Christine Spray came into my life quite accidentally. In 2008, one of my businesses required an immediate audit. I looked to the Texas Society of Accountancy for referrals. Calvetti, Ferguson & Wagner came up along with two other firms. I called all three. Christine took the call at CF&W. She asked pertinent questions, made an appointment and in less than 24 hours was sitting across from me. Our discussion led to a plan of action, which included Christine introducing me to a well suited independent CPA for my company. The action plan was implemented and all turned out very well for me and my business. Christine continued to follow up over the next few months to insure things were going in the right direction. Since that time Christine has been a trusted friend and advisor. Two years ago, I asked for her assistance again when I decided to merge my three businesses. She had recently started her own business, Strategic Catalyst. As our conversation evolved, I began to see all the issues, questions and concerns that had kept me up at night, unwind into realistic goals with manageable expectations and a time frame. What a perfect name, Strategic Catalyst! Her questions were on point. Her perception of the issues was clear and her advice was directed at achieving the intended outcome. On top of that, with Christine’s extensive contacts in Houston, I was able to build a round table of trusted advisors that suited my company’s size and needs. Christine brings to the table the true value of a trusted advisor. Her vast knowledge of business planning, marketing and business relationship development alone are remarkable. Christine’s insight and understanding of the individual owner and the company as a whole is unparalleled. Above all, though, Christine cares about her clients and associates. Her attention to details, her concern for her associates and her commitment to her principles, makes her my most trusted advisor, and friend.
