Charles Whittenburg TTU 2013 Success Story

Charles Whittenburg is owner and president of Whittenburg Land Surveying, the largest land surveying company in the Upper Cumberland region. He has worked on large-scale, public projects like the Center Hill Dam restoration and has expanded his business into the private sector providing site layout, FEMA flood certifications, ALTA certified surveys, topographic surveys, boundary surveys, and GIS data collection. Mr. Whittenburg contacted the TSBDC at TTU in April 2013 seeking assistance with a business buyout and long-term business growth planning. Within a few counseling sessions, his counselor, John Woodard, assisted Charles in assembling the materials required to obtain financing for the business buyout and connected Charles with possible lenders. Charles is quoted as saying “In our initial meeting, John realized I had a goal and was seeking a plan to reach that goal. We made a list of the information I had collected, the information I was lacking, and set a deadline to complete the list. John stayed in contact with me and made sure I was on track for the deadline and that all my questions were answered. What I liked most is he gave me options not opinions. Knowing that I had an unbiased go-to-guy for all things business was like having an offense coach with the play book that won the super bowl for a team I was quarterbacking. TSBDC helped me put my biggest goals on the right track and they are now and forever a major player in my business ventures, past, present, and future.”
