Strong-Bridge Consulting and Envision Business Consulting announced today that they will combine, through a majority investment by Bow River Capital Partners. Together, the two firms will offer expanded capabilities and a larger geographic footprint.
Envision, a 100-employee management consulting firm, operates additional offices in Milwaukee, serving the Midwest, and Manhattan, serving the Northeast. The firm works with corporate, government, and institutional clients, delivering business transformation services, including strategy and operations, organizational change management, human capital management, business technology enablement, and leadership development.
Strong-Bridge’s practice areas include customer excellence, business transformation, and technology solutions, provided to some of the country’s leading companies. Envision brings additional capabilities, including deep and well-regarded expertise in change management and human capital management.
“Growth has been a top priority for us to meet changing client requirements. As the pace of change has accelerated, our clients’ needs have expanded,” said Envision co-founder Rob Novick. “This combination delivers tremendous value and benefits to our clients and employees across the U.S., enabling us to provide enhanced services with Strong-Bridge, a partner who shares our vision and values for client service and customer care.”
“The combination of our services and leadership are remarkably complementary, but the biggest win for us is our shared values,” explained Strong-Bridge co-CEO Ken Simpson. “Our values have driven the firm since its inception, so it has always been a critical part of our strategic growth plan. Envision’s values reflect our own, with a great deal of care taken in doing the right thing for clients, and for employees.”
