Slalom Consulting Opens New York City Office

Rapidly Expanding Business and Technology Consulting Firm Brings Top Senior Management Team to New Office, Led by Industry Veteran Chris McGrath

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Aug 4, 2011) - Slalom Consulting, a national business and technology consulting firm, opened its tenth U.S. office today, located in New York City. The office is led by twenty-two year consulting veteran Chris McGrath and a strong lineup of experienced practice group directors, including Jeff Deyerle, Jeff Van Wie, and Marc Raderman.

Slalom's New York office will combine the firm's local model with proven leaders in technology and business consulting. In particular, the New York office brings exceptionally strong experience to Slalom's Information Management, Microsoft-based technologies, CRM, and Mobility practices. The new office will grow to 50 consultants in 2011 and more than 100 in 2012.

"We take a different approach to project work -- focusing on smaller, experienced, local teams that work closely with clients to deliver real value," said Chris McGrath, general manager, Slalom New York. "There isn't a firm quite like us in New York. We have a tremendous advantage in how quickly we can engage across a variety of practice areas and industries, and I'm excited about our ability to support our New York clients with our unique model."

Prior to the office opening, the New York team has seen significant traction across major industries in the region, including banking, retail, communications, media, and insurance. Within all these industries, Slalom teams are in the field working side-by-side with clients. Slalom New York is also seeing immediate growth in their mobile practice, and expects to become the leading provider of mobile solutions in the New York market.

The Slalom New York office is located at 5 Penn Plaza, moving to the Flatiron district in the fall.
