About Us

Fundamental Business Services was created fifteen years ago by Fran LaReau. Fran worked in the insurance industry for many years serving as a field underwriter then going on to become a Pension Consultant. She was an ERISA expert and consulted with business owners on the best plan for their companies. As Director of a pension administration company, Fran worked overseeing the annual funding, employee reports and Federal reporting for qualified plans. When she changed focus and became office manager/bookkeeper/trainer for a small business Fran found her niche. Big businesses were interesting, but helping a small company grow is where Fran's interests truly lie. With her financial background, Fran's progression into full time bookkeeping was a natural one.

percentFran, having trained as a Business Coach with Coach U (a three year process), can help small businesses with their planning and with any organizational problems they may have.

Fran's dedication to her client's enterprises is as large as her dedication to excellence in her own business. Fundamental Business Services' growth over the past few years has been notable. Let us help you grow your business too!

Lori's diverse work experience provides her with a broader scope of business practices, thereby allowing her the ability to relate and work with various types of clients.
