Slalom Consulting Surpasses $100M Revenues and Opens Dallas Office

Company Exceeds Aggressive Growth Goal for 2007 and Continues Nationwide Expansion

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - December 17, 2007) - Slalom Consulting, ranked one of the best consulting firms to work for in the U.S., today announced it achieved $100M in revenues, and officially opened a new office in Dallas, fueled by the success of its national expansion plan. Slalom established aggressive growth targets for 2007 based on expectations for market traction in existing offices, and in Atlanta, Denver and San Francisco, where offices were recently opened.

Slalom's rapid and consistent growth is attributed to its core group of expert, locally-based management consulting teams backed by specialists in advanced technology areas such as Business Intelligence and ERP. Slalom's specialized solutions areas, including CRM, portals, compliance, architecture, development and more, have contributed significantly to the ongoing growth, delivering services that address today's most challenging areas for large- and medium-sized enterprises. Focusing on areas of the utmost relevance in today's business and technology climate, Slalom has built an unparalleled offering in the consulting arena. Further, Slalom's business model, based on 50% Team-Based Initiatives and 50% Project Leadership, provides clients with important options for each project, such as implementing full-team support, or enlisting one or two specialized experts from Slalom.

Already positioned for growth, the Dallas office currently supports clients including Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas (HCSC),, Raytheon, and others. Looking forward to 2008, the Dallas office will focus on building its leadership team, adding solution areas and expanding its client base. Nationally, Slalom's client roster includes: Microsoft, Allstate, Boeing, AT&T, Expedia, Motorola, Schnitzer Steel, GAP, Starbucks and Western Union, and recent additions such as Qwest and Williams-Sonoma. Additionally, Slalom's unique culture is expected to carry into Dallas, where consultants are encouraged to put local clients first, while still maintaining a work-life balance and developing their careers.

"No other consulting firm operates with the same philosophy and dedication to excellence as Slalom. Market by market we are proving to the large enterprises in the U.S. that our local model and collaborative client-focused approach works," said John Tobin, national managing director of Slalom Consulting. "Slalom has maintained a strong growth trend through recent years, and the opening of the Dallas office comes at the perfect time to continue the extension of our nationwide footprint. If the Dallas group follows the same growth curve demonstrated by our other markets, there is no doubt it will be a thriving and profitable office within its first year of operations."

Slalom intends to maintain its steady expansion strategy in the U.S. throughout 2008, and will announce additional office openings in the coming months. For more information, visit
