IT Strategy and Implementation


Memphis, TN

Client Details:

Our client is a large US private equity firm focused on consumer and leisure, media and communications and industrials sectors. One of their portfolio companies, that manufactured and sold ceiling fans, required a strategic assessment of IT infrastructure and systems, and required a strong consultant to lead the effort.

Client Situation:

The ideal candidate has strategic consulting experience, background in technology and IT infrastructure, and a track record of success with private equity portfolio companies. While “IT Strategy” is a generalized term, the client required a consultant with strong knowledge of business strategy and cost analysis. ECA worked with MidOcean to identify key deliverables, potential cost savings, and was able to quicky staff an experienced consultant from Booz / McKinsey. We ultimately placed a highly successful candidate that led a strategic review of IT infrastructure, and the relevant systems across the portfolio company.
