Onboarding Former Big Four Consultant to Address Demand for M&A Projects

About the Client 

Passionate Problem Solvers

Trust and problem solving serves as the pillars of this Big Four consulting company. Its goal is to help businesses solve complex challenges with leading consulting frameworks, solutions, and passion. 

The Situation 

Finding Cost-Takeout Expertise 

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.

The Solution

Leveraging Graphite Pool of Independent Experts 

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 Result 

Achieving Faster Speed to Value

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.
