Founder and Principal Consultant at Carol Sente Consulting, LLC
Passionate about helping professional service firms focus on the business side of their practice so they can build “showroom ready” organizations that appeal to future internal and external buyers. With first-hand knowledge working in a diverse range of industries – including the design & construction industry, government, hospitality and advertising – she utilizes her 30 years of experience transitioning firms from good to great to help companies reach their next pinnacle of success.
Known for her abilities in rainmaking, emerging leader development, strategy, success planning and process improvement, she was recruited for numerous private and public board positions before being appointed as State Representative in the Illinois General Assembly during one of the most challenging decades as a public servant. During her almost ten-year tenure, she was committed to the philosophy of being a centrist problem solver and citizen legislator who stayed grounded in the daily realities her constituents face.
As a long time, small business owner and champion, Carol is proud to be a SBAC Board Member. As a legislator she worked closely with the Small Business Advocacy Council on passage of numerous bills, most notably the LLC fee reduction and crowdfunding legislation, now Illinois state law.
