Slalom Consulting Announces New Office in Toronto

Slalom Brings an Innovative Approach to Consulting to the Canadian Market

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - May 12, 2016) -  Canadian companies now have access to Slalom, a leading business and technology consulting firm that helps some of the world's biggest brands solve their most complex and interesting business challenges. Slalom touts award-winning partnerships with technology and solution providers like Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, Salesforce, and Tableau.

In a global market where innovation is increasingly important to keep and stay ahead of the competition, Canadian companies need to quickly develop solutions and bring them to market. Slalom helps clients accelerate this process with an agile approach to problem solving and a proven ability to innovate and execute.

Slalom's new Canadian office is led by Saskatchewan native and technology leader Wayne Ingram, who has built a team of 60 highly skilled Canadian consultants to support the unique business needs of their Canadian clientele.

"Slalom has the agility, energy, and culture of a start-up combined with the resources, reach, and scale of a global company, allowing us to think big, act fast, and see results," said Wayne Ingram, managing director of Slalom Canada. "I believe it is critical to drive innovation here in Canada. I know what we are capable of and that is why I am passionate about the freedom Slalom gives to its employees and brings to its clients to not only solve a problem, but implement the solution."

Slalom was founded in 2001, and became wildly successful in the US by creating a culture that fosters great work, incubates revolutionary ideas, and offers flexibility for its employees. Slalom is home to nearly 4,000 consultants with revenues close to CAD $1 billion. In 2016, the firm was named one of Fortune's 100 Best Companies to Work For and a Glassdoor Best Places to Work.

Slalom moved into its Toronto office suite at 8 King Street East in January 2016. The Canadian team at Slalom is growing in step with a rapidly expanding client base of prestigious Canadian clients, many of whom are global leaders in their respective markets. Slalom has its sights set on opening offices in Vancouver, Calgary, Ottawa and Montreal, bringing the local market model supported by a strong global network to clients in these cities.
