We Are Synthesus

Learn about Patty Backman and how she can help your small or mid-size business.

Who We Are

Synthesus Founder and CEO Patty Backman started her career in smaller businesses across the insurance, banking and technology industries, with a formative stint working in small business accounting for one of the largest legacy CPA firms. As she moved on to multinational corporations, she recognized that organizations of all sizes face similar challenges — even if the number of zeroes on the balance sheet are different.

While working in those global organizations, she saw consultants come and go but rarely saw their recommendations implemented. She realized she could apply her three decades of executive operations experience toward helping smaller and midsized businesses by identifying the root causes of their toughest operational challenges AND by staying to implement the solutions.
