Our Story

About The Five Echelon Group

The Five Echelon Group was founded with the mission of helping small and midsize businesses build a foundation for long-term success. After 30 years of working for both small businesses and large, enterprise companies, Eric Dickmann - Founder of The Five Echelon Group, decided to leave the corporate world and put his experience to work helping other companies become successful.


Over the years in interactions with many business owners, he heard a common refrain. Businesses owners were so busy dealing with the day-to-day of running their businesses, they didn't have time to develop the strategies critical to long-term success.


Execution was reactionary. Too much time was spent dealing with customer service issues or managing a workforce that didn't seem engaged in the business's success.


Marketing was confusing and expensive. Results were difficult to measure and profits were elusive.


The framework behind The Five Echelon was developed to deal with these core issues facing business owners. They aren't revolutionary but instead, encapsulate the best thinking developed over many decades by industry thought leaders.


The framework provides a starting point to uncover problems and then design a strategic blueprint for measurable, long-term growth and success.


And while profit is the goal of any business, we strongly believe it's not the only goal. Developing a thriving organizational culture is equally important. 


Enriching lives, providing an opportunity for personal fulfillment and developing a positive work-life balance are fundamental to our mission. We believe living these values enable business owners to be successful while contributing to the wellbeing of their employees, customers and communities. 


We hope to have the chance to work with your business! To uncover issues, apply best practices and using our framework, build a strong foundation for success, growth, and fulfillment!
