Ripoff Report Verified™ REVIEW:

EDitor’s UPDATE: Positive rating and recognition has been given to American Management Services, Inc. for its commitment to excellence in customer service.

Ripoff Report’s discussions with American Management Services, Inc. have uncovered an ongoing commitment by the company to total client satisfaction. This means that clients can expect that the company will work towards finding a mutually satisfactory resolution to any complaints or concerns. American Management listens carefully to client concerns and sees them as an opportunity to learn from past mistakes and become more efficient as a company in the services offered and the support for those services.

American Management Services, Inc’s CEO/founder George Cloutier, has informed us that his personal philosophy is that his clients and his employees are a precious resource. [continued below]....
..... As a successful businessman, Mr. Cloutier feels it is critical to listen to his clients and respond properly. By always putting his clients first, Mr. Cloutier hopes to maintain American Management Services as an industry leader, and a successful enterprise both now and for many years to come.

Another top executive of the company told us that Mr. Cloutier’s personal business philosophy is based on the premise that "strives to add value in its services as they understand that a successful business model is based on value-added services, and client care”. Mr. Cloutier takes the time to understand each individual client challenge and opportunity. Having founded American Management Services, Inc. over 27 years ago the foundation and bedrock of our organization has always been to recruit, hire and train exceptional staff members, to empower them properly and to always go the extra mile for our clients no matter what the circumstance. Some of the other things Rip-off Report learned in the course of its investigation: typical client feedback reads: “American Management Services helped us restructure our organization to improve communication and establish accountability as well. I would be glad to recommend your team to any prospective clients.” Another client recently wrote us “I now understand the benefit of having the structure in place to operate more efficiently and profitably. I am excited and motivated about the future of the company. Thank you very much for everything.”

The information provided in this report below is based on comments made by Louis Mosca during an on-site inspection held by a third party verification company with no biases toward the American Management Services, Inc.

American Management Services is Ripoff Report Verified
Ripoff Report Verified™ .. part of Ripoff Report Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation & Customer Satisfaction Program.A program that benefits the consumer, assures them of complete satisfaction and confidence when doing business with a member business..

The American Management Services, Inc. provides privately held companies, primarily family owned businesses, the tools and opportunities to grow. It also meets with business owners throughout the country to challenge their company’s needs, sales, profits, and ease of operations. American Management Services, Inc. buys leads for businesses. Additionally, The American Management Services, Inc. get referrals from clients, banks, and accounting firms.

According to Louis Mosca, vice president and COO, all leads are bought from Dun & Bradstreet. Mr. Mosca also stated “We deal only with business clients, not individual consumers. We are strictly a business-to-business company.” American Management Services has four groups that make up the company. Consisting of consulting, call center, outside sales, and survey which work hands on with the business clients. If a potential client indicates interest, the client will begin the necessary introduction process. For a nominal one-time fee, the company will then send a consultant to a potential client’s facility for five to ten days. Those days are spent in attempt to identify areas of opportunity to grow. To ease the mind of the client, Mr. Mosca states “All company consultants are employees, not contractors. Our consultants have 20-40 years of hands-on business experience.” American Management Services will also answer any questions the client may have.

American Management Services has been in business 27 years and has worked with 7500 clients. Mr Mosca states “Each year we add an additional 400-500 to the client base.” In those 27 years, there has been only two clients not satisfied with the service provided. For example, 5-6 weeks ago one of the dissatisfied clients based in New Jersey posted on Ripoff Report’s website. “When we met with the business owner in September/October 2013, the owner was personally, and business wise insolvent” says Mr. Mosca. The client could not pay bills, payroll, or debt services. American Management Services worked with him over the course of 6-7 months and was able to restructure his company. The client refinanced his debt and that saved him $45,000 per month in cash. This, in turn, saved the client $540.000 a year. American Management Services then increased the client’s liquidity by $1,000,000. The client wrote the company a formal reference letter that has been posted to American Management Services website for 2-3 months. Subsequent to giving the reference letter, this same client posted “This insanity on Ripoff Report attacking me personally and our company’s results” states Mr. Mosca. Mr. Mosca has spoken to him since the client posted on Ripoff Report. Mr Mosca has also skyped with the client when the consultant was there, client’s location, on American Managements dime. Since then, the client admitted to over reacting. The client also stated, “I am very happy.” American Management Services has given the aforementioned client extra time for both parties to resolve any open items the client thinks are real.

