About Us

 

 

The Quality of our Team

 

Our partners and advisors are all highly experienced individuals with broad and deep business experience. We have built highly successful businesses in our own right and helped lead corporations to new heights of value creation. We continue to innovate and explore new ideas in management practices. This is the level of experience and knowledge needed to help companies drive success in their markets. The bottom line is that "experience and wisdom" counts.

 

How We Work with Clients

 

Our approach to working with clients is interactive and high touch; we invariably become part of the executive team. We immerse ourselves and work side by side with our clients to attack and solve the business challenges at hand and to help uncover relevant facts, issues and opportunities.

 

We Thrive on Challenges

 

We have all chosen to be a part of KMG because we truly love the work. We do it for the satisfaction of helping our clients grow. We live for the work, not just work to live.

 

                                                                                           

The strategic theme that guides our work is accelerating growth

 

In our careers, as managers and as advisors to managers, we've learned the value of growing organizations. Growth delivers value for employees, who like to work where opportunity for advancement exists; for customers, who receive high levels of service and much higher rates of new product introductions; for communities, where expanding enterprises generate jobs and revenues for enhanced services; and for investors, who receive sharply higher returns. Our commitment to our clients is to measure our success by the financial and competitive success our clients achieve.

 

We work in teams

 

We've learned that the best ideas come from collaboration, from the interaction of different experiences and points of view. Our teams include KMG Partners and the client itself. By working shoulder-to-shoulder with our clients, we improve the likelihood that our recommendations for action will be understood, embraced and lead to the desired impact.  Our style is not to generate volumes of documents but rather to bring ideas and initiatives into the fabric of the client's processes and culture. We call this style "learning by doing" to distinguish it from the more common, ponderous style which generates fees for the consultant, rather than impact for the client.

 

We work with our clients on the Big Things they face

 

These can be purely strategic, such as a merger proposal or a new product development effort, financial, such as raising capital or executing work-outs, or organizational, such as the innovation process or cultural issues that disrupt progress. With the breadth and depth of our capability we can work on a wide range of big things for our clients. Further, we have strategic relationships with other organizations so if we see a need for additional subject matter expertise or more specific process knowledge we have trusted partners to whom we can turn.

 

Our client mix

 

Purposely it includes both younger, smaller organizations that need our assistance to reach the next level of scale and performance, as well as larger organizations that need to ratchet up their rate of value-creating growth. Working within both groups of clients gives us valuable perspectives to share. For example, from our younger clients we bring hands-on experience in acting rapidly and being flexible; from our larger clients we bring the value of effective processes that facilitate scale.
