HQ: CYPRESS, CALIF.
Global Conductor is a management
consulting firm that supports its
clients with strategy and the implementation of large-scale business
transformation and enterprise system initiatives. Built on a foundation of expertise and core values,
Global Conductor establishes solid
client relationships centered on trust
and integrity, says Troy Edgar, CEO
and President of the firm.
Consulting caught up with Edgar to discuss
the firm’s 64 percent growth rate and
No. 50 ranking.
Consulting: What were the main
factors that contributed to your
firm’s exceptional growth?
Edgar: We were able to capitalize on
great market opportunities due to our
years of developing and maintain-
ing a great group of consultants. We
genuinely understand the experience,
skill level, and aspirations of our con-
sultants. By pairing the correct con-
sultants to our clients we are able to
orchestrate success. We work hard to
build a strong relationship with our
clients, know their goals, and provide
the best service possible.
Consulting: How is this year
shaping up for your firm?
Edgar: This has been another exceptional year for the firm and we
have continued to grow. Earlier this
year we added a new office in Pla-no, Texas to address the significant
consulting needs in the Central U.S.
region. We have continued to make
even greater strides in serving our
clients globally. Our consistent
success, engagement flexibility,
and integrity has allowed us to
partner with our Clients and other
consulting firms in new and exciting ways, and the results have been
great. The industry is ever-changing, but the concept is the same—
help Clients achieve success! We
look forward to each opportunity
to do that year after year.
Consulting: How would you
describe your firm’s outlook for
2017? Where do you see the
Edgar: 2017 will be another great
year. With the continued low cost of
capital, many client companies are
preparing for growth through both
consolidation of corporate services
and addressing key process and sys-
tem optimizations—this is where
we thrive. Large-scale process
transformations, mergers, estab-
lishing or refining shared services,
and improving operations through
key ERP and IT initiatives continue
to drive consulting demand.
Consulting: What would you
say are your firm’s biggest
challenges in 2017?
Edgar: We must continue to maintain and recruit new talent that will
allow us to preserve the quality that
our Clients have come to expect
from Global Conductor. We pride
ourselves on providing our Clients
a deep level of experience and expertise; this is our reputation. Each
one of our consultants is an ambassador to our clients. We significantly depend on them and our account
teams to uphold our brand.
Consulting: What does being
named one of Consulting’s
Fastest Growing Firms mean to
your firm, your employees and
Edgar: It is a great honor to be recognized in our industry as one of
Consulting’s Fastest Growing Firms!
Our team has worked very hard and
we greatly appreciate the acknowledgment. Our Clients place a great
deal of trust in us, and they share in
our success as well. With continued
dedication, we plan to keep up the
pace in the years to come.