American Management Services has one hundred employees with no turnover. The employees have been completely loyal to the company. The Senior Management Team, combined, has one hundred years of business service. There are numerous staff members with MBA’s or are CPA’s. One of the consultants “Is a Harvard graduate with a MBA and has spent his entire career helping small businesses survive and prosper. We also have one thousand client references that think we walk on water”, states Mr. Mosca.

American Management Services, Inc. Customer Care & Complaint Resolution

After an issue is was resolved, Mr. Mosca followed up by making the customary telephone call and flew to see the client face to face. Those steps were taken to ensure the clients issue is resolved and that they are satisfied with the resolution.

Mr. Mosca says that as a result of the complaints, the American Management Services, Inc. has implemented changes to help increase the quality of its customers’ experience. Mr. Mosca said, “I think from a business perspective, we will do what is necessary to have civilized conversation” resulting in meeting the clients full expectations and needs. American Management Services also increased their clarification and communication practices. Additionally, go in depth with the client in their client contracts.

Mr. Mosca and his team recognize the value of working with Ripoff Report and the Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program, and the platform it provides for businesses and clients to interact and resolve issues. He stated that “To be a part of these two programs is a badge of courage.” Ultimately wanting to bring back confidence to the company.

American Management Services, Inc. / Employee feedback

Ownership and senior executives are truly concerned about our contribution to the company and providing growth opportunities for us. Executive management of American Management Services take the time to listen and communicate with employees and clients….what could be more important Mr Cloutier asks all the time?”

Ripoff Report was pleased to learn that American Management’s past and current approach to business is focused on its pledge to total commitment towards client and employee satisfaction.

Turnaround Management involves management review. Once analysis is completed, a long term strategic plan and restructuring plan are created. These plans may or may not involve a bankruptcy filing. Once approved our turnaround professionals begin to implement the plan, continually reviewing its progress and making changes to the plan as needed to ensure the company returns to solvency.

Employee Testimonials



American Management Services - AMS The engagement lasted 90-days, and was nothing more than a high pressure confidence job. Internet


Ripoff Report attempted to communicate with the author of the posting below.  Ripoff Report was not sent any evidence for the claims the author of the Report below made. As a matter of policy, when a business joins the Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program, .. Ripoff Report emails everyone that filed a complaint so the member business could make things right with them…  our program calls for the member business to err on the side of the customer. It is our opinion, the Report below is likely bogus.  American Management strongly disagrees with the allegations in this post and has asked us to assist with resolving the situation.  American Management tells Ripoff Report .. “the individual who wrote this posting never was on site when we worked with this client. We have never met him nor was he involved with our project. We did many good things at this client and we have written documentation to evidence our clients satisfaction while we were working with him.” 

I am an accredited investor with a 30-year track record as a senior executive, board member and share-holder of a number of small and mid-sized companies in both Canada and the United States. In 2011 I became involved with one company in particular, a small construction subcontractor that in its 19-years of operation had never earned more than $200,000 in any one year, had the misfortune of engaging American Management Services in the Spring of 2010. At the time of the  engagement the company's revenues had been in a 12-month free fall, the company was operating on the equivalent of financial life support from its bank, its' overhead had been pared to the bone, and its'workforce was no more than a skeleton crew. While the outlook at the time was surely bleak, what the company did have going for
it was the $275,000 cash nest egg it had managed to accumulate over years ofliving prudently managing its business prior to the 2009 recession.  By coincidence the AMS "consultants" offered to recommend programs that "will improve your overall business operation." the company's billings under the part-time (two person) engagement quickly exceeded $250,000 in just 90-days before the company's owner realized that he had made a terrible error in judgment.  AMS's work product was  nothing more than a high pressure  sole objective was to separate the client from the cash and with surgical precision. 

