AG Consulting Partners

Rank: 35 Revenue Growth: 157%

AG Consulting Partners is a business consulting firm dedicated to delivering exceptional results. “Our innovative business solutions span three service lines: management consulting, program and project management, and on-shore business process outsourcing. Our employees embrace the entrepreneurial spirit and embody our core values: transparency, stewardship, and intention. Machine learning, deep learning and artificial intelligence are buzzwords in the IT consulting industry right now and there is huge opportunity for growth in this field,” says Mikhail Gringauz, Vice President. “Building the infrastructure, processes, programs and offerings to apply and capitalize on the output of this information is where we separate ourselves from the competition.” Consulting caught up with Gringauz to discuss AG Consulting Partners performance the last several years.

Consulting: What were the main factors that contributed to your firm’s exceptional growth? 

Gringauz: AG Consulting Partners growth is attributed to our deep client relationships, extensive industry expertise and dedicated and talented employees. Senior leadership is engaged in every project so we understand content and not just staffing. We are a company united by our dedication to our mission: we take care of our people first so they can bring the best in consulting to our clients.

Consulting:How is this year shaping up for your firm? 

Gringauz:  2017 has been an exciting year for us as we evolve from a boutique to a mid-size firm while focusing on growth and stability. There are many challenges with this transition—from expanding our service offerings, to recruiting the best in the business, to back office infrastructure. Our people are integral to developing our practice while committed to serving our clients.

Consulting:How would you describe your firm’s outlook for 2018? Where do you see the most opportunities? 

Gringauz: We are very optimistic for 2018 as we gain traction bringing new service offerings using emerging technologies to market. We expect to distinguish ourselves as industry leaders, as clients continue to adopt these innovative offerings and actualize value.

Consulting: What would you say are your firm’s biggest challenges in 2018? 

Gringauz: Our biggest challenge in the next year is managing our growth without losing sight of who we are. We treat our employees like family and we want to retain that personal touch. We know from experience that by caring for our people, they go the extra mile for our clients because they feel empowered and valued.

Consulting: What does being named one of Consulting‘s Fastest Growing Firms mean to your firm, your employees and your clients? 

Gringauz: This recognition is an honor for our firm and employees as we pause to reflect on the last eight years—how far we’ve come and how far we want to go. To our past, present and future clients, this acknowledgment validates that relationships and results are the key to our collective success.
