Consulting caught up Edgar with to discuss the firm’s finances.
Consulting: What were the
main factors that contributed
to your firm’s growth?
Edgar: Our exceptional team and
great partnerships with our Clients.
Global Conductor is focused on
strong relationships with both our
team and our clients. One of the
benefits of being a mid-sized consulting company that is able to genuinely understand the knowledge,
skill level, and aspirations of our
consultants. By pairing the correct
consultant to a client we are able
to achieve more. We work hard to
know our Clients’ goals and provide the best service possible.
Consulting: How is this year
shaping up for your firm?
Edgar: This year has been busy!
We are very encouraged by our re-
markable clients and the exciting
projects we have in process now,
as well as the reception we have
received at every new engage-
ment. Our past successes and en-
gagement flexibility has allowed
us to partner with our Clients,
and other consulting firms, in new
ways and the results have been
great. The industry is ever-chang-
ing, 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
Edgar: 2018 promises to be another
great year. On a macro-level, due to
the low cost of capital, we are seeing companies prepare for growth
through both consolidation and
expansion, often realized through
process and system optimizations—
where we thrive. Large-scale process transformations, mergers and
relocations, innovative ERP and
IT initiatives focused on Big Data
utilization, and the need for skilled
OCM expertise are all key drivers
for us in the coming years.
Consulting: What would you
say are your firm’s biggest
challenges in 2018?
Edgar: Recruiting new talent that
will allow us to maintain the quality
that our clients have come to expect
from Global Conductor. We pride
ourselves on our background and
deep level of experience. Consult-
ing is very much a reputation busi-
ness. Each of our consultants is an
ambassador to our clients who we
depend on to uphold our brand.

named one of Consulting’s
Fastest Growing Firms mean
to your firm, your employees
and your clients?

named as one of Consulting’s Fastest Growing Firms! Everyone at
GC truly believes in our core values and direction. We have worked
very hard to earn our growth and
greatly appreciate the recognition.
Our clients place a great deal of
trust in us, and they share in our

pace in years to come.
