Slalom Consulting National General Manager John Tobin Named One of Consulting Magazine's Top 25 Consultants for 2011

Pioneering New Service Model Earns Tobin Recognition for "Excellence in Leadership"

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - Jun 1, 2011) - Slalom Consulting, a premier business and technology consulting firm, today announced John Tobin, the firm's founder and national general manager, has been named one of Consulting Magazine's Top 25 Consultants for 2011. Specifically, Tobin was selected for the Excellence in Leadership award recognizing his contribution to creating a new service model that has allowed Slalom Consulting to grow more than 40 percent each of the last two years. His leadership, initiative and vision set him apart from more than 400 highly accomplished applicants and earned him a spot among the best consultants in the country. The award will be presented at a gala event at the St. Regis New York on June 8th.

Tobin has been an integral part of building Slalom Consulting since its founding in 2001. He has been pivotal in defining Slalom's unique culture that matches a local model with experience consultants. Under his leadership Slalom Consulting's revenue grew to more than $209 million in 2010. In the mist of the recession, Tobin and his team made a strategic shift to invest in services that improve client business outcomes. Wrapping national practice groups around the company's existing local model set the groundwork for the rapid growth Slalom experienced in 2010. More recently, the firm hired its 1,000th consultant and is expanding into new markets across the nation.

"Since it was founded Slalom has focused on creating a culture that sets our consultants up for success. Less travel, more engagement, teams of experienced consultants -- along with a lot of hard work -- have created our success," said Tobin. "With that in mind, I accept this recognition by Consulting Magazine on behalf of all of our consultants nationwide who are proud to be a part of our unique and winning culture."

In addition to the formal recognition at the award gala, Tobin was profiled in the latest issue of Consulting Magazine, also available here:
