AUSTIN, Texas, October 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Maven Associates is a mid-size management consulting firm. They deploy project teams made up of alumni from Bain, BCG and McKinsey on projects ranging from strategy and growth to improving profits.
The pandemic has transformed the way people live, connect and work, and the consulting industry has not been immune to the changes. As some parts of the world transition to post-COVID normal, consultants are at a crossroads. Big companies are sold. The mid-market consultancy space faces opportunities – if companies can adapt.
âRight now, large companies are running out of capacity and are starting to use contract consultants. Contract consultants have been an integral part of our business model from the start, âsaid Mark Hess, Founder of Maven Associates.
âIt will be interesting to see how the Consultants operate, evolve and refine their services over the coming year. Lucky for us, Maven Associates has long been set up with a remote workforce. We operate effectively and efficiently in this climate; we’ve been for years. “
Mark founded Maven Associates in 2009 after serving as Director at Stagen and Vice President of Strategy and Business Development at GES. Its goal was to provide world-class advice to the mid-market by leveraging alumni at Bain, BCG and McKinsey. With his dynamic team of specialists, Mark gives clients access to top talent and proven methodologies at a fraction of the cost.
âAt Maven, we’ve always done things differently,â said Mark. âWe challenge the status quo and have always embraced new and innovative ways to drive results for our clients. “
âConsultants are notorious for getting on and off planes and entering and exiting offices. It’s the conventional way of doing business. This new paradigm will be difficult for some, but Maven is thrilled about it. “
Over the past decade, Mark has achieved exceptional results in the projects he has led. For a roughly $ 300 million metalsmaker, its growth acceleration strategy should maximize its exit valuation multiples. In addition, he helped an approximately $ 40 million publisher improve profitability and identify new growth opportunities, and he developed a growth strategy for an approximately $ 100 million SaaS company.
Mark’s successes go beyond growth, value creation and organizational design. Data-driven in his approach, he performs competitive analysis and due diligence, particularly for organizations before and after private equity acquisitions.
âIt’s another space to watch as the world moves forward,â said Mark. “I will be keeping an eye on whether private equity experiences a significant decline next year.”
In the face of uncertainty, businesses will face new challenges. If they don’t innovate to respond to changes in the marketplace and changing consumer sentiment, they may not survive. While Mark and the team at Maven Associates are optimistic, they understand that the next chapter of growth is daunting for many companies.
âHelping organizations thrive in uncharted territory is what we do best,â said Mark, who has first-hand experience in the challenges of growing businesses.
âWe have to see the change as an opportunity. With our expertise in consulting and management, we provide companies with the support and strategic advice they need to find concrete solutions to their problems. “
Maven Associates provides an independent perspective that aligns decision makers and inspires organizations to take action. Creative problem solvers and fast learners, Maven is home to talent dedicated to client outcomes.
With expertise in growth strategy, profit improvement, due diligence, M&A support and annual planning, as well as extensive industry networks, Maven challenges clients to rethink their business and unlock opportunities – even when that future is not written down.
“Like me, my business is values ââdriven. We aim to bring real value to the middle market, and we do it by thinking like owners.”
