MLC & Associates, Inc., a management-consulting firm focused on improving clients' people, processes, technology and facilities, is celebrating 25 years of positioning its clients for growth and success and has also announced the promotion of Prashant Kumar to president and CEO to lead the firm's aggressive plans for continued expansion. The company doubled sales between 2011 and 2012 and is aiming for similar annual growth for the next five years, including the addition of new offices in across the United States and India.
MLC & Associates helps large- and mid-size clients with business continuity, corporate performance management and organizational development, drawing from a team with a wealth of experience and expertise in finance, engineering and economics. The company's strengths have helped MLC beat the odds; just one in four new-employer firms survive beyond 15 years(1), and MLC has been thriving for 25.
"We've weathered three recessions because of our forward-thinking capabilities and honest, personal style," says Mary Carrido, Chairman and Founder of MLC & Associates. "Clients know they can trust us for the truly personalized service and honest assessments that guide them through major organizational change and transformational improvement. Prashant is part of our own corporate change, having brought a special expertise in corporate performance management as well as a keen understanding of our ambitious expansion projects. In a day and age where even major corporations often don't survive 25 years, we're confidently anticipating another quarter of a century of growth under Prashant's leadership."
The firm evolved since 1987, accommodating the service lines and expertise to best help clients' growth, including MLC's emphasis on business continuity and expansion of capabilities in corporate performance management and cloud technology. Leveraging cloud technology has broadened MLC's reach to offer smaller clients access to Fortune 500-level services by packaging its core services in a way that's affordable for smaller companies. While implementing changes in large organizations can take more time, opening MLC's services up to mid-size companies has allowed the management consultancy to make an impressive impact on clients' futures. Kumar's commitment to cloud technology has presented MLC's service lines to a previously underserved market.
MLC is uniquely able to bridge the gap between strategy, tactics and operations -- working with companies to see a plan through from start to finish. Clients benefit form MLC's strong focus on key performance indicators and metrics, which are integral to all of the firms' practices and offer clients the ability to track progress and ROI.
"We really practice what we preach, constantly examining and refining our own people, processes and technologies to better serve our clients," says Prashant Kumar, newly appointed president and CEO of MLC & Associates. "That's part of what puts us a decade ahead of any competitor, and it's what makes companies choose us time and again over larger firms that simply can't offer the same consistent ROI that we do. From implementing cloud technology throughout each of our practices, to expanding our service offerings and capabilities, and holding ourselves accountable with key performance indicators and metrics -- MLC works tirelessly to ensure programs are effective and efficient from ideation through execution. I'm proud to lead such a uniquely talented and dedicated team."
