Meet the Principals of RK Fischer & Associates

Heading 1

Our Partners Bring Experience

Our partners bring 25+ years of experience each managing areas within a business but an entire business as well for others. We have been helping owner-operated business since 2010 for RK Fischer & Associates.  When you engage RK Fischer & Associated, you are engaging one of the Partners, not a junior associate.

Karen Fischer

Partner

Karen started RK Fischer & Associates in January of 2010, after 25 years of success working in marketing, sales, channel development, and general management roles in the hi-tech, business services, and manufacturing sectors in management or executive roles for companies such as Cognos, Siemens, Entrust, Mitel, and Pitney Bowes.

The six years before starting RK Fischer & Associates, she held executive roles in start-up and small businesses, which is where she determined that business consultants and business coaches were underserved in the small business market.

Karen is passionate about helping business owners and is happy to share her experience and expertise that she gained throughout her career.  

Karen has also taught college classes in the business school at Durham College and Lambton College.
