Involvement in live theater, from on-stage performance to board management, is really just a side story to a successful career path, for both Dennis Helfand and Judy Helfand, in both large industry and small business ownership, spanning 50 years. Here is a recap of the last two decades!

Get to know Helfand Enterprises, LLC

Helfand Enterprises, LLC was primarily a business consulting firm serving small business owners in reviewing business and marketing plans. Helfand Enterprises was founded by Dennis Helfand in 1998 and provided extensive web site promotion, web site design and consultation for clients across the U.S and Alaska, specializing in establishing a strong web presence. After having sold a small business in 1997, Dennis originally worked with innkeepers in promoting their businesses online and eventually assisted some of these innkeepers in selling their properties via the internet.

The birth of Webconsuls…

By late 1999, Dennis formed Webconsuls, LLC with W. Richard (Dick) Fay and Helfand Enterprises became a small division of Webconsuls focusing solely on listing inns, hotels and B & Bs for sale. The business model which appealed to sellers was that Helfand Enterprises was able to attract  interested buyers using advanced web marketing development expertise. Yes, we were successful in selling a number of these properties.

From 1999 Webconsuls, LLC grew to be a leading internet web site development firm with clients across the United States (many of whom are still part of Webconsuls' portfolio), providing search engine optimization, web site marketing, social media marketing and the designing and updating our clients’ sites. Judy joined Webconsuls in 2006.

Webconsuls continues to evolve…

Webconsuls continued to grow and we hired specialists who could support us and our clients in designing new sites, managing site maintenance, becoming experts in search engine optimization, receiving certifications in pay per click management all the while working directly and indirectly with our clients.

Selling Webconsuls…

In late 2014, Dennis, Dick and Judy began planning a transition strategy to sell Webconsuls in a manner that would respect our clients’ needs and ensure a smooth transfer. And while the lure of retirement was captivating, we committed to each other that a transfer of ownership would focus first and foremost on administering our clients’ businesses continued success. On February 23, 2015, our contractors Malik Moosa Soomar, Heidi Trow and John McGhee purchased Webconsuls from Dennis, Dick and Judy.

Coming full circle

Since selling Webconsuls, we have continued to stay active in our community, while networking with other businesses as they try new marketing ideas. This past year we decided to get back into acting and we were invited to Amherst College to stage "Love Letters" for the Class of '68's 50th Reunion. As a result, we have been booked at a number of venues for future dates.

 Please contact Dennis or Judy Helfand, if you are interested in booking us to perform "Love Letters."

Located in Southern Arizona, we are proud members of the Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
