John F. Wonak announced today the launch of Sea Level Advisory Group, LLC, a team of experienced C-Level executives and advisors that offer a carefully defined portfolio of services designed to help companies augment the knowledge and skills of their management teams. Based in Chicago with team members across the United States and Europe, Sea Level targets small to medium-sized businesses that aspire to achieve the next level.

"The objective of Sea Level Advisory Group is to help companies look beyond their day to day challenges and to achieve their true potential," said Mr. Wonak. "I am proud to represent a team of senior executives of this caliber. We offer our experience and know how to companies that are looking to break out of the pack."

Prior to founding Sea Level Advisory Group, Mr. Wonak co-founded the national telecommunications firm, OPEX Communications and served as its Chief Financial Officer, eventually guiding its sale in 2007. John spent the first 20 years of his career in public accounting, including several years with the national firm, BDO Seidman, and ten years with his own CPA firm, which he sold in 1997. In addition to being a Certified Public Accountant, John earned both a B.S. in Accounting and a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) from Northern Illinois University. John is an adjunct professor of Finance in the Executive MBA Program at Northern Illinois University, and serves as a mentor at DePaul University's Coleman Center for Entrepreneurship, having also instructed a course on finance to business owners.

"Sea Level Advisory is unlike some other consulting firms that came about as a last resort for out of work professionals," added Mr. Wonak. "Instead, Sea Level Advisory is comprised of a complementary set of executives who have achieved a high level of success and are now eager to share their experience to the benefit of our clients."

The assembled team of professionals covers a diverse set of disciplines, including finance and accounting, information systems and technology, sales and marketing, performance development and operations. Services offered range from high-level advisory board services to in-depth project-level engagements.
