Graphite Case Studies

TransAxle, a Graham Partners portfolio company and the largest manufacturer of drive train components along the U.S. East Coast, was expanding sales by adding two large customers a new geographic footprint. The company was looking for an analyst with a strong background in manufacturing and logistics to analyze its finished good inventory and ensure it had the cored goods in locations that would optimize sales while minimizing non-value-added transfers to maintain optimized stock levels.

Through Graphite, Transaxle found Robert K., a consultant and professional with 10 years of manufacturing and supply chain experience. Robert had the exact skills and expertise required for the job and had just completed a similar project for another company, where he optimized inventory including dispositions and discounting. His industry knowledge as well as his expertise in using data and creating actionable improvement plans allowed him to deliver on Transaxle’s needs quickly and successfully.
Lateral Investment Management, a private credit firm that provides growth capital to independent, middle-market businesses, was urgently looking for industry analyses on a variety of niche sectors. It needed experienced strategy consultants to conduct each analysis.

Within 48 hours Graphite connected Lateral with six consultants, all with top-tier strategy consulting backgrounds, to lead the individual market studies. The consultants dove deep into each sector and presented their analysis to Lateral within two weeks. Lateral managing partner Richard de Silva says, “It was refreshing to have access to professionals with niche domain expertise through the Graphite network. We were able to hire multiple consultants in a very short period of time and each delivered high-end work products while meeting our tight deadlines.”
NEC, a Fortune 1000 information and communications technology company, was looking to bring on an interim analytics solution architect as part of its global strategy team. Specific business objectives included creating a solution concept for the global market as well as marketable use cases. The candidate also needed to have large-scale solution architecture skills as well as in-depth knowledge of analytics solutions and platforms, domain application knowledge, and public sector expertise.

Through Graphite, NEC hired Inigo M., a strategic high-tech executive and enterprise software architect with large-scale project experience involving AI, machine learning, and analytics. Inigo provided to be the perfect for the project, with experience with Cienaga Systems, AT&T, and Merrill Lynch Online, as well as being a Six Sigma Black Belt with lean and business process management experience throughout the entire software development life cycle (SDLC).
