-departmental cohesion and a more informed decision-making process. Tejal is an authentic and empowering leader focused on developing and strengthening the capabilities of the teams she works with.

Most certainly, she proved to be one of the best investments we have ever made!

Congruent Advisory (Tejal) worked as a fractional CFO for us for about 2 years. She focused on understanding our business needs of our maturing company and helped improve the quality of data and communication between finance and operations. Tejal provided actionable insight and support on various aspects of our company, such as ERP selection and implementation, audit facilitation, as well as documentation of technical accounting pronouncements and their implementation. Tejal helped guide us on our strategic choice of auditors, as we planned for continued growth of our company. Overall, she helped drive solutions as the company transitioned to a permanent CFO. I highly recommend Tejal. She would be a valuable asset to any company in a growth mode.
