Thursday, April 16, 2015
Patina Solutions, the fast-growing firm that provides proven, accomplished executives with 25+ years of experience for key projects and engagements, has added a Business Transformation practice. The new practice has been designed to assist companies when they are seeking to energize the direction of the business through large-scale change efforts.
"A majority of companies today view transformation as an ongoing form of continuous improvement. Since 2009, Patina has had a successful history of supporting clients with change and transformation initiatives," said Mike Harris, Chief Executive Officer of Patina. "With these services now organized within our new Business Transformation practice, we’ve taken our process and capabilities to the next level, and we’re pleased to bring this exciting offering to companies nationally and internationally."
Business transformation often involves disruptive change to the business with multiple projects and stakeholders across a variety of departments. These large-scale projects are sometimes challenged by an unclear path to success or a lack of resources needed to meet a deadline or goal. These scenarios require a strategic, integrated approach that can be provided by the experienced executives in Patina's Business Transformation practice.
Within the Business Transformation practice, Patina builds a custom plan to provide targeted expertise and hands-on support from practitioners with 25+ years of experience, who bring best practices to help companies succeed. Patina’s professionals come from a wide variety of backgrounds and roles including finance and accounting, sales and marketing, operations, and leadership. This wide breadth of expertise and Patina’s flexible approach means experienced executives can join or lead a company’s transformation initiative in multiple ways.
Todd MacKay will lead Patina's Business Transformation practice. Having held many leadership roles with Accenture, MacKay is a senior executive with 34 years of experience in business transformation, consulting, technology implementation and outsourcing. He has led many enterprise-wide transformational programs and held multiple leadership roles in industry and community organizations.
"It's an honor to welcome Todd as the leader of our Business Transformation practice," said Susan Gallagher, Chief Operating Officer of Patina. "He has extensive strategy, planning, design and delivery experience across most all business functions and has positively impacted more than 40 companies from middle-market to large, global organizations. We are confident in his ability to help our clients advance during transformation."
Patina offers a broad range of business transformation services, including enterprise program management, business performance improvement, business diagnosis and assessment, change management, introduction of breakthrough product/service offerings, support of significant changes in strategy, optimization of technology and more.
"When business leaders are looking for assistance from proven professionals who can help them avoid missteps during large-scale change, it's time to talk to Patina," said MacKay.
