A word from the CEO
Top Step and its bespoke reputation in the market, the long list of happy customers that it has over the years would not have been possible without a rock-solid and an expert team. Top Step’s impeccable team, who would willingly go out of their way and methodologies to provide the customer best service possible along with efficient possible. All of this would not have been possible without an equally talented, skilled, expert and dedicated leader, and Top Step has got the best team and the leader in the business, President and CEO, Ronn Breaux.
Ronn possesses a good and varied experience behind him which he learnt as he worked under many employers and at various designations, teaching him the knowledge, functioning and the processes involved in various aspects of a business or a service. It is because of his experiences as VP of Sales, giving him the knowledge on building sales plans, hiring and managing a sales team, VP of Delivery, learning how to engage customers successfully along with hiring and building a delivery organisation ensuring consistent professional service with maximum performance and standards.
As a CFO, learning to manage finances, costs and manage company profitability. It is the gist of all the experiences the led to the inception of Top Step along with its team which is highly equipped, talented and skilled carefully handpicked by Ronn himself, to make sure Top Step’s customers receive the best-in-class solutions and services.
Being an entrepreneur himself, Ronn understands the problems and challenges faced by new businesses and services, thus Top Step was founded with the mission to empower theses new business and services with all the solutions to efficiently run their business, achieve profitability and enriching their customers with an unparalleled service experience.
Moreover, in today’s world where the competition in the market is getting tougher every passing day, a business or a service needs a mentor and guidance who will go out of their way to help them and provide feasible and fruitful solutions. Ronn felt the need and importance of such mentor and decided to start Top Step, leaving a job that offered stability and comforts, to help these new businesses and services, make sure that they achieve their goals, profitability and provide best services to the customers that they serve.
Ronn with his experience could have started his own business in any niche but starting a professional consultancy to new business and services is something he did with only one aim in mind, i.e. empowerment of employees and customers, alike. Ronn feels that a lot of products and services no matter how good and efficient they are failed, due to lack of knowledge about running their business/service, functioning involved, marketing, etc.
Ronn along with his team who feel and have the same values instilled in them have a duty and responsibility to help these business and services in attaining growth, profitability and the recognition that they truly deserve. Ronn and Top Step’s team only have this one goal in their mind, and they do not hesitate to go a step beyond to provide the best possible service and satisfaction to their customers because they feel in the growth of their customers, they grow, and what better way to work than this.
After Ronn took over Top Step, he organized the company to create teams with team managers. This has worked out very well for the organization. Since all of the Top Step’s employees work remotely, it was important to provide them with a reporting structure. They also meet with their employees multiple times per week including team meetings and one on ones with managers. Ronn feels he and his team is unique because they all have similar backgrounds managing professional service organizations as well as a passion for helping their clients solve everyday problems using PSA tools.
