Jim is often asked to play the role of “facilitator” when the “human” issues become complex.  Ultimately, each client engagement needs a quarterback who actively and consistently monitors and reviews the ever-changing circumstances surrounding the lives of high-net worth individuals.Jim cherishes the personal touch involved in maintaining this style of relationship.

Executive Compensation and Fringe Benefit Consulting
Many wealthy families built their net worth in large part by creating and leading some of our countries most famous businesses.

The firm clients are located throughout the United States and include both mid to large size public and privately owned enterprises, as well as many tax exempt organizations.

Succession Planning
Many of the firm’s oldest and largest clients came to have Jim assist them in monetizing the wealth they had developed in their business interests. They chose the firm of The Hebets Company and Jim individually, because of his extensive background in understanding how to integrate the planning process of monetizing their business interests within the context of their overall estate plan.
