Stephen Wares
Vice President, Business Development
CGMA- CCW Business Solutions, Inc. (A subsidiary of Crowe Clark Whitehill, LLP) 

CCW Business Solutions helps US based companies develop and execute their international expansion plans. We provide our clients with a range of accounting, tax, compliance, payroll and HR solutions designed to make it easy for them to manage and control their overseas sales and support offices.

As VP of Business Development my role is to develop a pipeline of sales opportunities and to successfully convert those opportunities to clients. I am responsible for all aspects of CCW’s North American marketing and sales activities as well as the development of strategic partnerships. In my role I am constantly networking with and engaged in business dealings with technology company CEOs, CFOs and VPs. I have been helping companies expand globally since 1999 and am well known in the San Francisco Bay Area for my expertise in the issues and challenges facing US companies as they venture overseas for the first time and for my ability to help them develop and execute successful international expansion plans. I have worked with hundreds of companies including OpenTable, Xsigo Systems, Astreya Partners and Brightroll most of which have established UK based offices to drive their European expansion. In addition, I have spoken on panels at events discussing international expansion topics and presented workshops at events throughout the US for a variety of organizations including Dow Jones, CFO Roundtable, Financial Executives International, VC Task Force and TiE.
