About the Cincinnatus Group

 
 


How The Cincinnatus Group Began

The Cincinnatus Group is a sales and marketing consulting firm offering contracted sales and marketing consulting services to private and public entities located throughout the world.

Founded by Andrew C. McCaffrey, The Cincinnatus Group finds its primary challenge in two current market/business conditions. At one and the same time, these conditions present modern businesses with severe challenges to growth and yet unparalleled opportunities.

The First Condition

 

With ever increasing speed, both new and traditional marketplaces are transforming from highly profitable ventures with little competition, into globalized, low-profit, highly competitive marketplaces.

 

The Second Condition

 

Blindsided by the ever increasing changes to their marketplace, today’s executives and entrepreneurs often find themselves caught up in “emergency mode,” or damage control, overwhelmed with the day-to-day demands of keeping their business afloat. The forethought needed to anticipate upcoming changes in the market, let alone to react effectively, seems an unattainable luxury.
 

To one degree or another,
every business faces these same market forces.
The Cincinnatus Group was founded to help
your company overcome them.
 

In Response to the First Condition

 

By working with your company, The Cincinnatus Group can help identify market strengths which would place you ahead of the competition, if only your potential customers better understood what you do better than all the rest. From our services as a Manufacturer Representative to our many capabilities in Marketing, Sales and Strategic Consulting, The Cincinnatus Group strengthens awareness in the marketplace of your company’s unique strengths.

 

In Response to the Second Condition

 

The Cincinnatus Group provides leadership in Strategic Consulting, from the basics of Strategic Planning to the management and implementation of a structured marketing plan. Our experienced and objective professionals have the ability to analyze your company’s present and future opportunities in a constantly changing marketplace.

The Story of the Emperor Cincinnatus

The Cincinnatus Group takes its name from the Roman Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus. A figure of legendary Roman virtue, Cincinnatus, having retired from public office, was plowing his fields one day in 458 BCE, when he received an urgent plea to return to the command of Rome’s armies. The city was under the attack of Aequi and Volscian tribes.

At great risk to himself and with no desire for glory, Cincinnatus took up his command, defeated the advancing barbarians, and then returned to his farm, all within 16 days.

George Washington has been called an American Cincinnatus because he rose to the defense of his nation, but held command only until the defeat of the British and, at a time when he could have been proclaimed King, instead returned to the life of a farmer at his beloved Mount Vernon.

The Cincinnatus Group holds no ambition higher than to respond to the call of companies struggling in the new and chaotic markets of the twenty first century, or whose dream is to advance to the next level of success, and by our efforts ensure a dramatic increase in gross revenues. After achieving one success, we will simply move on to help another, and another. Is the time right for us to work with you?
