Myrtle Consulting Group drives operational trans- formation, operations
excellence, and continuous improvement for global manufacturing, processing, and distribution organizations. Consulting
caught up with Edwin Bosso,
Founder and CEO of the firm.
Consulting: What were the main
factors that contributed to your firm’s
Bosso: Three pillars drive exception-
al growth at Myrtle: First, our focus
is on the customer first. All our proj-
ects are custom-designed around cli-
ent-specific challenges and our suc-
cess is tied directly to the client suc-
cess. Our ultimate aim is to generate
a true transformation project that sets
a new baseline, allowing the client to
own the solution and begin to work
towards continuous improvement be-
fore we even leave the site. Secondly,
Myrtle has a very diverse team, and
we continue growing toward that
end. We believe that different cultur-
al backgrounds, educations, experi-
ences, expertise, genders, ages, and
other elements that make each of us
unique also provides a unique insight
into many of the challenges faced by
our clients and the solutions and how
they are implemented. Finally, al-
though Myrtle is comprised of a very
diverse team, we are centered around
a common set of values that govern
how we work and live.
Consulting: How is this year shaping
up for your firm?
Bosso: 2019 and 2020 are set up
to be significant growth years for
us; our pipeline is strong. Our
global reach is bearing fruit, and
we continue to expand our industry clientele. As we grow, we continue to bring great talent on board
and develop our existing people.
We launched our “Myrtle Millennial” college recruiting program
to bring young talent into the field
and further develop them. We are
conducting an initiative to encourage women to enter the operational
consulting field and advance the
careers of those that are already
with us. I am also finishing a book
project and expect publication in
the first quarter of next year. There
is quite a lot to be excited about!
Consulting: How would you describe
your firm’s outlook for 2020?
Bosso: We continue the execution
of our growth and geographical expansion strategy. This strategy will
continue to be our focus over the
next 12 months. Our geographic
and industry sector diversification
is central to that focus. Our client-first focus remains paramount,
as is our delivery of great transformation programs for them.
Consulting: What are your firm’s
biggest challenges in 2020?
Bosso: It is a world of fast-moving change, but many things stay
constant. I have been in this business for a long time, and one of the
things that is constant is that clients will always have challenges,
although the nature of their challenges may change.
Consulting: What does being named
a Fastest Growing Firm mean to your
firm, employees and clients?
Bosso: Our commitment to client-first is deliberate, intentional,
and visible. Our attention to cli-ent-specific challenges, engagement
at all levels of their organizations,
and generating measurable results
ensure a long-term, mutually beneficial relationship with our clients.
Additionally, our commitment to
attract, develop, and retain top talent in line with our corporate values
is real and tangible, proven by our
several best workplaces awards received in the past few years.
