Who Is TAB

What is a Business Advisory Board?

TAB Business Advisory Boards provide seasoned, practical advice to forward-thinking business owners who are ready to take their businesses to an entirely new level.

TAB Founder and Chairman, Allen Fishman, launched TAB close to 30 years ago. He found that his board of directors was invaluable to him throughout his career. But what about the smaller business owner? Where do they go for advice? These questions led Fishman to launch TAB’s first business advisory board in 1990.

“As a small-business owner, my personal life is inextricably intertwined with my business life. Every major decision I make has a potential impact on all aspects of my life, not just my business life. Both my personal and business lives are responsible for creating the dynamics that have given me the ability to be successful and happy in my role of entrepreneur.”
