4SIGHT Supply Chain Group provides consulting, engineering and
IT services to help clients solve their

Frank Camean. With a 39 percent
growth rate, 4SIGHT Supply Chain
Group comes in at No. 46 on Consulting’s Fastest Growing Firms list.
Camean sat down with Consulting to
discuss the firm and its future.
Consulting: What were the
main factors that contributed
to you exceptional growth rate
between the years 2011 and
Camean: It all boils down to our
brand. That brand is made up of our
people, our hard work, our high-quality workmanship & deliverables, our
trusted long-term relationships with
our clients, our strong partnerships,
and our commitment to build mutually beneficial relationships. Any relationship that is one-sided doesn’t
last long at 4SIGHT. Over that period of time we have hired some of the
best resources in our industry and
have built a reputation for delivering
on our promise with high caliber of
professionalism. Every single client
we sign up to do work with has received beneficial use of our services.
Profits are not the single most important metric in our company.
Consulting: How is 2015
shaping up for your firm?
Camean: This will be our best year
ever. We have achieved record revenues and record staff. Key strategic
hires took place in 2015 and we have
another key announcement to make in
December 2015 before the year closes
that will that will position us for future
growth and strengthen us in other areas of our business. It was a key year
that will help shape our future.
Consulting: How would you
describe your firm’s outlook for
2016? Where do you see the
Camean: The booked backlog for
2016 is greater than it’s ever been
and we’re positioning ourselves
for what could be another record-breaking year. We see the most
opportunities in Omni-Channel
and software technology upgrades.
Our Omni-Channel Practice is
growing by servicing the needs of
our dot-com and retail clients, and
we also see increased activity with
our 3PL clients who are taking on
omni-channel customers into their
Consulting: What do you see as
the biggest challenges for your
firm in 2016?
Camean: The biggest challenge is
the large IT-staffing companies abus-
ing our U.S. guest worker program
driving down market rates. These
large IT-staffing companies are using
H-1B Visa employees as a turn-style
of resources who are stealing Ameri-
can jobs and not offering nationaliza-
tion to their H-1B visa employees, or
permanent U.S. residency.
Consulting: What does being
named one of Consulting’s
Fastest Growing Firms
mean to your firm, your
employees and your clients?
Camean: It means we’re doing something right. It lets our clients know
they have a partner for the long-haul,
a partner that’s here to stay, and a
partner who’s growing. Achieving
this award in our sixth year is a testament that we’re financially strong,
stable, and here for the long-haul
because statistics show that 50 percent of new startups only survive five
years, and only 33 percent survive 10
years. This award demonstrates our
growth and future stability and our
commitment to building a leading
supply chain consulting firm.
