Meet the Boyer & Associates Leadership Team
Jack Boyer, CPA (inactive), MCP – President
Jack founded Boyer & Associates in 1994 with a vision to create a firm that could attract and keep the area’s best ERP consultants, developers, and business development people.
Jack’s career began doing application and sales support for Solomon Software- the firm that created Dynamics SL. Jack was promoted to regional manager when the firm moved him from Philadelphia to Chicago in 1988.
Jack believes that finding the right software is only a piece of the challenge in implementing software. Without the right people to implement it, you only have half a solution. You need the right business analyst to flush out a company’s requirements and you need the right consultants to make the software align with those needs.
Jack has an honors degree in accounting from Penn State (1984) and passed the CPA exam while at Boyer & Associates.

Colleen has 18 years of helping clients make their businesses better with Dynamics SL.

Fred Holst, MCP – Dynamics NAV Practice Leader
Fred has been in software consulting for over 30 years. After starting his career as a developer, he quickly realized he enjoyed figuring out the solution more than writing the code.

Having helped start a NAV Solution Center in 1998, Fred learned how to build a team of professionals that could deliver superior quality and service. Among his strengths are his ability to separate the symptom from the problem and to identify the real needs of his clients.
Fred was a consultant on the first book published about NAV and spoke at the NAV National Users Group conference.
Fred’s marketing degree is from Concordia University in St. Paul, MN.
