Former CEO of PCI Animal Health, Robert Zeide, Launches Washington Laight Business Solutions, LLC to Help New York-Area Veterinary Practices Prosper

Successful business entrepreneur's new firm to assist and counsel veterinary practices throughout all business stages

NEW YORK, Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Robert Zeide, is pleased to announce the launch of his new firm, Washington Laight Business Solutions, LLC. Washington Laight was created to assist and counsel New York metropolitan area veterinarians at every stage in the life span of their business.  With years of experience and credibility within the field, Washington Laight is able to advise practices that are just starting out, those that are growing and expanding, and others that are seeking a seamless exit strategy.

Zeide has close to 30 years of experience as a CEO, with a diverse background in business development and the animal health field. As the former CEO of PCI Animal Health, Zeide knows the challenges many local veterinarian practices face today.

"PCI was a family-owned business that was able to thrive against much larger, publically-owned corporations. I was able to grow the business into the number one distributor in New York, and that ultimately resulted in the very successful sale of PCI to one of our competitors in 2012." Zeide said.  "My background in the animal health field, coupled with my personal experience at PCI, further made me realize that veterinarians are in dire need of assistance and I am in a unique position to offer my counsel."

Washington Laight provides personalized, affordable support with Inventory Management and Product Purchasing; Staff & Team Management and Time Control; Customer Service and Satisfaction Awareness; and Doctor & Staff Interpersonal Skills and Client Interaction Reviews.

"Many times practices are not aware of what their strengths and weaknesses are, or where there could be room for improvement," said Zeide.  "It is our goal to help them alleviate their management concerns, so they can focus on their core business."

Washington Laight possesses a sophisticated team of CPAs, attorneys, insurance professionals, and financial advisors that are experts in New York State laws and the intricacies of veterinary practices and services.  This allows Washington Laight to offer extremely focused and targeted advice to its roster of clients.  After a thorough review and evaluation of a practice and its specific needs, Washington Laight's advanced team of professionals can provide the following additional services, if needed:

  • Practice Appraisal, Valuation, and Management
  • Associate Buy-Ins
  • Life Stage Planning
  • Tax & Financial Planning and Budgeting
  • Management Appraisals
  • Financing, Leasing, Insurance, and Equipment Procurement
  • Legal Services

"We really have a terrific team of professionals we work with, who are poised to offer extremely customized and cost-effective services to our clients," Zeide adds.  "At the same time, we are more than willing to work with a team you may already have in place.  All our work at Washington Laight is protected by a strict confidentiality agreement."
