Cask is a results-oriented business and technology consulting firm that helps
organizations change, grow and
run their businesses at new levels—previously thought not possible, says Neil Anderson, CMO
of Cask. Anderson sat down with
Consulting to discuss Cask’s 73
percent revenue growth and overall financial performance.
Consulting: What were the main
factors that contributed to your
firm’s exceptional growth?
Anderson: Cask provides a rare
blend of deep domain experience
and technology expertise. This is
a significant differentiator for the
markets we serve and has been the
primary driver of our growth. Our
focus on core values and the concept of being a ‘small giant’ provides the added fuel for our growth.
Cask believes that by taking care of
our employees, our employees will
take care of our clients, and our clients will take care of Cask. We’ve
seen steady growth with existing
customers and continually attract
new customers who seek true business transformation.
Consulting: How is this year shaping
up for your firm?
Anderson: Cask anticipates a
strong 2019 with consistent year
over year growth as we execute
across our business strategies. Cy-
bersecurity continues to be a growth
area across the board, and we have
also seen growth with our Service-
Now partnership across enterprise
and federal customers.
Consulting: How would you describe
your firm’s outlook for 2019? Where
do you see the most opportunities?
Anderson: Cask has strong momentum moving into 2019 and our
growth and scale allow us to deliver
innovative solutions and create differentiation for our clients. Cybersecurity will continue to be an area of
opportunity across enterprise-sized
organizations in the federal and
commercial markets. Digital Transformation supported by true Organizational Change Management will
also cut across industries to deliver
growth in 2019.
Consulting: What would you say
are your firm’s biggest challenges
Anderson: The tactics, strategies,
and organization that fueled Cask’s
growth over the past 3 to 5 years are
not necessarily the same ones that
will help accelerate Cask’s growth
in 2019 and beyond. To continue
this pattern of growth, Cask will
further innovate and evolve. To do
so while retaining the same ‘mojo’
that sets us apart is an exciting prospect for not just our leaders but our
Consulting: What does being named
one of Consulting’s Fastest Growing
Firms mean to your firm, your
employees and your clients?
Anderson: Being one of the Fastest Growing Firms is tremendous
recognition for our entire firm, and
validates the strategic decisions
that enabled our past growth and
success. Cask also strives to be,
and has been recognized for being
a great place to work. Being recognized as a great place to work and
growing fast is a source of tremendous pride for our organization.
For our clients, it is important that
we not just retain but enhance our
ability to execute and continue to
solve the ‘hard problems’ first—as
clients’ success is the biggest driver of our growth.
