Our Work in Charleston

"To prove his point, Stuart subsequently used his own profit for purpose leadership and management models to create almost $1Billion in realized shareholder value from the companies he started and sold, and or worked with. Frankly, having created Profit for Purpose in 1993, he is the best in the world at what he does"

How We Give Back to Our Great City

Our clients include the City of Charleston, The College of Charleston, and some of our city's most recognizable business. And although we are proud of the work we do with our clients, we are even more proud of what we have contributed to our great City of Charleston.

Annually, we donate close to 2,000 hours of time and +/- $200,000 to the Charleston causes we care about. We provide our efforts to CofC, The Citadel, The Al Cannon Detention Center, The City of Charleston, Impact Entrepreneurs in Charleston, and any and all Community Residents of the Greater Charleston Region that have a hope or a dream.
