Board Member’s Company Selected as Suffolk Top Small Business of the Year for 2015
We were thrilled to see that Korving & Company, LLC was selected as the Top Small Business of the Year in Suffolk for 2015 by the Chamber of Commerce! Stephen Korving, co-founder of the company, joined our Board of Directors this past November and is managing money for not only those in our community, but for many people across the country and the world. The Inside Business article paints a picture of what he and his father have done and continue to do at Korving & Company:
With more than four decades of experience in financial advising between the two of them, Stephen and his father, Arie Korving, started Korving & Co. in 2010 as a way to provide individualized financial advice to their clients. They decided they wanted to run their business to help people achieve their goals and to do so in an ethical, transparent way. Since then, the company has increased at 15%-20% per year. Their secret? Staying small. With a staff of only three working at their Suffolk office, they are able to better grow relationships and to be actively involved in the Southeast Virginia community.
“We are a family business that works with families,” Stephen shares in the article. “We do for our clients what we would do for our family members if they were in our clients’ situation.”
To Stephen and his father, it’s easy to grow in the amount of money they manage, but maintaining the personal relationships they have with people is what’s most important to them. Helping people and putting people first is their main goal.
