Graphite Case Studies

Sephora, the #1 prestige beauty retailer in the U.S. and Canada, needed support on a new in-store employee education program. The company was looking for a consultant with experience at a top-tier firm, who could help with creating an online survey of 100+ beauty brands, conducting associated financial analysis, codifying new brand guidelines, and establish a reporting mechanism to evaluate the effectiveness of brand visits.

Through Graphite, Sephore hired Paul M., a Harvard graduate and former McKinsey consultant with relevant retail and consumer goods experience. Paul’s prior background in workplace training and education as well as survey creation and analysis were the perfect matches for Sephora’s needs.
Genus plc, a British publicly traded producer of bovine genetics products, needed help developing an operational strategy implementation plan. To ensure success, Genus was looking for an experienced strategy consultant that could translate a strategy vision into an operational plan that included milestones, deliverables, an implementation structure, and buy-in from the broader organization.

Through Graphite, Genus was quickly introduced to Helen Q., an innovation and strategy consultant with prior experience at McKinsey. With a strong background and experience in innovation across the corporate world, Helen proved to be the ideal candidate and helped Genus organize and implement a high-level strategy that transformed the organization.
Danaher, a global conglomerate and Fortune 500 life sciences company, needed an expert to augment its analytics team. It needed someone with a background in strategy, consulting, banking and qualitative marketing who could consolidate and synthesize large, complex data sets concerning market potential, revenue and channel coverage models.

Through Graphite, Danaher hired Nevin R., a Harvard graduate with Big Three management consulting experience and a private equity background. Nevin was able to deliver precisely the analysis Danaher needed while committing to the project full-time and producing high-quality insights the company used to great success.
