Allan Lamar

Simplify, Improve, Grow

TAB Colorado Springs

Allan has had the fortune of working in and leading nearly every function of a business. Through these experiences and his constant learning and development, he has created a proven philosophy and strategy that builds strong and profitable organizations. Having paid his way through college as a journeyman electrician and serving in the Army National Guard, Allan laid the foundation of hard work, efficiency, and productivity needed to achieve big things.

Allan entered the software industry, joining the startup EWS as the director of professional services and worked his way up to head the entire organization. EWS’ dominance in the transportation industry led to selling the company to Constellation Software at a premium. On the strength of his performance and record, Allan was asked to lead the turnarounds of two struggling companies also owned by this holding company. In total, he has directly served as the President/CEO of EWS, Compusource, and Constellation Payments. Most recently, he served as Portfolio Manager/CEO of six other Constellation companies.

His particular expertise is in strategic planning and execution, financial management, business process design, and leadership development. Allan has been certified by the Colorado Small Business Development Center (SBDC) as a Business Consultant. He is also the founder and owner of Simpro Strategies; a firm focused on helping business owners and leaders to simplify, improve, and grow their organizations.

He is a graduate of the University of Florida with a B. A. in History and subsequently possesses a plethora of useless trivia knowledge. He resides in Colorado Springs, CO, with his wife and family and enjoys road biking and home improvement.

Member Success

There is no silver bullet to becoming successful, you just have to stay focused on your goals. TAB has helped my business grow significantly by encouraging me to take a step back and identify the basics I need.
Jo McCabe
Mr. Handyman
TAB helped me to focus on the things that have made my business scalable. I was tempted to divert my attention to another endeavor, but TAB helped me determine that was not prudent. The economy, and specifically new building starts, have helped, but the degree of capitalization would not have been possible were it not for TAB. I compare my situation with another franchise owner who was in my shoes several years ago and I am way ahead, in fact we just bought him out. My revenues have doubled, and my capacity has increased four times from what it was three years ago. I have time to be with my girls, work on my hobbies and enjoy life.
Bill Armstrong
President – ProHome Colorado

Sometimes it is difficult to see the next steps that need to be taken while dealing with everything that can, and does, happen in a small business. TAB has helped my company effectively lay out plans to move forward during not only a difficult time, but also a crucial growth period, allowing us to expand where we would have otherwise faltered.

I was fortunate to find TAB very shortly after starting my firm. I had the knowledge and experience to be a good lawyer, but I didn’t appreciate the nuances of owning my own business.My coach and my board have helped me to see and do things that hadn’t even occurred to me. Without their guidance, I don’t think my business would be where it is today!

As a TAB member, through the regular coaching sessions and monthly Board meetings, I gain invaluable mentor and peer support. The TAB ethos and coaching approach has helped me to plan personal and business goals and set direction. This is supported by the wealth of knowledge, skills, experience and support that is shared by the board who provide Impartial, informed and considered guidance and advice on all types of business issues, that enable me to gain fresh perspectives, identify blind spots and fill my skill gaps. Over the last twelve months TAB has effectively become my company’s non-executive board and its members my trusted colleagues.
