Why I Joined Pace Harmon
"Pace Harmon provided me with the opportunity to leverage my industry experience in IT Management and Strategic Sourcing while working with a variety of top tier companies across a wide range of industries. I was very interested in the collegiate and close-knit culture of a boutique consulting firm where it is very clear that the practitioners, Directors, and Partners all believe in only delivering the highest quality service to each client. This has provided the perfect environment for me to learn from the best and get to know coworkers on a more personal level."
What I Like about Pace Harmon
“What I like most about Pace Harmon is the collegial and entrepreneurial environment of a small firm. There is no place to hide, so you can see that each and every practitioner is working hard to deliver for our clients, and they are happy to help when needed. There are no formal layers or bureaucracy, so everyone has access to Senior Managing Directors, Analysts, or subject experts when support is needed. Whether it is ensuring only the highest quality delivery to our clients, planning social events or coordinating local philanthropic activities, you can clearly see that we are all pulling in the same direction."
The Kind of Work I Do
“Part of the benefits of working at a small firm is that each project is different, and the type of work I do varies with each engagement – I have yet to do the same type of project twice! Most of my engagements include complex analysis of the current environment – this includes financials, technology, operations and strategy – which leads to helping companies develop and execute sourcing strategies that best fit their culture, business objectives, and of course meet the business case goals. As the Pace Harmon CIO, I get to work closely with all the offices and practitioners to ensure that they have the right tools and platforms for efficient and secure delivery of services to our clients.”
