One on One with the Keystone Group's Andy Rolfe

Back in 1991, Andersen consultant Andy Rolfe reached the fork in the road all-too-familiar to career consultants: to partner, or not to partner?

So he set out on his own.

Andy Wolfe Back in 1991, Andersen consultant Andy Rolfe reached the fork in the road all-too-familiar to career consultants: to partner, or not to partner? He enjoyed his work at Andersen, where he helped them build their strategic services practice, but he believed in doing things a certain way, and knew that moving a ship as large as Andersen would take more time than he was willing to wait. So he set out on his own, “going from the world’s largest consulting firm to the world’s smallest, overnight.” He formed The Keystone Group, a strategy and operations firm, and the rest is history. Today, Keystone operates in Chicago, Atlanta and Dallas, and has had an average revenue growth rate of 22 percent for each of the last four years. Rolfe sat down with Consulting to talk about how he built the kind of firm he wanted to work for.
