28 Mar 2012

National business and technology firm maintains core values as it reaches 1,500 consultants, 11 offices, and $288 million in yearly revenue

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 done”

  • Enable rewarding careers in a fun, people-focused work environment

  • Embrace a local model backed by national teams

Looking back on a year of success
Slalom helped its clients succeed on a global stage during 2011. The firm provided strategic advice, mobile development, and innovative product solutions for industry-changing platforms throughout the year.

Slalom also won more than 20 awards in 2011, including Microsoft’s “Online Services Partner of the Year” award, a CRN VAR500 “Top Mobility Practice,” and a Consulting Magazine “Best Firms to Work For” award.

A strong start for 2012
Today, Slalom is laying the groundwork for new offices in Boston and Minneapolis. “2012 will be a year of new offerings as well as taking advantage of our previous investments in innovative areas such as cloud, mobility, and the social enterprise. We are excited for the industry-leading companies that are seeking our strategic expertise,” said Tobin.
