Why Yield Group?

Your special-ops growth team

We're a specialized team that delivers results with control, transparency and speed. No consulting without execution and no execution without strategy—just real business outcomes. Here's what makes us different:

Why we exist

Our why
Middle-market companies with aggressive growth goals often understand their customer well and what has helped them get to where they are. But when they attempt to increase growth, often in pursuit of higher multiples, they face significant bottlenecks in both expertise and capacity. Yield is the solution to that problem.
Our mission
Our mission is to help companies leverage strategy, data, technology and processes to build scalable, sustainable growth as efficiently as possible. Our hope is that this creates value for their customers, employees and stakeholders.
Our experience (we've been in your shoes)
Our value comes from having been in the shoes of our clients, many times at our own companies. We've intentionally designed every part of Yield Group to serve those roles and deliver the outcomes they are responsible for.

Our Story

Yield Group was forged in the fires of leadership at growth companies.

The seeds for Yield sprouted when Eric Dodds, Mason Stewart and Peter Barth finished out their tenure at a business they sold to a publicly traded company. Significant interest in their unique insights into growth and technology led to several successful consulting engagements—and Yield Group was born.

After a year of refining the model, we were able to convince our friend Gary Schwake, a successful entrepreneur and mid-market expert, to leave a large organization and join Eric as a Managing Partner.

We've pulled together a team with decades of experience in growth. Several of us have built and successfully exited companies and have experience inside the enterprise.

The common thread across our intersecting paths has been our philosophical alignment on how to drive growth with data and our proven ability to deliver results in all types of businesses.
