Slalom LLC reported record revenue of $288 million for the
calendar year 2011—an increase of 48 percent from 2010, only 11
years after it was founded in 2001. Despite the many ups and downs
of the economy and consulting industry, Slalom has grown every
single year of its existence. The company’s growth has also been
entirely organic and its client list now totals more than 350
enterprise companies, including some of the largest and most
innovative leaders in technology, healthcare, and retail.
“Slalom Consulting’s success is directly related to our drive to
stay true to our values and culture,” said John Tobin, Founder and
National General Manager for Slalom Consulting. “This empowers us
to grow our client base, as well as retain and attract a vibrant
set of employees.”
The core values that empower the firm’s clients, communities,
and culture include:
- Do what is right for the client—always
- Create an environment for collaborative winning
- Develop teams and people that find a way to “get things
- Enable rewarding careers in a fun, people-focused work
- Embrace a local model backed by national teams
