Our Team:

Chris Dionne, founder of Stellar Business Consulting, is a master business consultant with 20 years’ experience in training, educating and coaching business owners and executives on how to best position their businesses for scalable growth.

Over the course of his career, Chris has taken his experience of building equity value and sustainability, and applied it to his own businesses, as well as training countless small-to-medium businesses world-wide.

In addition to working with SME’s, Chris has consulted with divisions of large corporations, has worked one-on-one with top CEO’s and business owners, and holds a number of Board positions including Chairman.

Chris educates his clients on the fundamental elements of business, both commercially and culturally, and given his funds management background, Chris brings a unique level of expertise to understanding economic cycles and how to work with the market to reap the rewards.

In Chris’ view many businesses have underperformed through market cycles and are not aware of the hidden value within their business. By focusing on key areas, his clients have increased their performance and, as a result, their overall equity value.

In 1999, Chris co-founded Shirlaws Group, and using Shirlaws IP, he and his founding partners made the BRW Fast 100 list two years running in 2003 (7th) and 2004 (57th). In 2003 Chris was instrumental in expanding the enterprise globally, where today it has become a successful business coaching and consulting firm specialising in the SME market.

In 2017, Chris took the opportunity to refresh his focus and as part of his succession strategy, founded Stellar Business Consulting, a boutique firm with a collaborative team of best in class business leaders to complement his own skills.
