Raleigh, NC – November 5, 2021 – ScottMadden’s president and CEO, Brad Kitchens, has been named one of Consulting Magazine’s Top 25 Consultants for 2021. Kitchens is the sole winner for Excellence in Energy.
The Top 25 list recognizes premier U.S. consultants – including all industries and functional specializations – who have achieved distinction by delivering superior client service, adapting and innovating new products and industry practices, and making substantial contributions to their firms’ bottom line.
This year’s Top 25 honorees will be recognized at an awards ceremony on December 9 at Chelsea Piers in New York City.
“After more than 30 years of consulting and working with energy clients, I am honored. Providing exceptional client service is one of ScottMadden’s core values, and I have always tried to live up to that high standard. From my perspective, this award is a recognition of the entire firm and its relentless focus on our clients and their success,” said Kitchens.
Brad has worked extensively in the energy sector on strategic planning, mergers and acquisitions, operations improvement, reorganizations, and governance. Brad routinely works with energy organizations’ executive teams and boards of directors. He is also a frequent speaker to energy leadership and at energy conferences.
“Brad has an impressive list of energy clients and strategic projects under his belt – it is not a surprise that he earned recognition as a consulting industry leader. He has directed ScottMadden’s consistent growth based on providing high-quality, objective advice and support to help our clients solve their most difficult problems,” said Cristin Lyons, partner and energy practice leader.
