ESG Among Forbes’ America’s Best Management Consulting Firms for Six Years Running

With transformational goals back on the agenda, customers and peers continue to recognize ESG for its domain expertise in the area of supply chain management

Execution Specialists Group (ESG), a strategy execution-focused consultancy, today announced that the organization has been named to the Forbes list of America’s Best Management Consulting Firms for 2021 for the sixth consecutive year. ESG is one of just 230 management consultancies nationwide to earn a spot on the list and is among only 31 firms included in the supply chain management category. This latest recognition follows one of the most challenging years for American businesses in decades, during which ESG continued to demonstrate its strategic value to companies looking to optimize their customer experience through the effective digital transformation of their supply chains. 

“It remains a tremendous honor for ESG to appear among the short list of management consultancies recognized by Forbes, particularly as the ratings are taken directly from both clients and other firms that understand the unique business challenges brought forth by the global pandemic and its aftermath,” said Mark Newhall, founder and CEO, ESG. “In today’s environment businesses have  been challenged like never before. Through our deep domain expertise and decades of experience we have been able to help companies to not only optimize their supply chains but to leverage best practices across the customer experience spectrum to transform them into competitive differentiators in the market.”  

To compile its list, Forbes partnered with market research company Statista to survey partners and executives of management consultancies, as well as senior executives who had worked with such firms over the last four years. Respondents were asked to recommend consultancies across predetermined sectors and functional areas and firms with a disproportionate number of recommendations were organized into star ratings. 

Launched in 2008, ESG has achieved year-over-year growth by offering executional expertise to plan and implement client roadmaps to success. The firm’s cross-functional team has expanded to include a diverse set of specialists at multiple levels and across a variety of industries. In a time of transformation, ESG exists to champion change by providing a practical independent perspective that picks up where strategy leaves off, architecting and executing targeted outcomes for complex cross-functional initiatives.
