New Year, A Whole New Look (Plus Some Dates You Need to Know)

SRC Launches New Website

We’re excited to announce that the new Stones River Consulting website is live! We hope that you’ll find the new version of the site to be more user-friendly and informative and less… well, less like most other financial firm websites.

We wanted our site to represent the real us and not be just another corporate site.

Thanks to the wonderful team at Ellis Pond, we believe that’s what we’ve accomplished.

Be sure to check out the About page to read a very special profile of our favorite SRC staffer Maggie.
