Savan Group is a manage- ment, IT, and digital trans- formation consulting firm.
“Its mission is to offer consulting
deserving of our clients,” says
Veeral Majmudar, President &
CEO of Savan Group. Consulting sat down with Majmudar to
discuss the firm’s No. 8 ranking.
Consulting: What were the main
factors that contributed to your firm’s
Majmudar: Savan Group has been
committed to investing in our staff
on both the service delivery and operations sides, growing our firm’s
leadership team, expanding our
service offerings to include digital
transformation, and acquiring new
work—both by expanding our reach
with existing clients as well as winning new contracts. We find success
through people. Because we believe
this, we’ve invested in new training
and professional development opportunities. This has paid dividends, as
we’re able to place highly qualified
and seasoned talent in our client environments. Our workplace culture
embodies high-energy, top-perform-ing, and results-driven individuals
who have propelled our organization
forward not only in their quests to execute our firm’s mission, but also as
they’ve made targeted goals for personal and professional development.
We take a lot of pride in that.
Consulting: How would you describe
your firm’s outlook for 2020?
Majmudar: We are excited about the
coming year: we’re partnering with
new and existing clients and pressing forward with a particular focus
on digital transformation to create a
more customer-centric experience for
stakeholders. As government agencies continue to focus on IT modernization efforts, information and data
management, and digital solutions,
Savan Group has the opportunity to
bring our expertise in digital strategy,
advanced analytics, data visualization, and intelligent process automation into our clients’ organizations to
help them understand what data they
have, where it is, its security, and importantly how they can use it in an
efficient and effective way. As we
look towards 2020, we know digital
transformation will be the area where
our clients face the most challenges,
and with our current toolkit and the
ability to sketch out new solutions for
unique problems, we are enthusiastic
about the path we are on.
Consulting: What are your firm’s
biggest challenges in 2020?
Majmudar: As I’m sure several
other consulting firms will echo, we
must continue to recruit talented people who not only possess the depth
and breadth of expertise needed to
meet our clients’ challenges, but who
embody the core values we uphold
as a firm: integrity, hustle, quality,
accountability, and collaboration.
We’ve been successful in doing so
these past few years, but it’s a very
job seeker–friendly market, which
has required us to employ more in-
tentional strategies for recruiting and
retaining our people. Secondly, we
have been keeping up with the curve
in terms of the types of challenges
our clients our facing, which is why
we expanded our service offerings to
include digital transformation. Now
that we’re there, the challenge will be
to stay ahead of that curve. We need
to continue thinking about the types
of solutions we can offer, which in-
cludes leveraging emerging technol-
ogies and applying innovative orga-
nizational design principles.
Consulting: What does being named
a Fastest Growing Firm mean to your
firm, employees and clients?
Majmudar: First of all, what an honor to have made this list for yet another consecutive year—especially considering the challenges faced by all
government contracting firms in our
industry at the start of 2019. Thank
you, Consulting Magazine! It’s a testament to our employees, leadership,
and the trust our clients continue to
have in us. I think that receiving this
recognition is proof of the resiliency
and grit we possess as a unit.
