Urgent need for sales & marketing focused org design consultant


PE firm needs consulting group to improve sales and marketing functions

A PE partner came to us with an urgent need for a boutique sales consulting group that could perform a sales diagnostic for their software portfolio company and help with org design for the company’s sales and marketing functions. With the head of marketing no longer at the company, the firm was looking to reset the sales and marketing function to improve growth. They needed someone to come in, assess the current sales and marketing function, identify what channels they should be focused on, and then give them guidance on how to build the department and who to hire in order to achieve growth. The firm needed this guidance as soon as possible and were ideally hoping it would come from someone with past marketing experience, and M&A expertise.
