Tampa Bay Newport Practice Featured In Local Business Journal

Posted on Mon, Jul 02, 2012

The West Florida practice of Newport Board Group is the subject of a feature article in the June 29th issue of Gulf Coast Business Review.  The article contains excerpts from interviews with Newport Chairman Doug Tatum and West Florida Managing Director John Woelfel. It explains Newport’s focus on middle market companies that are “too big to be small and too small to be big.” It goes on to mention the practice’s plans to have 10 advisors by the end of the year and to deploy Newport’s proprietary software tool, Inc. Navigator, to help companies assess their leadership team and priorities. The article quotes Tatum, author of the acclaimed book No Man’s Land,  about Newport’s focus on middle market companies: “We all love start-ups. But what about the existing firms that are adding more jobs? It’s really important to the country that we respect these kinds of companies.” In the piece Woelfel describes what makes Newport tick, saying: “we share a passion to help entrepreneurs take their company to a new level of growth.”

Doug Tatum will be back in Tampa on Thursday, July 19th for a presentation and panel of CEOs about No Man’s Land from 7:30AM to 9:30AM at The Tampa Club. To contact John Woelfel about the upcoming event, email him at
