Big Four Consulting Company

The Client

A Big 4 consulting company that helps businesses solve complex challenges with leading consulting solutions in industries such as cloud and digital, cybersecurity and privacy, governance/boards, risk, transformation and tax services

Business Situation

The professional services company was assisting a technology company with an acquisition transaction. They needed an independent consultant with a background in cost takeout strategy and real estate optimization. The client needed a consultant with a strong financial modeling background to deliver results quickly and efficiently in less than three months

Graphite Solution

The client’s dedicated Graphite account executive leveraged Graphite’s proprietary technology to filter through over 120 highly vetted independent M&A support consultants on Graphite to present a shortlist of four candidates who met the client’s specific requirements.


The technology company hired a former EY consultant on Graphite with over 20 years financial industry experience in growth strategy, M&A and enterprise value optimization. In this ongoing transaction, the professional services company and the end client have both gained the ability to access the expertise of an M&A expert located across the coast on-demand.

As M&A transactions continue to operate at all-time high levels in 2021, the professional services company is able to support this highly valuable project without hiring the expert full-time and achieving faster speed to value.
