A Gordon Tunstall, President and Founder


A Gordon Tunstall founded Tunstall Consulting in 1980 to provide entrepreneurs with an unbiased advisory service developing growth capital in the institutional capital markets. Today, Tunstall Consulting has been recognized as one of the most successful, national consulting firms specializing in providing entrepreneurs with business strategy development and access to the institutional financial marketplace.

Mr. Tunstall implemented an hourly based fee model to ensure his advice was always aligned with those of his clients and not based on biases towards contingent commissions or capital structure. This unique industry approach removes many of the disincentives that work against the entrepreneur when retaining professional advice in accessing the capital markets.

Mr. Tunstall has been featured in Forbes, The Wall Street Journal and other national publications. Additionally, Mr. Tunstall has been honored as Ernst & Young's Entrepreneur of the Year for his dual successes as the founder of Tunstall Consulting as well as for his efforts in supporting entrepreneurship.

Born in Philadelphia, Mr. Tunstall attended Widener College prior to becoming a CPA for Coopers & Lybrand. Later he joined Provident National Bank (Now PNC Bank) as a loan officer, helped integrate John P. Maguire & Company (a New York based factoring company) into the bank and ultimately became Vice President and founded PNC's Asset Based Lending Department. Later, Mr. Tunstall served as CFO for Swann Oil Co., a Philadelphia-based fuel company with $25 million in sales, developing the acquisition and financing plan to grow the Company to more than $450 million in sales in just 4 years. Following Swann Oil, Mr. Tunstall formed Tunstall Consulting to help entrepreneurs plan their growth and properly capitalize their companies with the most appropriate financing structure.
