Our People – Your Success

When you choose a management consulting firm, you are choosing its people. From our CEO to our administrative staff, every member of our team has one goal: the success of our clients.

We measure our success by our clients’ success and try to see everything through their eyes. We behave and interact with our clients with integrity, decorum, sensitivity, maturity, and in a manner that conveys our pleasure in serving them.

When these bedrock values are married to industry expertise and business management know-how, it creates a blueprint that helps overcome even the toughest challenges.

Smart. Focused. Done Right.® is not just a tagline. It is a litmus test for our people.

Expert Consultants Who Know Energy and Corporate Shared Services

When we recruit new consultants and staff, we look first for a demonstrated and proven set of values, integrity, and principles. Our clients expect this of us, and we will not compromise on these qualities because we know our reputation is our most important asset. This approach has made ScottMadden a leading energy utility consulting firm. Our consultants in the Corporate & Shared Services practice have completed thousands of projects, including hundreds of large multi-year implementations starting in the 1990s when ScottMadden helped pioneer shared services.

Built on Integrity. Forged by Experience. Fueled by Vision.

At ScottMadden, we believe management consulting is more than just producing a report. We are dedicated to providing an exceptional consulting experience across every facet of the engagement. Driven by the example of our leadership team, our consultants are focused on delivering value, listening to the needs of our clients, and rolling up our sleeves to get to work with a sense of humility. We are honored and privileged to work with our clients – not the other way around.

Every day, everyone at ScottMadden aims to live our motto: Smart. Focused. Done Right.®
