KNOWLEDGE CAPITAL GROUP
Afew years back the Knowl- edge Capital Group team developed a set of core
values that still ring true today.
Here they are: "Get it Done—We
value hard work and fast-track
actions. We will do whatever it
takes to get the job done; Teamwork—We believe that collaboration leads to more creative ideas
and ultimately a better end product; Results Oriented—We do not
work for work’s sake. We work
to solve problems and add value
in everything we do; Intellectual
Honesty—We accept fault, embrace honesty, and seek counsel
when we don’t have the ‘answer’;
The last 5 percent—We never settle for good enough; and, Dynamic—We are high energy, unyielding, and resilient." Anthony Powell, Managing Director, discussed
Knowledge Capital Group’s performance with Consulting.
Consulting: What were the main
factors that contributed to your firm’s
Powell: While years of extreme-
ly hard work and resolution set
the foundation for the growth
that KCG is experiencing today, I
would credit three key factors to
our success: The team’s dedication
to delivering value in every client
interaction; our clients’ strong bias
to work with a collaborative and
results-oriented partner; and, our
firm’s focus on recruiting and re-
taining the right talent.
Consulting: How is this year shaping
up for your firm?
Powell: 2018 will be one for the

Consulting: How would you describe
your firm’s outlook for 2019? Where
do you see the most opportunities?
Powell: We continue to see strong
demand for our strategy and transformation service offerings—both
in our business and healthcare
practices. To satisfy this demand,
we plan to continue adding consultants to the roster and are actively
recruiting from top-tier MBA programs for June 2019 hires.
Consulting: What would you say
are your firm’s biggest challenges
Powell: I believe our biggest chal-
lenges for 2019 fall into two key
areas—developing a network of
prospects and clients outside of the
Carolinas; and, recruiting and re-
taining talent in this hyper competi-
tive employment market.
Consulting: What does being named
one of Consulting’s Fastest Growing
Firms mean to your firm, your em-
ployees and your clients?
Powell: Internally, all of us at KCG
are very proud of the designation
and pleased to be listed alongside
so many other prestigious, growing
firms. The recognition, on a more
tactical level, also helps quantify
the value of the long hours and hard
work each member of the team puts
forth throughout the year. Externally, our clients see our hard work on
a day-to-day basis and are beneficiaries of our dedication and commitment to value. We believe collaboration leads to more creative ideas and
a better end product and have fostered such strong partnerships with
our clients that they often think of us
as part of their own teams. A win for
us is a win for our clients, and they
are thrilled that we are receiving outside, third-party recognition.
