About Us

Founded in 2014, Horizon Financial Solutions began as a contracted Executive Finance firm providing expertise to struggling business owners within the small to medium-sized manufacturing segment.  Following a set of developed disciplines and metrics, Horizon was a proven success in the revitalization of multiple companies.  But something was missing.  Brian Keath, the founder of Horizon Financial Solutions, recognized there was an integral segment that was missing from these distressed companies, a solid HR foundation.  In 2018, Brian partnered with Naomi Davis, an HR professional with over 17 years experience in a variety of industries to assist in building a stable infrastructure.  

 

Today, Horizon Financial Solutions offers a complete package of Finance and HR services that can be used together or independently depending on the individual needs of the company.

 

If your company is in financial or HR distress, seeking rapid growth, looking for margin improvement, cash flow enhancements, or capital management contact Horizon Financial Solutions today for a consultation.  Horizon strives to ensure that your investment in them is far surpassed by your return.

Brian Keath, founder and owner of Horizon Financial Solutions

Brian founded Horizon Financial Solutions with a Midwest work ethic and big company sophistication.  With more than 15 years in various private equity engagements and publicly traded companies, he developed a series of disciplines and metrics that promote success.  

 

Brian's passion fostered in various small to medium-sized manufacturing facilities that were struggling to survive.  He recognized similarities between the companies and decided to venture out on his own to apply the disciplines he developed to bring new life to distressed companies.  His success has lead to the revitalization of multiple companies and continued growth.

 

Brian's clients use Horizon in a variety of settings including directing the revitalization of business on the edge of bankruptcy, selling a division and managing the change from private ownership to sophisticated models and processes under private equity leadership to name a few.  Brian's ability to transition these companies has equated in returns exceeding the investment by the business owner.  Investment is the key word; investment in Horizon Financial Solutions will pay dividends over and over.
