Challenge

A PE VP of Operations came to us with a critical need for a digital marketing consultant for their entire portfolio. Each company within the firm’s portfolio was experiencing similar problems around communicating digital marketing spend. They saw this as an opportunity to bring in a team that could conduct a portfolio-wide digital marketing assessment and consult the portcos on their current processes, if they were good or bad, where to spend their budget, & more. Given the importance of digital marketing in today’s world, they were looking for an team that was available to start that same month.
