Nico Cerni Associates


Nicolò Cerni Associates (NCA) is an indipendent business development and management practice. For over 25 years we have helped our clients to achieve commercial advantage from technology, from process based or from market know how.

NCA is a full-service business development group and general management consulting firm focused on small and medium-size privately-held companies in the world. We help small and medium-size businesses maintain positive cash flow, control costs and accelerate profitable growth, allowing entrepreneurs and managers to make the most of their work and their lives.

We do not have too many employees and are regarded as a lean and strong, fairly priced professional management advisor with high service level.

We have more experience in providing consulting services to the owners of small and medium-size businesses than any other company, due to our personal job history in the past 25 years. We have analyzed more than 200 businesses and provided services to more than 80 business owners. It is widely held that we are one of the few management consulting firm in the world that delivers such a broad array of professional services to the small and medium-size business marketplace, with a personal mentoring, and a very responsible approach.

NCA is considered a “full-service” consulting company — meaning that we maintain the expertise and diversification necessary to address all aspects of our client’s business. This differentiates NCA from most consulting companies, who only maintain the capabilities to address very specific and precise issues or industries. This requires us to maintain a staff of highly “specialized” professionals across a diverse mix of industries and disciplines. We are proud to say, that in the history of NCA, there has never been an issue raised during the course of a client engagement where there wasn’t a consultant on staff that didn’t have prior experience in dealing with, and resolving, that specific issue.