While there may be some out there in America (possibly the Banjo builders from Tennessee) who had a different experience, it is my assessment American Management Services entire business model is by design and implementation predatory; in the extreme.   Perhaps even the fertile ground for the certification of a legal class?  SoCaveat Emptor, or better
still..just say no,  to the  The Business Survey  TM.

So.. what exactly does american management services do?

AUTHOR: Iseeeverything - (United States of America)

This is the question I have been searching for awhile, most of what I hear is "They have a well implemented business plan", basically not giving me anything to chew on.

If their plan is so fantastic, why is it they beat around the bush, as to what exactly there fantastic plan implies? Not ONE person who I knew that worked there had any idea what the heck the company was doing for their clients. 

When you search around for what exactly they do, you see that they like to use the names "partner america", and "US Conference of America", it sounds fancy and all, but it still gives no factual evidence to support that the company as a whole is beneficial to their clients.

Yes, its great and all to brag about your successes, but when your failures outweigh your success it sort of defeats the purpose. When I did alittle bit of "unbiased" research it was extremely evident that most of your clients are not happy with you "business plan", and didnt have very nice things to say.

The same goes for your employees.

Im sure george clotier is feeding at the trough right now with all the money he's getting.

Saved My Company and Instilled GREAT Systems

AUTHOR: Saved By the Bell - (United States of America)

 I also happen to be an accredited investor and have 25 years of experience working in small to medium-sized businesses across Canada and the United States. American management services is in business because of the lack of discipline and controls in small to medium-sized businesses today. You may not like it, but small business owners are seldom taught how to implement new systems and processes that can save their companies. We simply do not have that type of training.

.  American Management Services saved my company. They came in and did an analysis that was probably  worth somewhere between $15,000 and $20,000. They did my survey for $2500.00. Now I don't know any company in the marketplace that is willing to do something at that deep discount in order to prove their worth to you. Any other firm that I spoke with, were looking at a minimum of $25-$50,000 and some wanted $100,000just to conduct the analysis and give me a plan.

You can say what you want about American Management Services, but there is absolutely no one else that I know of that is willing to do this. Nobody is twisting your arm to make  improvements in your organization. It may be difficult to look into the mirror and recognize that you do not possess the talent or the experience to implement the changes that they are suggesting. I readily and freely admit that.

    When I read the story below about the company who was unhappy with the outcome, it brings to mind all of the times that I was reluctant to make the changes necessary to save my company. I am very curious to hear how the company got into that fix in the first place. Was this accredited investor with a 30 year track record they to guide them? After all, he states that he was on the board of this company. So let me see if I got this straight, you waited to get help until you were on the verge of bankruptcy and $250,000 away from running out of cash. And you blame American Management Services for this? Are you really giving us the whole story? because I can tell you from personal experience, that they were incredibly focused on rate of return for all the dollars spent.
   I certainly do not want to get into an argument with someone that refers to people from Tennessee as" banjo builders"because there is certainly no gain in that. I'm sorry to hear that you waited so long to ask for help and then could not look in the mirror and take responsibility for where the company is ended up. Perhaps if you acted sooner, there would've been a significantly higher probability that you could've actually saved this company. and I'm sorry, whose fault was that?

   So I say, you would be absolutely insane not to do at least the survey with American Management Services. That is simply the deal of a lifetime. However, if you do not want to hear the truth and you just want to keep your head buried in the sand then maybe this genius accredited investor is right.

In closing,thank you American Management Services for getting me and my company moving in the right direction. It was not easy to admit to my inability to do certain things, but it sure as hell was necessary.
